The first poster (below) for M. Night Shyamalan’s new sci-fi, After Earth, has arrived on-line and it comes with a warning. “1000 years ago we left for a reason” it says, and with the image of crashed ship and all that mist covering the actually rather gorgeous landscape, it is clear that poor old Will Smith and his Son should not have returned!
Apparently there are plans in place to really go into a lot of detail on the background stories here, with a prequel comic and novella series all planned to arrive before the film lands in cinemas in June 2013.
Written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, After Earth stars Will and Jaden Smith alongside Isabelle Fuhrman, Zoe Kravitz, David Denman and Kristofer Hivju.
After Earth arrives in UK cinemas 7th June 2013.
A crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash. Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home.
