It is taking a lot to convince me that M. Night Shyamalan’s new sci-fi, After Earth, will actually be any good. The posters are a bit rubbish, and the trailers looked ok but made the idea look very limited and a bit, well, boring really.
However, things have changed a little now that a very impressive TV spot has been released. Add some sort of monster to anything, and it immediately gets a thumbs up from me. Add a lot of monsters and you have my interest, and that is just what the new TV spot does! Check it out below.
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.
