Oh look. It’s another end-of-the-world movie. I must confess, I’m all about those but Will Smith let’s not pull another I Am Legend please? After Earth releases June 7th take a look. I’m psyched!

PS. This time Will saves the day in 4 languages! English, Hindi, Tamil & Telugu.

Pretty ironically there was a crazy rumor doing the rounds today that Will Smith fell to his death in New Zealand! But it was just another ridiculous Internet hoax. Are people still falling for those? I’m looking at you HRH :)

So how does Will Smith save the world (again)?

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.

Trivia

Second time that real-life father and son Will Smith and Jaden Smith play father and son on screen. The first time was in The Pursuit of Happiness. 

The original idea for the film was about a father and son on a camping trip. The son would’ve had to make his way through the forest to find help for the father after the car they were traveling in careened off the road. Realizing that the idea had greater potential, producer Will Smith and screenwriter Gary Whitta decided to adapt the basic survival concept into a much larger science-fiction project.

Will Smith had wanted to work with director M. Night Shyamalan for several years, but couldn’t find a suitable project. It was Smith who personally hired Shyamalan to direct After Earth. This is the first time in twenty years that director M. Night Shyamalan has accepted a project based on someone else’s screenplay.

Oh damn, our little boy’s all growns up!
