New 'After Earth' Trailer Plays up the Father-Son Side of the Conflict
The first After Earth trailer was surprisingly well crafted, and actually got me interested in an M. Night Shyamalan film. This latest one is a solid piece of work as well, helping to set up the relationship between Will and Jaden's Smith's characters, as well as giving us a few more peeks at a post-humanity Earth. I'm keeping my expectations in check, mostly because of The Last Airbender, but count me intrigued. Check out the trailer below.
After Earth hits theaters on June 7.
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.
