Some of the trailers for The Last Airbender looked good and we all know how that turned out, so I’ll approach this movie with caution. The CGI in this trailer is not quite there yet, but the concept and father/son story will hopefully make After Earth another intriguing sci-fi movie to look out for in 2013.
Watch the trailer below:
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.
After Earth will be released June 7, 2013 and also stars Zoë Kravitz, Sophie Okonedo, and Isabelle Fuhrman.
