The good folks over at Shadow And Act posted the first trailer for Will and Jaden Smith’s new movie, After Earth. If you haven’t heard of it, After Earth, directed by M. Night Shyamalan, is about an earth that has been torn up by apocalyptic events, causing its inhabitants to move to a new home/planet called Nova Prime. Will Smith plays General Cypher Raige, and Jaden stars as Kitai Rage, a father and son team fighting to survive after Nova Prime is attacked and they find themselves having to return to Earth, which is inhabited my a whole slew of creatures and mess. When Cypher gets hurt, it is up to his son to rescue them and be the soldier that he’s always wanted to be in the eyes of his father.

Sounds hella deep right? And after watching the trailer, things get more and more complex. As Cypher (once again, Will Smith) explains to his son the importance of knowing that while danger is real, fear is a choice, Jaden is jumping off of cliffs, flying around, fighting off angry monkeys and pulling out a sick sword to help him combat all the CGI-created threats. On an interesting side note, Lenny’s daughter Zoe Kravitz plays Cypher’s daughter, and the very underrrated Sophie Okonedo plays his wife. Definitely looks and sounds interesting. Now will I pay $13 to see it when it drops next summer? Hmm…I’ll need to see a few more trailers and try and get over this accent Big Willie is trying to tote before I can give you a definite yes or no. But what about you? What do you think of the trailer?

    Are they using a Southern dialect? Um…..maybe pay-per-view. Looks interesting, though.

    Does the oldest do any acting?

    sounds cool, but M. Night Shyamalan, anything he touches turns to poop, literally!

    On a positive note its great to see Jaden continuing his journey with his acting career and play in a movie with his dad Will. I really liked Jaden in the Karate Kid movie. Jaden look so much like Will to me and giving dad alittle run for his money with the action movies. I am undecided about whether or not I will see this movie because it don’t seem too interesting to me (I have been wrong about some movies in the past). However I wish them both success with the movies.
