After Earth First Trailer

After Earth Trailer: Will and Jaden Smith Go Post-Apocalyptic

After Earth, director M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming post-apocalyptic film, is a father-and-son story, starring real-life father and son Will Smith and Jaden Smith. The two are left to fend for themselves when their spaceship crash-lands onto a mostly deserted planet Earth, which has been human-free for a thousand years.

There are two things that really caught my attention in this trailer: the first is Will Smith's strange, vaguely Southern accent that we hear as he narrates over the imagery of a lush, jungle-like version of our planet. The second is how much Jaden Smith has grown up. The adorable kid from The Pursuit of Happynessis a full-fledged teenager now, and I'm looking forward to seeing if he's inherited his father's action-star capabilities. We'll have to wait until June 6 to find out — another bonus: Lincoln Lewis co-stars! We're yet to have a glimpse of him — but until then, check out the preview when you read more.
