Well, it would seem that 2013 is shaping up to be quite the year of science fiction movie releases with two really big names seeing releases. A couple of days ago we shared the “official” trailer for Tom Cruise’s new movie Oblivion and now today we have a trailer for Will Smith’s movie After Earth hitting the web.
Both movies are sporting some pretty lush images of the earth as one of the main characters in the movies but with After Earth the animals (and aliens?) has evolved making the planet a very dangerous place to try and survive.
The movie stars Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith and is hitting theaters on June 7th, 2013. Here’s a bit of a synopsis for the movie courtesy of FirstShowing.net:
1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime is mankind’s new home. General Cypher Raige (Will Smith) returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai (Jaden Smith). When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai’s craft, they crash-land on a now dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the planet to recover their rescue beacon. M. Night Shyamalan directs After Earth wrote it with Stephen Gaghan (Traffic) and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli)
