M. Night Shyamalan is going sci-fi. The director's reunited Will and Jaden Smith for the futuristic After Earth. The father-son duo brave the wilderness in the first trailer for the summer blockbuster.
The film takes place 1,000 years after a cataclysmic event forces mankind to leave Earth. They go on to create a new home called Nova Prime. Will Smith stars as General Cypher Raige (yes, that's his real name), who returns to an estranged family after an extended tour of duty. His relationship with his teenage son Kitai (Jaden Smith) is cordial at best.
When Cypher and Kitai's aircraft is damaged during an asteroid storm, they crash-land in unfamiliar territory. Cypher is seriously injured, and it's up to Kitai to trek across the land to find their rescue beacon. They're on a unknown planet filled with strange and hostile creatures.
Oh, what's this planet called? Earth.
After Earth opens in theaters June 7, 2013.
