Well, this isn't exactly a warm father-son moment.

After Earth, the new sci-fi epic co-written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan and starring Will Smith and his son Jaden, hits theaters in just a few weeks, and the filmmakers have finally released a clip. In it, Cypher Raige (Will Smith) tasks his son Kitai (Jaden Smith) with retrieving a beacon from their crashed ship, which is somewhere in the threat-filled wilderness of a future Earth that's long been abandoned by humans. It's an important task, and a dangerous one, but as you'll see below, Kitai is getting no coddling from Cypher.

After Earth hits theaters May 31. What do you think? Is this flick on your must-watch list?
