Originally, all we new of 1000 A.E. was the following:  After a crash landing, a father and son explore a planet that was evacuated by humans 1,000 years earlier.

Thanks to IndieWire’s Shadow and Act, we now have the full synopsis of father/son Will Smith and Jaden Smith’s sci-fi adventure, 1000 A.E., now called After Earth’!  The film’s synopsis reads:

In After Earth, one thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind’s new home.  Legendary General Cypher Raige (played by 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 (played by Jaden Smith).  When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai’s craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth.  As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon.  His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father.  Today, he gets his chance.
