A new trailer surfaced this week for M. Night Shyamalan’s new sci-fi thriller After Earth starring father and son duo Will and Jaden Smith.
As previous reported, Jaden plays Kitai, a 13-year-old ranger who is returning home with his father General Cypher Raige, played by Will Smith, when an asteroid hits their air craft and forces them to crash land on a planet that was evacuated by humans 1000 years earlier.
What we didn’t know before was that Jaden’s mother and Will’s wife, played by noted British actress Sophie Okonedo, encouraged the mission, telling the General to “go make some good memories together” with is son Kitai.
Fast forward, that the two get stranded on Earth, where Kitai sets out on a thrilling adventure to recover their rescue beacon while fending off alien form that escaped from the crash. Along the way, Kitai also encounters some pretty evolved animals including a brood of savage baboons and mammoth-sized eagles and lions.
