Another Cool Photo of Jaden Smith in Full Costume for 'After Earth'

After Earth

We've already higlighted snaps from the set of M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi flick After Earth with Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith, but we've yet to really get an idea of the film's style. Thankfully, a new photo from the younger Smith himself (who is looking more like his father all the time), gives us an idea with Jaden in a futuristic body suit. It's a cool design, and while the comparison might be insulting due to the quality of the film I'm about to mention, the suit is reminiscent of the costumes worn by the Robinson family in Lost in Space back in 1998. The need for the suit isn't really clear, but you can check it out below.

Here's the photo of Jaden Smith in After Earth from the actor's WhoSay page via SlashFilm:

After Earth - Jaden Smith

The current logline for After Earth is: "After a crash landing, a father and son explore an alien planet." M. Night Shyamalan and screenwriter Gary Whitta have been tweeting about its production, with photos and updates along the way. Word is that the story is about what happens when these two crash land on Earth "one thousand years after humans abandoned it." Shooting is underway now, with Columbia Pictures aiming for a June 7th, 2013 release. If you're interested, follow @mnightshyamalan or @GaryWhitta for more.

    Wow, he really does look like his dad! I guess the idea for the story came from watching an episode of Life After People. The fact that Wil Smith liked the script enough to be in it bodes well for Shyamalan.

    Shyamalan directing the film puts me off a bit but i don't think Will Smith would let a horrible movie come out if he didn't approve it first. It will be ineresting to see a trailer though

      The Body Suit reminds me of the Borg.

          Pffffff. More Hollywood nepotism. For some reason it's acceptable there, but nowhere else.
  • Chris Batty
    BAHAHAHA. That looks ridiculous. 
  • Mr. Tibbs
    Gotta be honest...I've hated this kid since he was useless and irritating in The Day the Earth Stood Still.
  • O'Ryan
    Wild Wild West, Men in Black 2, I Robot, Hancock and now After Earth. All are failed movies by Smith.
    • All awesoooome fillums, Wickyly Wil' Wil' Westenberg has robot spiders in it!

        aw man the name didnt change.....

      Failed movies you say.  Really?  Let's have a look shall we? Men in Black 2: $235,200,000 Worldwide (IMDB) I Robot: $347,234,916 Worldwide (IMDB)   Hancock:  $624,386,746 Worlwide (IMDB) That works out to just over $1.2 Billion in box office and that's not counting DVD and Blu Ray sales.   The cost of making the three movies total at $410 million.  So, that still leaves about $800,000 in the bank at the box office and once again that's not counting Blu Ray and DVD sales. Not enough money for you huh? Episodes 1, 2 and 3 of Star Wars have been called failed movies by people like you as well, but looking at the 'BILLIONS' that those three movies alone have made and continue to make at the box office and will make in the future as well as DVD and Blu ray sales, many millions of people around the world disagree.  Yes, in your opinion theyt all may be failed movies, but that's just one man's opinion.  The numbers speak for themselves; someone has to be liking them.  And yes, Greedo did shoot first.
      • Solo_Calrissian
        Totally with you.  Smith's last 5 movies grossed roughly $2Billion in the box office alone.  People flock to see him.  I like him.  Is it a vocal minority who cant stand him or his movies?   ...Btw Han Shot first, Jabba's a huge puppet (not CGI) and Boba Fett didn't have a kiwi accent. from a certain point of view of course 😉

         I think he was referring to a failure in artistic integrity, but I'm sure you knew that. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the financial success of those movies was in no small part due to his involvement, he' a big draw. Also, box office receipts don't reflect the hordes of people who adidmently hated a movie after seeing it. If anything the box office receipts show how well a movie was advertised. I actually liked I robot

    No one cares about any of the smiths. Lets not start now.
    • Xerxexx
       Well Will Smith as been in some decent films and lets not forget Fresh Prince of Bel-Air...Seven Pounds was good, Pursuit of Happyness was great and Hancock had some good dramatic moments.
  • Angelfigueroa81
    i liked lost in space and considering this is a m night movie we have yet to see who the insult lies upon.
  • ur_babys_daddy
    If it looks promising, ill give a chance.
  • unhappy camper
  • esophus
    Still suit.
  • Al
    Makes me think more of David Lynch's "Dune" than "Lost in Space"
    • Blasphemy. There will never be another Dune!
      • Jericho
        because Dune sucked
  • I really hate the fact that they have to keep reminding us that he's Will Smith's son, it's like does he not have his own personality to make a name for himself? Will he ever be anything else/more than just that? I don't know it's just silly to me..
    • Richie G
       I'm sure he'll escape that association when he grows up. He's still just a kid
  • Max Renn
    Nepotism and a horrible director. What could go wrong.
  • germss
    I'm sure Hollywood is ecstatic that they have a younger Will Smith clone on their hands. 
  • Richie G
    I'll be waiting on a good review from Jeremy. I want Shamalamadingdong to be back on form, I liked Unbreakable, but I haven't seen one of his movies since The Village. Fool me twice 'n all that
  • Jaden Smith's costume is very cool. Too bad we have to wait until June next year to see the full movie. 
  • Webceo12
    I really don’t know what to think of this. I guess it’s a good thing that M. Night has decided to work with a script that is not his own but there is enough to still be weary about. The Village will always be the weirdest cinema experiences I ever had. The slow grumble that started about half way through as people started to guess the ending was something I’ve never experienced before and haven’t since. And then when it ended people were booing and cursing at the screen. I know that’s not a unique experience for some people but in the small Connecticut town I’m from that never happens. If you are interested there is a fansite created at
  • looks good, I can't see will or jada letting him do a obviously bad idea movie, I mean before ppl saw the trailer to karate kid they thought it wasn't gonna be good since jackie does a bunch of kiddie-aimed movies now (spy next door/the medallion etc) and jaden's actin wasn't really expressed in the pursuit of happiness or day the earth stood still, yet it was a total hit. He's also damn cute, gonna be a total heart breaker. M. Night...I must be one of the few who appreciates all his movies to some degree. is the movie based on a comic, or book b/c so long as it's not he has a pretty good shot at pleasing the audience. I'm just happy the costume looks intricate and not slapped on, like a bad super hero costume. Can't wait for more I guess
  • Mimina_chicacool
