Watch: First TV Spot for Sci-Fi 'After Earth' Teases Huge Creatures
"Son, do you know where we are? This is Earth." As far as I can tell, I'm one of the few still excited for this sci-fi movie After Earth, but I think it looks cool and is a unique idea. Thanks to the MTV Movie Awards tonight, a new TV spot has just appeared for M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth, co-written by Gary Whitta, starring Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith. We've seen a couple of full trailers already and have an idea of what to expect with this, but they're finally showing one of the big bug-alien creatures in this (above), and I'm more than intrigued. What in the heck is that? Looking forward to finding out this summer.
Here's the first 30-second TV spot for M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth, uploaded on YouTube:
1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime is mankind’s new home. General Cypher Raige (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 (Jaden Smith). When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai’s craft, they crash-land on a now dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the planet to recover their rescue beacon. M. Night Shyamalan (Unbreakable, Signs, The Village, The Happening) directs After Earth from a script he co-wrote with Stephen Gaghan (Traffic) and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli). Sony Pictures will release After Earth in theaters on June 7th this summer.
