International 'After Earth' Poster Puts World Inside Will & Jaden Smith
We've seen the thrilling second trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth, and thus far, Jaden Smith looks like he might pull off this action sci-fi tentpole as he takes the lead role alongside his father Will Smith. Though it doesn't look all that mindblowing, the visuals are pretty great, and there seems to be some solid set pieces for promising action. We've still got a few months until the film arrives in theaters on June 7th, and now an international poster has arrived to raise awareness around the world. This one has to use the Smith family, and uses a familiar poster trope to place a better visual inside their silhouette. Look!
Here's the international poster for M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth via ComingSoon:
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.

This kind of sounds like a modern day retelling of Hatchet.

It's amazing how a powerful and versatile tool like Photoshop can produce dross like this.

In the trailer, doesn't Will's character get sucked out of their spacecraft? I am thinking he dies, then we see his son go to memories or some sort of playback of his dad to learn 'how-to' survive on Earth.

"Fear is a choice" Idiotic.Who the fu¢k chooses to fear? It's like saying "Feeling cold is a choice" You feel fear or you don't.You can choose to give in to fear when you feel afraid,but it's not really choosing ,it's loosing control. The one thing you can choose with fear is to fight the urge to give in.This is usually what real courage is.Being afraid but not giving in or giving up.You feel fear but you still do your job or whatever the hell needs to be done which makes you feel afraid. I know that's what they were going for with this slogan but it's still stupid.Also crazy nitpicking 😛
