Jaden Smith strikes a pose in a futuristic costume designed by Amy Westcott (Black Swan) for M. Night Shyamalan‘s forthcoming sci-fi space epic After Earth.

The actor joins his father, Will Smith, in the new sci-fi thriller about a father and son who crash-land on Earth one thousand years after mankind has abandoned the planet. The crash leaves the elder Smith badly injured, and it’s up to the boy to find help in what is now a strange and dangerous place.

Shyamalan says his goal was to make this film work as a stage play about a broken family, noting Jaden’s “tangible” on-screen charisma.

After Earth was filmed in multiple locations, including Costa Rica, and the mountains of Utah. The film is scheduled to be released in theaters on Jun. 7, 2013.
