‘After Earth’ Trailer #2: Will Smith, Jaden Smith and Sophie Okonedo plan a family voyage
The full-length second trailer for Columbia’s sci-fi actioner After Earth has debuted online and it looks pretty sick.
The new trailer features Jaden Smith as Kitai, a futuristic “Ranger,” along with his dad, Cypher (Will Smith), as the two set out on an interplanetary excursion that goes horribly wrong. The trailer also features new footage and provides us with a first look at Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) in her role as the family matriarch.
Co-written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, After Earth tells the story of the bond a father and son share after they crash land on the now-abandoned Earth 1000 years after humans fled the dangerous planet.
The official film synopsis reads:
A crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash. Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home.
After Earth opens in theaters everywhere on June 7.
