We have to fight together to survive this new TV spot and high res images for AFTER EARTH

1108146 - After Earth

I’m trying my very best not to get excited for After Earth. After having a rather brilliant start to his career, M. Night Shyamalan then pulled a meta plot twist of epic proportions and ended up making one stinker after another. And now he’s back with After Earth, the sci-fi vehicle starring the Smiths, Will and Jaden, and judging from this new TV spot it looks good!

I don’t want it to look good though, because then when it inevitably gets revealed that this future Earth is just some kind of really dedicated cosplay or that the trees are actually the bad guys, I won’t be one of the idiots sitting in the cinema, once again cursing the name of M. Night Sharlem-Shake*.

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.

Is it just me and my crappy laptop speakers, or does that not sound a damn thing like Will Smith talking? I know it’s supposed to be him, because he refers to his “son” but the voice is completely wrong. Sounds more like Gareth Cliff doing a Will Smith impersonation rather than the Fresh Prince himself.

And now that you’ve given your ears a work out by listening to that voice-over over and over again, how about you get your eyeballs in on the action as well, with some seriously big high-res images from the movie.

After Earth will be crash landing in cinemas on May 31, 2013.

*Yes, I know that’s not his real name, but it’s a running gag around here to always come up with a new version of it.

About The Author

Hello ladies. Look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped watching horrible Michael Bay movies, he could be as much of a hardcore film geek as me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a South African movie blog with the man your man could be as big a film geek as. What’s in your hand? Back at me. I have it. It’s a warm box of freshly popped popcorn, butter melted awesomeness wafting in your face just like you like. Look again, the popcorn is now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man stops watching Michael Bay movies. I’m on a horse.
