Will Smith proved he is still a box-office draw after Men in Black III grossed nearly $600 million dollars worldwide. M Night Shyamalan on the other hand, has some serious work to do. M Night will try and break his cold streak by teaming Smith with his son Jaden for the sci-fi pic titled After Earth. The film is set to hit theaters June 7th, 2013 and there will be a panel held at this year’s Comic-Con. The first detailed synopsis from the film has me thinking this could be another M Night bomb . . .
“In After Earth, one thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind’s new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige (played by 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 (played by Jaden Smith). When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai’s craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance.”
