Planning on going to the movies this weekend? If you're in the mood for a futuristic action flick, go with After Earth, starring Will and Jaden Smith.

Will Smith and son Jaden team up for After Earth, a formulaic sci-fi film infused with some tender father-son moments. Though loaded with impressive special effects, the main draw to the film is seeing both Smiths on screen together, but that time is limited. Commander Cypher Raige (Will Smith) returns from a mission to find that his ambitious son Kitai (Jaden Smith) has become withdrawn, frustrated that he's failed to earn a spot in their planet's soldier forces. Struggling to find common ground, the stoic Cypher invites Kitai on a routine training trip, but when their ship crash-lands on Earth, they must depend on each other (as the only survivors) to get back home. It's a little too convenient a premise, but that's only one of the film's elements that lacks originality.
So, what's wrong with Earth? It's been 1,000 years since the human race was forced to abandon the planet, which had begun deteriorating due to extreme pollution. Now, everything from the animals to the plants to the weather has adapted to kill humans. With Cypher wounded, Kitai must travel alone to retrieve a rescue beacon, but the video-game-like obstacles that stack up in his path are way too contrived to be taken seriously. Examples: he must carefully moderate his specialized oxygen capsules, the ground freezes at night, so he needs to make it to certain hot spots before nightfall, and, oh right, there's a monster on the loose that can literally smell fear. These are all the elements of a successful action movie, yet the film lacks heart and feels more like the introduction to a series (a sequel is already rumored to be in the works) rather than a stand-alone film. To find out more of what I thought of After Earth, just read more.
Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith's After Earth premiere was a family affair in NYC last night. The father-son duo had the support of their loved ones Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith, and Trey Smith for the star-studded debut. Along with having his siblings and parents, Jaden's rumored girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, also hit the red carpet, as did 50 Cent, Bruce Willis and his wife, Emma Heming, Spike Lee, and even astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Jaden's pal Justin Bieber skipped the red carpet, preferring instead to make a low-key entrance directly into the Zeigfeld Theater. Will and Jaden's futuristic film hits the big screen tomorrow — find out if you should rush to theaters to see the Smiths after checking out our After Earth review.
While Jaden's close with Kylie Jenner and her Kardashian relatives, his dad, Will, doesn't appear to be a fan of Kim and company. When asked about the parallels between the Kardashians and the Smiths, Will said the families deal with the limelight differently. He commented, "We are trying to put great things into the world, we're trying to have fun, and we're trying to become the greatest versions of ourselves in the process of doing things we love. So the idea of fame or exploitation or orchestrating the media is sometimes even less than desirable for us."
Selena Gomez got involved in a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion in London last night when she and Jaden Smith grabbed dinner with Will Smith and his former costars DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton. Selena and Jaden joined Will and his group for a bite to eat at the Hakkasan restaurant before they all headed over to the Boujis nightclub to watch Will's older son, Trey Smith, do a DJ set. According to reports, Jaden was denied entry into the club because he is underage. This isn't the first time that Jaden has been excluded from a club for being too young — he had to ditch friend Justin Bieber's birthday party earlier this year after a London club kicked him out after they found out he is 14 years old. The scene reportedly caused Justin to label his special day as "the worst birthday ever."
Selena, Jaden, and Will met up after they all visited The Graham Norton Show yesterday to tape an interview alongside Michael Douglas and Hangover III stars Bradley Cooper and Heather Graham. Selena tweeted this morning about the episode, which will air in the UK today, saying, "Thanks Graham Norton and everyone at The Graham Norton Show for having me on your show! Had such a good time with everyone."
At 14, Jaden Smith has already made two feature films with his father, Will Smith, and recently I sat down with the young actor to discuss their latest, After Earth. Jaden dished on his favorite part about working with his dad — "he's like a big, black Yoda" — and the actress he'd love to work with. Take a look before the movie hits theaters on May 31!
Will and Jaden Smith team up in the futuristic sci-fi film After Earth, and we recently got the chance to talk shop with Smith Sr. The self-proclaimed "gregarious" star told me about the challenges of playing a seriously injured character for nearly an entire movie, being an onscreen father (again!) to his real-life son, and why he almost had to learn Chinese for the role. Take a look before the film comes out on May 31!
