After Earth Trailer: Will and Jaden Smith Go Postapocalyptic

If you didn't get your postapocalyptic fix for the week from the Oblivion trailer, perhaps this first preview for M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth will do the trick. This one's a father-and-son story, starring real-life father and son Will Smith and Jaden Smith. The two are left to fend for themselves when their spaceship crash-lands onto a mostly deserted planet Earth, which has been human-free for a thousand years.

There are two things that really caught my attention in this trailer: the first is Will Smith's strange, vaguely Southern accent that we hear as he narrates over the imagery of a lush, jungle-like version of our planet. The second is how much Jaden Smith has grown up. The adorable kid from The Pursuit of Happyness is a full-fledged teenager now, and I'm looking forward to seeing if he's inherited his father's action-star capabilities. We'll have to wait until next Summer to find out, but until then, check out the preview when you read more.
