Will Smith and son Jaden are back together playing father and son in the postapocalyptic thriller After Earth. Though we'd been introduced to crash survivors Cypher (Will Smith) and Kitai (Jaden Smith) in the teaser for After Earth, this new trailer provides a lot more of the background. Cypher is a ranger — a member of the elite special forces — and Kitai is in training when their mission crash-lands on Earth. Humans have long since abandoned the planet, which now houses creatures that have adapted to kill humans. Cypher must teach Kitai not to feel fear, as the creatures can sense the pheromones.
After Earth comes from writer/director M. Night Shyamalan, and since it's been a while since the filmmaker has blown away audiences with a good twist, I've got my fingers crossed that he's got some tricks up his sleeve. I'm also really looking forward to seeing the Smiths together on screen again (seven years after The Pursuit of Happyness), and what we'll be encountering on this altered planet. The movie is set for a June 7 release, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
