Thanks to JoBlo, we now have the first official synopsis for M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming film After Earth, starring the Fresh Prince himself Will Smith and his son, Jaden Smith. Downside? We can't say we're too impressed. Upside? This will probably be better than The Happening.
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.
General Cypher Raige. On second thought, nevermind, maybe this won't be better than The Happening.
