One of the big question marks amongst next summer’s movies is the M. Night Shyamalan directed After Earth, and the question is which Shyamalan will show up, the one that made The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable or the one that made Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender?
Now After Earth does have some things going for it off the top. First is that Shyamalan got help on the screenplay from the likes of Stephen Gaghan (Traffic) and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli), and secondly you’ve got the real-life father/son team of Will Smith and Jaden Smith headlining the film. The look of the film in the below trailer seems pretty epic, and I like the idea that post-apocalyptic Earth evolves to seemingly hate humans, so hopefully this is Shyamalan’s comeback, or at least not a total fuster cluck.
Check out the trailer below:
What do you think Bastards? Will to give this a try next summer?
