If you were wondering just how hard sci-fi the new Will Smith action flick After Earth will be, wonder no more.
The new trailer is here, and it looks to be a sci-fi FX spectacle with everything from an epic spaceship crash to some cool set pieces to alien creatures and big tech MacGuffins.
In addition to a ton of action, the latest trailer also sets up the story of the Will and Jaden Smith flick. The father-son duo crash-land on Earth 1,000 years after humanity has abandoned the planet to the wild, and have to fight for survival in search of the ship’s lost beacon. It looks like a nice, personal story packed in a big-budget package.
Much like the upcoming Tom Cruise tentpole Oblivion, it could be a unique sci-fi tale that should make for a great 2013. If they manage to pull it off, it could be stellar.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:
Here is my prediction: Will Smith's Character dies in the plane crash and his "spirit" guides his son to become the man he should be and also heal their relationship. He'll live and learn a valuable lesson and learn in the end that his father was always dead.
