Will Smith stars in M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi thriller as a father who treats his son like a soldier
Will Smith has two objectives after crash landing on our planet 1000 years in the future in "After Earth": 1.) Survive 2.) Lighten up.
"You have a son that you do not know," Sophie Okonedo, the actress who plays Smith's wife, says. "He's reaching for you and he does not need a commanding officer. He needs a father. Now go make some good memories together."
But as it turns out, Smith couldn't have picked a worse time to start the father-son bonding. Their intergalactic flight goes terribly wrong and those "good memories" turn into a nightmare filled with pesky monkeys, sabertooth tigers, giant eagles and a creature more dangerous than all three of those animals combined.
"After Earth" lands in theaters on June 7.
