First Look: Shyamalan's After Earth

August 24, 2012 14:35 IST

Jaden Smith in After EarthThe first look of M Night Shyamalan's next film After Earth is out.

Featuring Will Smith and his son Jaden (above), the sci-fi adventure will release on June 7, 2013.

The story -- written by Will Smith himself -- goes like this: One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige (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 (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.

Will Shyamalan have a winner on his hands with this one? Let's wait and watch.
