When your big budget science fiction movie with a summer release date just so happens to feature a significant chunk of one of Hollywood's most powerful dynasties, you don't hide it. You put it front and center. Two new international posters for the upcoming 'After Earth' represent a marketing department that is well aware of this fact: both of them are only interested in doing on thing and that's letting you know that Will Smith and Jaden Smith are the stars.
'After Earth' just debuted a new poster, which points out that you can tell that the summer movie season is right around the corner. Of late, we're getting more and more glimpses at the big films. And when you bring together M. Night Shyamalan, Will Smith and son Jaden Smith, you're talking about one of the biggest movies of the season.
A crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige and his legendary father Cypher stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help.
A new poster for next year's science fiction epic 'After Earth' has emerged and our first thought is that it looks a heckuva lot like the poster for 'Oblivion,' another sci-fi epic hitting theaters next year. The similarities don't end there -- both films are headlined by major movie stars, both are helmed by directors who really need a hit and both take place on desolated future versions of Earth. But enough of that! Check out the poster below!
Will Smith is back starring with his son, Jaden Smith, in 'After Earth' an upcoming sci-fi adventure film from director M. Night Shyamalan. We've seen Big Willie get jiggy with it in space plenty of times before but can Jaden follow in his Dad's footsteps and be a sci-fi superstar? Let's watch the 'After Earth' trailer and find out.
Here's the key to selling a movie pitch: take something everyone is familiar with, but add vampires. At least that's what it feels like these days. Anyway, it sure worked for 'The Redemption of Cain,' Will Smith's upcoming biblical/vampire epic, which has been given the official go-ahead from Sony.
Biblical stories seem to be the it thing right now. With Darren Aronofsky working on 'Noah' and Paul Verhoeven gearing up for 'Jesus of Nazareth,' the Bible is certainly being tapped for its wealth of stories. The latest? Will Smith is eyeing the story of Cain and Abel for his first directing gig.
