First trailer for After Earth starring Will and Jaden Smith: watch now

The first trailer has arrived for M. Night Shyamalan’s sci-fi drama After Earth , in which Will and Jaden Smith crash-land on a hostile planet full of dangerous predators.

As the older Smith comments ominously, “Everything on this planet has evolved to kill humans”, before sending his boy off into the wild to return with sustenance. He’s banged his leg up you see, otherwise he’d go himself…

However, this being a Shyamalan joint, there’s even a twist in the tail of the trailer, as evidenced when the father asks of his son, “Do you know where we are?” If you haven’t already guessed, we won’t spoil it for you.

Take a look, below:

Shyamalan’s recent track record has been dodgy to say the least, but from the lush visuals we’ve seen here, we’re hopeful this could be the film to arrest the slump. And the chemistry between the two leads should be decent at the very least.

Co-starring Zoë Kravitz, Sophie Okonedo and Isabelle Fuhrman, After Earth will open in the UK on 7 June 2013.
