New trailer and poster for After Earth: watch now

M Night Shyamalan's After Earth has released a new poster alongside a brand new trailer in which Will and Jaden Smith find themselves marooned on a hostile planet.

Well, we say a hostile planet… this is Earth! But not as we know it, because in this post-apocalyptic version, "everything has evolved to kill humans". Bummer.

Thankfully, Smith Jr. is playing a resourceful sort of fellow, and it isn't long before he's facing up to his destiny, cutting the apron strings and generally getting his hero on.

Take a look, below…

Plenty of new material to get your teeth into there, and there's a new poster too, using Smith Sr.'s pep talk as its tag line. "Danger is real… fear is a choice." Even as we speak, somebody's getting that printed on a T-shirt…

Directed by Shyamalan and co-starring Zoe Kravitz, Sophie Okonedo and Isabelle Fuhrman, After Earth will open in the UK on 7 June 2013.

George is GR's resident movie news person, based out of London. He understands that all men must die, but he'd rather not think about it.
