With the June release of Columbia Pictures’ sci-fi adventure film After Earth approaching, we should probably anticipate seeing a bit more from the film on the promotion front in the coming months.
This week, that includes a new trailer, which is set to arrive today. In anticipation of that, some new stills from the film have made their way online, showing us stars Will and Jaden Smith.
Written by Gary Whitta and M. Night Shyamalan, with Shyamalan at the helm, After Earth is set a thousand years after humanity was forced to abandon Earth. When Jaden Smith’s Kitai Raige and his father Cypher (Will Smith) crash-land on Earth, the younger of the two must face the evolved animal species, uncharted terrain and “an unstoppable alien creature” in his efforts to find a way to get himself and his injured father off the planet.
He’s holding a weapon that’s either similar to his son’s cutlass (the bo-staff-like weapon he carries), or it’s the same weapon. But since the Cutlass is said to be a Ranger’s greatest weapon, it seems likely that Cypher has his own. Perhaps we’ll have a better idea of how the above scene fits into the story when the trailer arrives.
After Earth arrives in theaters June 7.
