It’s no secret I’m a science fiction fan, but the thing I’m most excited about in this movie is the father/son dynamic – an “Adventures by Daddy” if I’ve ever seen one.  The film is centered around a father and son navigating a strange, futuristic world. Cast in the lead roles for AFTER EARTH are actor Will Smith and his real-life son, Jaden Smith.  Brilliant!  This is not the first time Will and Jaden Smith have appeared on screen together, they also portrayed father and son in 2006’s The Pursuit of Happyness.  What a wonderful way to bond, grow, and share with each other as a family – nice work if you can get it.

Sony Pictures released the first teaser trailer for AFTER EARTH – in theaters June 7, 2013.
