One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai. When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai's craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance.Written by
Producer/co-writer Will Smith envisioned "After Earth" as a multi-platform franchise, including books, graphic novels, and interactive video games, which would all inform on and add to the ideas and concepts already developed in the finished film. See more »
While transporting the Ursa all passengers on the ship are required to wear life suits in case of an emergency but Cypher doesn't take one for himself. While it is established that the character is fearless, just because you are fearless doesn't mean you can't be prepared for emergencies. See more »

The classic Hollywood problem: a colossal budget for the special effects and the actors, with a crap script: it's rough and confusing, with some bewildering and moronic scenes. This movie is obviously a pop corn movie, but a bad one. On the other hand, I do not understand the unjustified avalanche of hatred against Jaden Smith, even if he is very far from Daniel Day Lewis, Cary Grant or Charles Chaplin, he is reasonably credible. Unlike the screenwriters!
