We get to see much more of Will and Jaden Smith's father-son relationship in the new trailer for their summer sci-fi adventure After Earth from M. Night Shyamalan -- and we have a first look!
Set 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, the coming-of-age movie finds frustrated teen Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on terra firma after their ship crash lands.
With the ship's signal in the tail section their only hope of rescue, the critically injured Cypher and untested Kitai must learn to work together and trust one another as they embark on a perilous journey facing hostile terrain, evolved animal species and an unstoppable alien that escaped during the crash.
Featuring cool effects and an age-old father-son bonding theme, perhaps the biggest obstacle viewers will have to overcome is getting used to the odd dialect coming from the Smiths' mouths. After Earth Crash lands in theaters June 7.
