AFTER EARTH 2013
After Earth is a 2013 American science fiction adventure film directed by M. Night Shyamalan, which he co-wrote with Gary Whitta, based on an original story idea by Will Smith. A military father and his teenage son crash land on Earth, one thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity to abandon Earth for a new home planet. The son must save his dying father, by trekking alone across the hostile terrain, encountering highly evolved creatures and a ruthless alien beast along the way. His goal is to recover a rescue-beacon and also prove that he can live up to his father’s reputation as a legendary soldier. It is the second film (the first being The Pursuit of Happyness) that stars real-life father and son Will and Jaden Smith; with Will Smith also producing via his company Overbrook Entertainment and the distribution by Columbia Pictures. The film was released in IMAX and is the first film from Sony Pictures to be both shot and presented in 4K resolution.
