Legendary General Cypher Raige (Will Smith) returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai (Jaden Smith). 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..
This film also stars Zoe Kravitz, who despite being the daughter of famous singer-actor Lenny Kravitz and Cosby kid, Lisa Bonet, has proven she has the talent to make it in Hollywood on her own talent.
After Earth is set to open in June 2013.
