Comic-Con 2012: M. Night Shyamalan's 'After Earth' Promo Video

There's not any actual footage from the movie or any looks at the cast, but it's pretty cool. Although M. Night Shyamalan, Will Smith, and Jaden Smith were apparently too bush to make it to San Diego for Comic-Con this year, Sony still made an effort to get the word out about their upcoming collaboration After Earth. The panel consisted of a lot of behind the scenes footage and video interviews, including one where Shyamalan says he's taking a "documentary"-like approach to the material, about a far-off future Earth. There was also this promo video, which lays out the alternate history that will be explored in the movie. There's not any actual footage from the movie or any looks at the cast, but it's pretty cool. I'll go on the record and say this is the best Facebook-themed movie teaser since The Social Network. (The Playlist)

Just The Two Of Us: Trailer For Will And Jaden Smith In Shyamalan's 'After Earth'

How bad do you want to punch this movie in the face? Not one to be beat at his post-apocalyptic game, Will Smith shows Tom Cruise that there's only one last man on Earth and that man is Will Smith. And if there were to be two last men on Earth, the number two position goes to Jaden Smith. From M. Night Shyamalan, After Earth tells the story of a father and son who crash land on a planet where everything has evolved to kill humans. As the older Smith's General Cypher Raige sits dying in the ship's cockpit, his son Kitai must venture into the strange world to recover the ship's rescue beacon, with only his swag to protect him. At least the marketing team stepped in and revealed the Shyamalan's obvious twist that the pair have crash-landed on Earth in the trailer. Now we're just left to wonder which Smith will awkwardly rap about the film's plot on the movie's soundtrack. To summarize, Jaden Smith is number two.

'Annie' Trailer Shows Willow Smith Enjoying The Benefits Of A Really Rich Dad

I wonder what she's drawing from to convey that? The Annie remake was circulating for a very long time, with most of the cast and producers dropping in and out. With the second trailer having just been released, I think we can assume that it's on its way. We've got Jamie Foxx as "Benjamin Stacks," which is a pretty cool Daddy Warbucks proxy-name. We've got Cameron Diaz playing...someone. And we've got real-life underprivileged orphan Willow Smith playing a character who gets fast-tracked to easy street with a larger than life father figure. It's got something for everyone! Also, as the embed shows, you can Shazam this trailer for additional bonus footage, which is weird, but whatever. Annie hits theaters on December 19th, 2014. Fun for the whole nepotistic family!


'Another Earth' Mostly Focuses On This Earth

It would appear that the NASA in this movie really sucks if they can't find a planet in our solar system. What if there was another Earth in our solar system? That's the question Another Earth addresses in a convoluted fashion. More specifically, the question Another Earth addresses is "What if there was another earth in our solar system and an angsty girl shot in soft light wrote a poem about it, then maybe killed Ethan from "Lost" in a car accident, then played Nintendo Wii with him on the other Earth?" What would you do then, huh? If you answered, "Be a little confused and frustrated that such a great concept is made to look so boring," then you are correct. This film appears as though it doesn't really depend on the whole "there are two Earths" notion, which seems like a waste of a good premise. It's possible the cool parts are hiding, but none came screaming out of Another Earth, the bastard lovechild of Contact and Girl, Interrupted.


Will Smith Goes Full Will Smith In 'Men In Black III' Trailer

Whoa. Whoa. You went too Will Smith, Will Smith. Sadly there's no one to defend the galaxy against Will Smith in the first trailer for Men In Black III. Here we mostly see Smith as Agent J marauding around New York City and giving aliens and humans alike some serious sass. I guess it's important to impress alien enemies with the latest slang before liquefying them with a ray gun. After ten years away from the screen, the MiB are still operating in secret under the nose of John Q. Public. A powerful enemy escapes their holding cell and travels backward in time to kill Agent K and rewrite history. Agent J, being the fan of history that he is, finds a way to jump back in time as well to stop the fiendish plot. This is a pretty vague first look, so let's look forward to a longer, more plot-driven trailer. In other words, let's see Alice Eve in some tiny 1960's dresses.


Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’ Teaser Looks Like A Rob Zombie Movie

Why did Kevin Smith film this with a buttcam? This first look at Kevin Smith's Red State seems like a real departure for the director. It's gritty with it's muted colors and low-tech imagery. The camera work itself is a big departure for Smith, whose primarily known for not employing a lot of movement in his shots. Though it's used to perfect effect here, ratcheting up the terror by towing the audience along for the gruesome horror. Also, there's no orangutan.


Kevin Smith Scares You With ‘Red State’ Teaser and ‘Jersey Girl’ Joke

You can see a few bits of John Goodman in this 'Red State' teaser, the way he looks in my "Roseanne" nightmares. What's more frightening than Kevin Smith's upcoming horror movie Red State? His mediocre attempts at self-deprecating humor. Remember when he complained about being too fat for that airplane, you guys? Cause I forgot all about it a long time ago. However, I'm gonna cut the director some slack, cause he's probably out of breath from (lightly) exercising, getting in shape to run around the country and plug his new movie into any theater that'll screen it. Not-so-Silent Bob's intro notwithstanding, the teaser itself is very tense and effective. You can see a few bits of John Goodman the way he looks in my "Roseanne" nightmares - stern and viewed through a shaky lens. The film also stars Kevin Pollack and Stephen Root. The Red State tour starts March 5th. (Cinema Blend,
