Honest Trailers: 'After Earth'

'Nepotism: The Movie' If you can't make fun of Will Smith and his weirdly-named kids, then who can you make fun of. After Earth is a sort-of post-apocalyptic survival film, but mostly it's just Will Smith holding up his child and saying, "Look at my beautiful bay-bee!" or the cinematic equivalent thereof. Time to take those two down a peg.

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.


'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.


Nic Cage Is One Of The Last Men On Earth In The Trailer For 'Left Behind'

I have always thought of Nicolas Cage as the quintessential Christian messenger. If the name of the film sounds vaguely familiar, you might remember Left Behind as a 16-part straight-to-DVD series that starred none other than Kirk Cameron. Also germane is the fact that it was a VERY Christian film about the rapture. Rapture entertainment is incredibly hot right now. The new, more theatrical, Nic Cage-starring version is also VERY Christian, considering it's got the same source material, but it's a little less heavy-handed with the pro-Christian messaging. And the production values are much higher, which makes it seem like less of a Christianity promo film. And it's got Nicolas Cage, who has been in a battle with the spirit of Jesus Christ in a holy war for humankind for 2,000 years. That last bit is just a theory I'm working on. It's up to Cage to disprove it. Here's the trailer. Hope you like it. When choosing a savior, the producers of the film strongly suggest you check the box marked "Jesus."


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)
