There is no denying M. Night Shyamalan has had a bad run of directing efforts over recent years. After dropping jaws with spectacular twist finales in the likes of THE SIXTH SENSE, UNBREAKABLE, SIGNS and THE VILLAGE, Shyamalan’s box-office clout has dwindled significantly of late. After a string of duds – LADY IN THE WATER, THE HAPPENING and THE LAST AIRBENDER – film fans will be hoping his Will Smith led sci-fi epic AFTER EARTH will see the director back on top form.

A few days ago some images circled the net, showing Will Smith on the Costa Rican set, nothing major, more crew than anything else. However, here we have the first image of Smith’s son and co-star Jaden in costume, coming from the young star himself.

AFTER EARTH is due in cinemas 7th June 2013 and joining Will and Jaden Smith will be, Sophie Okonedo, Zoe Kravitz, Isabelle Fuhrman and David Denman.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
