Just how good was M. Night Shyamalan’s early work? Certainly groundbreaking, when you consider the brave decisions in his writing and directing. From THE SIXTH SENSE, UNBREAKABLE, SIGNS and even the underrated THE VILLAGE to some extent, Shyamalan created a genre all of his own. Still, everything since has been, well, to put it simply – crap! He could have filmed a dog curling one out the pavement and it would have been more engrossing than Mark Wahlberg talking to plants in THE HAPPENING.
Hopefully, his Will Smith and son Jaden-led sci-fier AFTER EARTH will see him back on form with the story of a father and son who crash land on a decimated Earth, who then explore the planet that was evacuated by humans 1,000 years earlier. The recent trailer looked visually stunning, so fingers crossed the film on the whole, impresses come its release 7th June 2013.
Meanwhile, the movie’s official website has launched over at afterearth.com, where you can explore the futuristic world of AFTER EARTH.
