M Night Shyamalan's 'After Earth' reveals full synopsis

By
Jaden Smith in 'After Earth'
M Night Shyamalan's new film After Earth has released a synopsis.

Released by JoBlo, the synopsis for the sci-fi adventure reads as follows:

"In After Earth, one thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige (played by 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 (played by 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."

The first picture from the film, which is written by Oscar-winning Traffic screenwriter Stephen Gaghan and Gary Whitta, was released earlier this year.

This will be Shyamalan's first film since his poorly received 2010 action-adventure project The Last Airbender.
