From Academy Award-nominated filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan comes the science fiction adventure film After Earth, which he directed and co-wrote the script with Gary Whitta. Based on an original story idea by Will Smith, it stars Smith, his son Jaden Smith, Sophie Okonedo, Zoë Kravitz, Glenn Morshower and David Denman.
A millennium after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige has learned how to defeat Nova Prime’s alien creatures called S'krell by using a technique called “ghosting” to suppress his fear from their secret weapons -- large blind predatory creatures called Ursas that hunt by sensing fear. Home from an extended tour of duty, he reunites with his estranged family and tries to be a father to his 13-year-old son Kitai. However, Kitai blames himself for the death of his sister Senshi, who was attacked by an Ursa, and his father for being absent that day. Also Kitai is a disappointment when his application to become a Ranger like his father is rejected due to his recklessness.
To give time for father and son to bond, Kitai’s mother Faia convinces Cypher to take his son on his last voyage before retirement. During flight, an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai's craft and 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 filled with deadly creatures and recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted to prove himself to his father and make him proud; today he will have his chance if he can survive.
