Looks like Will Smith is grooming son Jaden to carry on the family business. Father and son team up again in the upcoming sci-fi thriller “After Earth.” The upcoming blockbuster stars Will as a general who crash lands on Earth with his son (Jaden), and the two must work together to survive as they find their way home.
“After Earth” is directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who’s had an unlucky streak with his past few movies. His 2010 film, “Avatar: The Last Airbender” opened to terrible reviews, scoring a paltry 6% on Rottentomatoes. “The Happening” in 2008 with Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel also opened to abysmal reviews.
Let’s hope Will Smith’s charisma and box office drawing power can turn Shyamalan’s luck around. “After Earth” opens nationwide June 7th.
