The licensing expo is set to get underway next week in Las Vegas, which means that we’ll be seeing a number of synopses, promo images, and posters in the coming days. Today we’ve got our first look at a promo image from director M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming sci-fi pic After Earth, as well as the first synopsis for the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs sequel Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers. After Earth stars Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith as a father-son duo who crash-land on Earth 1000 years in the future and must navigate the abandoned planet to find salvation. The promo image is small, but it does give us a nice look at the film’s logo and some of the atmosphere that Shyamalan is reaching for. You can check out some pristine set photos for After Earth right here.
Additionally, the synopsis for Cloudy 2 reveals that our hero Flint Lockwood and his pals are forced to return to their food storm-ravaged hometown of Swallow Falls to battle sentient food beasts that have overrun the island. You had me at “sentient food beasts,” Cloudy 2. Hit the jump to check out the image and synopses.
Here’s the synopsis for After Earth:
Set 1000 years in the future, a boy navigates an abandoned Earth to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes.
Here’s the synopsis for Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers:
In the wake of the disastrous food storm at the end of the first movie, Flint Lockwood and friends are forced to leave their town of Swallow Falls. But when it is discovered that sentient food beasts have overrun the island, they are asked to return to save the world…again.
