Before the world presumably ends tonight (or is it tomorrow?), we have some new images and information to share with you from M. Night Shyamalan’s dystopian sci-fi epic, After Earth. While they might not be much help in the way of surviving the coming apocalypse, they should provide some interesting background on the picture should the world continue to spin on. After Earth stars Will Smith and Jaden Smith as a father and son team of explorers who crash land on a hostile Earth and attempt to survive. The new images flesh out details of Earth before the fall as well as how things stand in the film’s contemporary time. After Earth opens June 7, 2013. Hit the jump to check out the new images.
A slew of new images come courtesy of After Earth’s website and Facebook page. The first image comes from the prequel story by author Peter David; you can read an excerpt from it at io9. Click on the images to view in higher resolution:
A crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash. Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home.
