Will Smith, Jaden Smith and M. Night Shyamalan didn't show up at Comic-Con, but that didn't stop their new movie After Earth from making an appearance. The panel included producers and writers of the film talking about how the film came to fruition and a more in-depth description of the synopsis.
You can watch clips from the panel down below. Meanwhile, a new viral video was revealed using Facebook Timeline to guide us through the backstory.
Here's the official synopsis for After Earth:
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.
After Earth arrives in theaters June 7, 2013. Check out the video and Comic-Con clip below.
