The post-apocalyptic movie genre naturally lends itself to the recent advances in CG technology. Often, the visual elements of these films tend to overshadow and trump the actual story the movie is trying to tell us.
We'll let you be the judge of this new trailer for After Earth starring Will Smith and his son Jaden as a father-son tandem that crash lands on Earth 1,000 years from now. It's a very different place and humanity has long vacated the planet. But that doesn't mean there aren't dangers awaiting our heroes.
Much of the latter half of this trailer features footage that we've already seen in the first trailer but one thing that remains consistent is the absence of M. Night Shyamalan's name anywhere in this trailer. Shyamalan wrote and directed the sci-fi action-adventure along with Syriana scribe Stephen Gaghan.
Take a look below and sound off with your thoughts on the film. Are you looking forward to see this movie when it arrives in theaters on June 7? Does this movie look like it's going to be a hit or another costly box office dud?

I don't care how well "After Earth" is received critically, I'll see this once it opens in June.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
