After Earth Viral Video Online
Get to know the Raige family ahead of M Night Shyamalan's next film.
Another exciting hint to come out of Comic-Con this weekend was the below viral video for M Night Shyamalan’s After Earth. Setting up the world of the film neatly through the use of a strangely unchanged Facebook timeline of the future (As internet tycoons ourselves, we feel the need to let Zuck know it’s probably worth freshening it up by then), we’ve got a clearly well-thought out backstory on our hands here.
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.
