About After Earth
Earth is abandoned after an apocalyptic event and humans establish a new society on a distant planet called Nova Prime. One thousand years later, a peace keeping organisation known as the Ranger Corps plan to go back to Earth. General Cypher Raige (Will Smith) is the wise but impassive leader of the mission. His lack of emotion often frustrates his teenage son Kitai (Jaden Smith) and they do not have a close relationship. Cypher's wife Faia (Sophie Okonedo) suggests that Kitai, a Ranger recruit, should go on the mission in an attempt to bring them together. However, the ship hits an asteroid field and crashes down to Earth. Everyone is killed apart from Kitai and Cypher, who is injured. Kitai is forced to journey through a land filled with dangerous creatures and difficult terrain to signal for help.
