One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, they re-established society on the planet Nova Prime. Abandoned, Earth continued to flourish on its own.
One thousand years after the departure from Earth, the Ranger Corps, a peace keeping organization established shortly after colonization of Nova Prime, is led by the legendary General Cypher Raige (Will Smith), a wise but cold and emotionless father. His teenage son, Kitai (Jaden Smith), is a recruit of the Ranger Corps, but his knack for mischief frustrates Cypher.
Cypher takes Kitai on a mission to Earth. When an asteroid storm damages the craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. 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. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more
than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance.
AFTER EARTH is a science fiction action film co-written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. It stars real-life father and son Will and Jaden Smith as Cypher and Kitai Raige. AFTER EARTH is based on an original story idea by Will Smith.
