'After Earth' Teaser Chronicles End Of The World Via Facebook

Recommended Posts


[i]By Meg Malone[/i]

When the [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2012/07/03/will-jaden-smith-after-earth-plot/"]official plot synopsis[/url] for [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/475209/moviemain.jhtml"]"After Earth"[/url] came out earlier this month, we learned the film will tell the story of teenager Kitai ([url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/449016/personmain.jhtml"]Jaden Smith[/url]) who is trying to save his father, the renowned General Cypher Raige (real-life dad [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/58720/personmain.jhtml"]Will Smith[/url]) after the two crash on a planet Earth that was abandoned a millennium earlier.

Now with a new video teaser out for the [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/197557/personmain.jhtml"]M. Night Shyamalan[/url] film, we get some early back story on the lead up to this Earth abandonment. According to [url="http://www.deadline.com/2012/07/comic-con-after-earth-environment-hostile-to-humans-will-and-jaden-smith/"]Deadline[/url], the video was shown at the "After Earth" Comic-Con panel on Saturday, and now the teaser is up on the [url="http://www.afterearth.com/"]official "After Earth" website[/url] (thanks to [url="http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=92568"]ComingSoon.net[/url] for the tip). The video begins its tale way back in 1908 with a mysterious spaceship crashing on Earth, and from there details the ancestry of the Raige family and where they fit into the technological advancements and eventual environmental destruction that led to an evacuation of the deteriorating planet.

In the video, the last dated post is from February 2070 and is titled "Earth Uninhabitable." This leaves what happened in the thousand years since the evacuation still a mystery. What does regular life look like now for Cypher and Kitai? Considering the lengthy line of Raige influence, should we expect more family history or secrets to make their way out over the course of the movie as well?

And finally on a note of pure triviality, is anyone else curious what the four new notifications could be on the teaser's Facebook page? Maybe one is an event invitation letting them know that "After Earth" is set for a June 7, 2013 theatrical release.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
