Will and Jaden Smith: What Life Could Be Like ‘After Earth’
What is going to happen to Planet Earth hundreds of years from now?
Will Smith and Jaden Smith try to answer that mystery in their new movie, After Earth. The sci-fi flick explores a father and son who arrive on the planet 1,000 years into the future. Humans have left to live in space…while new and unfriendly species haven taken over.
As the United States celebrates Earth Week this week, Jaden admits shooting the film had an effect on him. “I feel like I really saw some true beauty in the world after shooting in Costa Rica,” the 14-year-old said. “After that experience, it really showed me how important it is to save the world.”
Will agrees and hopes the movie will allow consumers to think. “This film does exactly what I always dreamed to be able to do with entertain and to also be able to pose interesting questions,” the father of three said.
After Earth opens in theaters nationwide on June 7.
