After Earth DVD
After Earth is a 2013 American science fiction action adventure film directed by M. Night Shyamalan, which he co-wrote with Gary Whitta, based on an original story idea by Will Smith. It is the second film (the first being The Pursuit of Happyness) that stars real-life father and son Will and Jaden Smith, and Sophie Okonedo; Will Smith also produced via his company Overbrook Entertainment, and the distribution was by Columbia Pictures. The film was released in IMAX on May 31, 2013. It received negative reviews from critics, with major criticism over Jaden Smith's performance as well as the self-contradicting script, bad pacing, numerous inconsistencies and plot holes. The film under-performed at the box office but was a modest success overseas.
