Will Smith ushers his son Jaden into the blockbuster club with a sci-fi adventure set on a far-future Earth, long abandoned by mankind. They play father-and-son, with Jaden fending for himself after Will cops it in a spaceship crash-landing. They say: The biggest critical and commercial flop of Smith Snr’s career, with audiences staying away from a ploddingly dull snoozer. Battleship Earth, anyone? (Report, Page 11.) Wesay: Directed by M. Night Shyamalan ( The Sixth Sense, The Last Airbender), After Earth is laughably outgunned by the gorgeous Oblivion, with Tom Cruise, and Matt Damon’s cutting-edge Elysium among 2013’s trio of big original sci-fi. Worse still is Smith Snr’s seeding of After Earth’s storyline with concepts lifted from his unfortunate new hobby – Scientology. Running time 100 minutes. Screens at Harbour Town, Nerang, Pacific Fair, Australia Fair, Robina, Coolangatta, Tweed City, Yatala Drive-in.
