Taking place a thousand years in the future, After Earth tells the story of a military veteran and his son, played by father and son acting duo, Will and Jaden Smith.
The planet in After Earth has become hostile to humans – with plenty of aggressive animals ready to attack. The film tells the story of a son finding his strength, proving himself and gaining parental acceptance.
After Earth has recently opened in the US with a disappointing reception from both critics and audiences.
Tom Brook discusses the film and its reception with director M Night Shyamalan and talks with the film’s star, Will Smith.
