I remember when the name M. Night Shyamalan used to be a good thing when it was attached to a project. Now, I tend to lose interest when I see his name attached to anything. There’s just something about The Happening that ruined it all for him.
I will say that Shyamalan’s latest film, After Earth, sounds like the most interesting thing he’s done since Unbreakable. It stars Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith and it takes place in the future, when a father and son crash land on an alien planet. I like the concept and I like the stars attached, so Shyamalan has me curious until a trailer comes out, in which I can then gauge my expectations with. Right now they’re low, but I’d like that to change.
After Earth is scheduled to hit theaters on June 7th, 2013.
