Will Smith is no stranger is post-apocalyptic-related movies ("I Am Legend," "Independence Days"), and now, he's gotten his son Jaden in the mix.
The first trailer for "After Earth," M. Night Shyamalan's dystopian thriller, has arrived. The film, which stars Will and Jaden Smith as a father-son duo (Cypher and Kitai Raige), takes place 1,000 years after humans were forced to evacuate Earth due to cataclysmic events. However, when an asteroid hits Cypher and Kitai's aircraft, they end up descending to an unfamiliar and dangerous planet Earth.
The movie is a departure from Shyamalan's normal brand of horror-suspense. Granted, this isn't the filmmaker's first go-round with sci-fi: in 2010, he released the critically lambasted The Last Airbender." Here's hoping he has more luck with "After Earth." You can watch the new trailer in the video above. "After Earth" is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2013.

Earlier on Moviefone:
Will Smith Eats Sushi
That time Will Smith destroyed a plate of sushi on a Japanese game show. (Head to the three-minute mark to wach him slurp up a gigantic piece of shrimp!) Give credit to Will, who does a pretty good job of having a conversation with a group of people who don't speak his language.
Will Smith Raps About Crossdressers
Actual lyrics from the 1989 track from DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince: "She was about five foot six or maybe six and a half // With a body like a goddess, man, this girl was bad! ... // Anyway from behind she was fine // But when she turned around, her mustache was bigger than mine // At first I laughed, cause yo, to me that was funny // But the laughter ceased when she said hey <em>[in a male voice]</em> Honey // At first I was confused, I was somewhat spell-bound // My mouth wide open and my chin on the ground // And then it hit me, like a bolt from the sky // I thought: hold up - wait - this girl is a guy"
Will Smith Races Bill Gates, Beck and Weird Al
How did they ever get Bill Gates to agree to this?
Will Smith Gets Food Allergies
Smith may be considered a "date doctor" in the 2005 comedy, "Hitch," but that didn't stop his character from having an allergic reaction, thereby destroying his beautiful movie star looks. Not even Will Smith can make allergic reactions look good. (Sorry, that's last reference we'll make to that line.)
Will Smith Raps About the Planet
This ABC After School Special featured the Fresh Prince rapping about the dangers of polluting: "Every time you put a paint can in a trash can, you take a piece of the world from the next man." (Look out for the Ice-T cameo around 1:50 mark!)
Will Smith Slaps A Reporter
It was the slap heard 'round the world! Last week, at the "Men in Black 3" premiere in Moscow, a "reporter" tried to kiss Smith on the mouth. Unfortunately, Will wasn't having any of that and decided to slap him in the face.
Will Smith On Blossom
For all you "Blossom" fans out there: In this episode, Blossom encounters a dumbstruck Will Smith (or, more accurately, "The Fresh Prince") in an elevator. She starts screaming, he calms her down, then she starts screaming again. (Smith comes in at the four-minute mark.)
Will Smith Gets Slimed
This past April, Will was the latest in a very long line of celebrities to get slimed at the annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. As you can see, hiding behind Justin Bieber didn't do much in the way of keeping him clean.
