Movie Review: After Earth

After Earth PosterAfter Earth
Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Cast: Jaden Smith, Will Smith, Isabelle Fuhrman, Sophie Okonedo, Zoë Kravitz
Columbia Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 100 Minutes
Release Date: May 31, 2013

In the future, humanity is forced to abandon Earth after a series of cataclysmic events. Human civilization is re-established on Nova Prime, a habitable exoplanet beyond our Solar System.

One thousand years later, the United Ranger Corps is at war with the Skrel, an aggressive alien species. Led by the fearless General Cypher Raige (Will Smith), the Ranger Corps fight the Skrel’s ultimate weapon: the Ursa. Bred for warfare, the Ursa are genetically engineered for one purpose: to hunt and kill humans.

Cypher and his rebellious son Kitai (Jaden Smith) are transporting an imprisoned Ursa when their spacecraft is damaged by an asteroid storm. The ship crash-lands on post-apocalyptic Earth, freeing the deadly alien beast. With his father severely injured, Kitai must retrieve an emergency beacon by embarking on a perilous trek across uncharted terrain to signal for help.

Co-written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan (The Last Airbender), After Earth is a father-son story dressed up in the trappings of science fiction. With a story by Will Smith and a screenplay penned by Shyamalan and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli), After Earth is a slapped together hodgepodge of sci-fi tropes that is as tedious as it is generic.

‘After Earth’ Trailer: Jaden Smith Learns Harsh Lesson In Survival & Father-Son Bonding

After Earth header

The first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan‘s After Earth was nothing more than a tease that can be best described as an announcement that the film was his latest directorial effort. There was nothing much to look at, but what was given in the trailer looked pretty cool to say the least. The visuals were just as fascinating to the viewers as it was to the characters (played by Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith), and now a new trailer is giving us a better sense of the world that surrounds these characters and the story that will hopefully keep the audiences interested.

Watch the new trailer here below.

Assuming that Shyamalan sticks to his shtick, there will be a huge twist that we don’t see coming. Obviously the “this is Earth after 1,000 years” isn’t the big reveal; “After” is in the title after all, but surely there is something to come that isn’t in this trailer.

Will Smith is ready to produce yet another Hollywood remake through his company, Overbrook Entertainment, in which he is a co-owner along with his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sony Pictures, and recording artist/music mogul Jay-Z.

The team is set to remake Annie, the hit Broadway music based on the 1920s comic strip, Little Orphan Annie. Annie has also been turned into a feature film before by Columbia Pictures in 1982 and Disney in 1999.

In this new take on the story, Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith, is set to star in the lead role of Annie, the young orphan left in the care of an evil woman after her parents perish in a fire. Eventually, a very rich man decides to bring an orphan to his home for a week to improve his image; Annie is chosen and soon wins his heart.

‘Karate Kid’ Sequel On the Way

The Karate Kid 2010I guess we can file this news under the “No Duh” department, but after the new The Karate Kid movie decimated all other box office competition with a $56 million opening weekend, Sony Pictures has now begun taking meetings with writers concerning a second installment.

I believe it is a simple case of dollars and cents. When a movie that costs $40 million makes $56 million the first weekend, you have a success. Of course, we haven’t even considered the overseas profits or the money that they will make from DVD sales. Love it or hate it, Sony has rebooted a successful franchise and will make even more money from this concept in the future.

Movie Review: The Karate Kid (2010)

The Karate Kid 2010The Karate Kid (2010)
Directed by Harald Zwart
Starring Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan, Taraji P. Henson
Rated PG
Release date: June 11, 2010

The number one stupid complaint people give in the midst of this sequel/remake craze, besides the fact that they shouldn’t do them, is that too many movies from our childhood are being ruined. I never understood that logic. You like the movies you like, for whatever reason it may be. No matter how bad it is, nothing that comes after it is enough to take away whatever it was that made you like it in the first place. The franchise may be tainted, but the movies within that canon that you loved aren’t impacted. For example, if this Ghostbusters 3 movie ever gets off the ground and sucks, the first one will still be a classic.

I’ve reexamined a lot of my favorite movies from my youth lately and realized that a lot of them really aren’t that good. I liked them at the time and that has carried over to me still liking them, but usually for nostalgic reasons. I am unapologetic about it, but truth be told, they are what they are. That said, comparing a current remake to one we hold dear from back in the day doesn’t usually have a fighting chance for that very reason.

Then there’s the new The Karate Kid.

Tom Cruise Resurrects ‘Tropic Thunder’ Suit Les Grossman For MTV Movie Awards

2009-01-23-tropic_thunder.jpgAside from the trailers shown off at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, there was pretty much only one other thing that really stood out as memorable and hilarious. That, surprisingly, came in the return of Les Grossman, the vulgar, in-your-face movie-producing head honcho who made such a memorable mark in the Hollywood parody, Tropical Thunder.

Grossman (played brilliantly by the not-always-sane but still incredibly-talented Tom Cruise) opened the show up with a pre-recorded skit in which he takes on the producing duties of the MTV Movie Awards and goes on to offer advice (in his own loving way) to The Twilight Saga stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, and then to young Jaden Smith while poppa Will Smith stands by.

A little later on, stars of The Hangover Ken Jeong and Ed Helms opened up a musical number, which quickly gets Grossman’s attention and forces him to keep the show going himself with a dance number with JLo!

Again, these were pretty much the only thing entertaining about the ceremony, but now you can skip wasting time with the whole show and just click over to the other side and watch the videos now!

Watch Jackie Chan Train Jaden Smith In ‘The Karate Kid’ Trailer … Or Don’t

The Karate Kid

It’s the week of Christmas and as was assumed, the movie news is slow as slow can be. But there has been no slowing down for movie trailers and clips, and today brings the first trailer for the feared and unnecessary remake of the 1984 Ralph Macchio nostalgia-fest, The Karate Kid.

The remake stars Jaden Smith (The Day After Tomorrow), son of Will Smith, in the Daniel-san role, and Jackie Chan in the Mr. Miyagi role made famous by the late, great Pat Morita. While the premise is indeed the same, in this movie, the characters will not be; Smith is playing Dre Parker and Chan is called Mr. Han. Smith’s character and his mother (Taraji P. Henson) move to the faraway lands of China where he obviously doesn’t fit in at all. After an interaction with a young lady sees him getting a beating from a martial arts inclined boy, Chan takes him under his wing to teach him how to defend himself, citing “the only way to stop them, is to face them.”

Continue on to watch the trailer for The Karate Kid.
