Razzie Awards Crap All Over Movie 43, After Earth
The Razzies might as well be called the Easy Target Awards. Any time a Kardashian wins something, you are just begging for a headline, and not really commenting on the craft – or lack thereof – associated with the art of movie making. T

After Earth Will Crash Onto Blu-ray In October
If you are still on the M. Night Shyamalan bandwagon—apparently, such a thing does still exist--the After Earth release may be a good film to add to your collection. Fans of the director or the film will find a decent array of bonus features with both the Blu-ray and DVD sets of the film, although Blu-ray copies will come with a few additional featurettes. The big highlight with the set is a “never-before-seen” version of the opening sequence of the film

Buzz Aldrin Explains What After Earth Got Wrong
Joss Whedon fans will probably be the first to point out that "no sound in space" was one of the cool details featured the short-lived series Firefly, which had only music playing over scenes taking place outside of a spaceship. But maybe Shyamalan can excuse it all with explanations about new technologies in the future. After all, it is science fiction.

After Earth Lost To Both Fast & Furious And Now You See Me At Friday Box Office
Given some poor tracking, Jaden Smith’s unproven box office record and the incredible popularity of Fast & Furious 6, many experts went into this weekend willing to admit the young star’s After Earth might lose the money battle this weekend to the likeable holdover. If Friday’s estimates are any indication, not only is that definitely going to happen, there’s a distinct possibility the flick will also lose to Now You See Me

Sci-Fi, Space, And Staying In The Moment: Talking After Earth With Will And Jaden Smith

This Rotten Week: Predicting Now You See Me And After Earth Reviews
If this trailer left you a little lost raise your hand. I get the basic premise: four magicians perform bank robberies during their shows and Robin Hood-style give all the money they take back to audience members. Except that the trick they’re doing with robberies isn’t really the trick at all. The trick they’re doing is something more than the really big trick and we don’t know exactly what it is, or what it’s about because the illusions they create are meant to hide the motivations...

After Earth Release Date Moved Up A Week
It looks like we'll be getting to see M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi film After Earth a little bit sooner than expected. Sony has moved the release date of the movie up a week, setting the new date at May 31, which puts it up against Louis Leterrier's Now You See Me and horror-thriller The Purge. Had it stayed where it was, After Earth would have been squaring off against Shawn Levy's comedy The Internship.

M. Night Shyamalan Compares After Earth To Jurassic Park And Tree Of Life
the reunion of the Smith men-- they co-starred in The Pursuit of Happyness, you may remember-- isn't even the most intriguing part of this sci-fi project. It's also the next film from M.

Furhman has a role in the upcoming potential mega-hit The Hunger Games, and if you see here there you might not recognize her-- she's all grown up now at 14, and looks almost nothing like the little girl who terrorized Vera Farmiga and Peter Sarsgaard.
