For the most part, the entire advertising campaign for M. Night Shyamalan’s newest film ‘After Earth’ has surrounded around the father and son duo of Will and Jaden Smith who play a father and son duo in the film. However, contrary to the posters and promos, there are other people in the cast and some pictures have recently surfaced to support that fact.
Some exclusive photos featuring the first look at the rest of the Smith’s family in this upcoming sci-fi film played by Sophie Okonedo and Zoe Kravitz have surfaced online. The former of the pair of actresses plays the wife of Will’s character Cypher and mother to Jaden’s Kitai, whereas the latter will play the oldest daughter of the Raige family. You can check out both photos below:
While we’re finally getting a look at some other characters that inhabit this world that Shyamalan has created, there’s one actress that has yet to be seen. After making her mark as Ester in the 2009 horror film ‘Orphan’ and appearing in ‘The Hunger Games’, Isabelle Fuhrman joined the cast and was said to be playing Rayna, a friend of Kitai’s. However, since being added to the roster of talent, we’ve yet to see any official images featuring the young actress as of yet. Considering that we have about a month left until the film’s release, maybe we’ll see her pop up in some promotional material soon.
For more information on the film, here’s the official synopsis:
A crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash. Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home.
‘After Earth’ starring Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Zoe Kravitz, Sophie Okonedo, and Isabelle Fuhrman takes off on June 7, 2013.
