After Earth trailer shows survival won't be easy for Will Smith and son

If you were wondering just how hard sci-fi the new Will Smith action flick After Earth will be, wonder no more.

The new trailer is here, and it looks to be a sci-fi FX spectacle with everything from an epic spaceship crash to some cool set pieces to alien creatures and big tech MacGuffins.

In addition to a ton of action, the latest trailer also sets up the story of the Will and Jaden Smith flick. The father-son duo crash-land on Earth 1,000 years after humanity has abandoned the planet to the wild, and have to fight for survival in search of the ship’s lost beacon. It looks like a nice, personal story packed in a big-budget package.

Much like the upcoming Tom Cruise tentpole Oblivion, it could be a unique sci-fi tale that should make for a great 2013. If they manage to pull it off, it could be stellar.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:

After Earth is directed by M. Night Shyamalan and opens June 7.
