Sony Pictures has released, via Blackfilm.com, an exclusive first look at Sophie Okonedo and Zoe Kravitz‘s characters from the sci-fi epic After Earth.
Directed by M. Night Shylaman and starring Will Smith and Jaden Smith, the film opens on May 31, 2013.
In the film, 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.
Okonedo plays Cypher’s wife and Zoe’s character is their oldest daughter.
Ironically, Zoe’s mom, The Cosby Show’s Lisa Bonet, worked with Will Smith in Tony Scott’s 1998 film, Enemy of the State.
