Provided we all get past 21 December of this year, the next in the line of apocalyptic films comes in the form of M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth, scheduled for release next June.

With a story written by Men In Black star Will Smith, the film tracks a man (Smith) and his son (played by his son Jayden Smith) who are stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after humanity has abandoned it.

With Cypher (Will) critically injured, Kitai (Jayden) 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.
