After Earth looks kind of cool, but it's directed by M. Knight Shyamalan, so it will likely be massively disappointing. On the plus side, a new Shyamalan movie means it's time to play "Guess the Twist!" What do you think it will be?
My guess is Shyamalan will "borrow" from older, better sci-fi and this will actually be the story of how humans colonized pre-historic Earth, making the title of the movie almost completely meaningless. What a twist!
"L5" is a crowd-funded independent miniseries premiering later this month. It centers around the crew of a manned mission to Barnard's Star. When they return to earth they find 200 years have passed and there's no sign of life anywhere on the planet.
