Trailer: After Earth

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!

The final trailer for Disney's adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's "Barsoom" series. Will it live up to the books? Probably not. Still, it looks like it'll at least be a fun ride. We'll just have to wait until March 9, 2012 to find out.
