We here at Awesomely Bad Movies know that even the biggest of box office draws can make a false move. Thinking your own star power can overshadow a name as poisonous to ticket sales as M. Night Shyamalan might be the falsest of them all. This happened with our pal (whom we’ve never met) Will Smith who wanted to make a sci-fi action vehicle for his son, Jaden, and turned to Mr. Twist Ending himself to do it. There are now two eras in Will Smith’s filmography: Before-After Earth and After-After Earth.
If you’ve ever wanted to see Will Smith sit in a room by himself and give the least peppy pep-talks of all time while a much less charismatic member of that gene pool runs around and pretends CGI monsters are real, then this is the movie for you. If none of that’s ever happened, then just watch the above video and call it a D-A-Y.
