Today's Box Office: After Earth

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 Film Critic Jonathan Nettles on Will Smith's latest film, After Earth.

After Earth takes place in the future. Humans have left Earth for a new planet. On this new planet, they found an enemy that hunts by smelling your fear. Some humans have learned to "ghost" which means they have learned to not fear making them invisible to their enemy. The man who is best at this (and is also the most highly-decorated commander of the military) is Cypher Raige (Will Smith). He leads his family as he does his soldiers and his son, Kitai (Jaden Smith), is struggling to live up to his father's expectations and live in his shadow.
