Christopher Webster [Celluloid 07.16.12] post apocalyptic action thriller



Has Facebook joined promotional forces with M. Night Shyamalan for After Earth? The timeline used in this viral video for his new post-apocalyptic After Earth looks oddly familiar...


Synopsis:
In After Earth, one thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind’s new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige (played by Will Smith) returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai (played by Jaden Smith). When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai’s craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance.

Will Smith and son Jaden Smith are set to star in the science fiction film.

I'm a little confused. The Raige's are Polish. When did they become black? Is this a sign of the modern age that we don't care about the ethnicity of the actor playing the part? Or are we supposed to notice that Will Smith is apparently descended from a white Polish family? Is it a statement on the blending of the ethnicities in the future - how we've all basically become one human race?

Watch it again - the scientist family is polish, the ranger family is whatever.
