Science Fiction For Youth ~ After Earth & Ender's Game 2013


After Earth Banner | A Constantly Racing Mind



Below is a clip of Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) on his mission to save himself and his father, encountering some ultra bad-ass CGI tigers and some sort of giant bird in "After Earth." See the  clip below. 



With some very serious Sci-Fi coming out this year for adult audiences, like "Gravity," , "Europa Report,"  and the Tom Cruise film "Oblivion," Hollywood had deemed it necessary to provide the tweens with some Sci-Fi fodder as well.  After Earth is literally a father and son tale of bonding and coming of age in a post-human Earth. After humanity's escape to other worlds abandoning Earth to naturally select on its own, the creatures have climbed the evolutionary ladder without humans being in the way. After Earth star Will and Jaden Smith and is directed by M. Night Shyamalan ("The Sixth Sense"), and starts on May 31st 2013.

Later this year, Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford star in an adaptation of Orson Scott Card's bestselling novel, "Ender's Game." Once agin focused on the youth as the hero, Asa Butterfield's Ender Wiggans is humanity's only hope in the fight against the alien insectoid Buggers. Written and directed by Gavin Hood, "Ender's Game" comes to theaters on November 1st 2013.
