Jaden Smith Hopes That ‘After Earth’ Helps to Change the World

Reteaming with father Will Smith for the first time since his breakout role in The Pursuit of Happyness, 14-year-old Jaden Smith is excited by his new apocalyptic sci-fi film After Earth. Not only is the film, directed by M. Night Shyamalan, his first go at a lead role, it is also a project that Jaden thinks will help people come to acknowledge, and hopefully rectify, the mistreatment our planet has endured.
