The New York premiere of Will Smith's new action movie 'After Earth' was almost like a reunion for the actor as several old friends showed up to offer their support.

The event was truly a field day for photographers with celebrities from Wyclef Jean to Bruce Willis making their appearances on the red carpet. Will Smith was the star attraction alongside his son and co-star Jaden Smith, and he also brought along his other two children Willow Smith and Trey Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith. Joining them were 'After Earth' director M. Night Shyamalan (the man behind 'The Sixth Sense' and 'The Village'), Smith's co-star Kristofer Hivju, Oscar-nominated director Spike Lee and rapper 50 Cent. There was even an appearance from Smith's former 'The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' co-star Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Will's rich and very spoilt cousin Carlton Banks. Another notable attendee was genuine NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin, best known for being the second man to walk on the moon in 1969.

'After Earth' is due to hit UK cinemas on June 7th 2013 and tells the story of a father and son who crash land on Earth which is now a desolate wasteland overrun with savage creatures. When the father becomes critically injured on their spacecraft, his son must embark into the wilderness alone to recover a rescue beacon so they can return home to Nova Prime. The movie marks Will and Jaden's Smith second collaborative effort after 2006's much acclaimed 'The Pursuit of Happyness'.

I think this film looks good from watching the trailer, a nice bit of light sci-fi for a rainy day
