After Earth - Most Likely No Extended Cut Later On
After Earth got a lot of press in the last few weeks and not the kind that the makers would have wanted. Apart from bad reviews and the accusation that Will Smith uses his star power to elevate his son Jaden into the Hollywood crowd, the suspicion that the film's big secret is a big tribute to the teachings of Scientology was widely discussed among media outlets and film fans. Will Smith has participated in creating the story and has been rumored to be linked to the sect for some years now.
And all that led to a big letdown at the box office for the $130 million project. Despite the need for every Dollar that the studio can get their hands on in order to refinance the film, an Extended Cut seems to be out of the question. Director M. Night Shyamalan made it clear that the theatrical version of the movie is the one he prefers, as he told Collider:
