One of this Summer's most secretive blockbusters of this year is none other than the Will/Jaden Smith Sci-Fi/Action vehicle, After Earth. However, it's secretive in a way that is at once surprising and clearly logical. After Earth's secret, at least when it comes to how the movie is being sold, is that it's directed by none other than Crap Auteur Extraordinaire M. Night Shyamalan. That's right kids, just when you thought it was safe to go back to the Multiplex, everyone's (least) favorite Hitchcock wanna-be is gracing our screens once more. And what Shyamalan film wouldn't be complete without...THE TWIST! Go ahead and watch the trailers again with that knowledge, and try to refute the possibility that somewhere in the trailer is "clever" misdirection leading us all to think one thing, only to twist it into something else by the end of the film.... So taking a page from Douglas Reynholm's movie watching playbook, let's guess the twist to the predestined Razzie Award nominee, After Earth!
