Will Smith’s Overbrook & Virgin Produced Ink Deal For ‘After Earth’ Sequel & Other Projects

The Will and Jaden Smith sci-fi starrer had been slotted for June 7 but Sony Pictures has pushed up the wide release date to May 31, where it will open alongside Lionsgate/Summit’s Now You See Me and Universal’s The Purge but get an extra week of summer play. Sony gave exhibitors a first look at Columbia Pictures’ After Earth on Wednesday at CinemaCon, where attendees were quiet about the M. Night Shyamalan pic ahead of the studio’s presentation.
