The film stars Ethan Hawke and Game of Thrones' Lena Headley. The film is set in the future and one night per year citizens can legally commit violent crimes. The movie cost $3 million to make.

Will and Jaden Smith cover New York Magazine as they promote their latest film, After Earth. Here's what Will had to say when asked if his children were pushed into showbiz and if he'd be ok with Jaden being a dentist:
It may seem like we have pushed our kids into the business, but that is absolutely insane. I would never, ever, push somebody to have their face on a poster that’s going be everywhere in the world. He is making a choice from the informed. It’s less scary to me than if he wanted to be a dentist in that I couldn’t help with what he’d chosen. I have relationships with some of the biggest filmmakers and actors and producers on Earth. So I can be a huge help. Willow chose singing and then un-chose it. She said, “Daddy, I want to go to school with my friends during the week, and I want to hang out with them on the weekends.” At the peak of “Whip My Hair,” she’s like, “Daddy, I’m done.” At the end of the day, it has to be their choice.
Jaden added in his 2 cents: He’s, like, really just cool. He lets us have our freedom as long as we can control our freedom.

Jared Leto admits he "didn't eat" to get down to 116 for his role in The Dallas Buyers Club where he plays a transexual with AIDS.
I just basically didn't eat. I ate very little. 'I had done similar things with weight, but this was different, I think the role demanded that commitment… 'It was about how does that effect how I walk, how I talked, who I am, how I feel. You know, you feel very fragile and delicate and unsafe.
Jared says that family and friends that didn't know what he was doing thought he was sick…luckily he has recently regained his weight back. What a commitment!

“American Slavery was not a Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It was a holocaust. My ancestors are slaves stolen from Africa. I will honor them,”
Jamie Foxx had this to to say about Spike Lee’s criticism in a recent interview with The Guardian:
“The question for me is: where’s Spike Lee coming from?” he said. “He didn’t like Whoopi Goldberg, he doesn’t like Tyler Perry, he doesn’t like anybody, I think he’s sort of run his course. I mean, I respect Spike, he’s a fantastic director. But he gets a little shady when he’s taking shots at his colleagues without looking at the work. To me, that’s irresponsible.”
