Trivia:
Although not credited on the finished film, co-writer/producer Will Smith was responsible for much of the movie's direction. While Shyamalan was primarily in charge of the blocking (composition of shots, placement of the camera) and the visual aspects of the film (color and design), it was Will Smith who personally coached Jaden Smith in his performance and dictated the development of the story and the way the on-screen action would unfold.

The first feature film to use the Sony F65 digital camera, as well as M. Night Shyamalan's first digital film

Second time that real-life father and son Will Smith and Jaden Smith play father and son on screen. The first time was in The Pursuit of Happyness.

The original idea for the film was about a father and son on a camping trip. The son would've had to make his way through the forest to find help for the father after the car they were traveling in careened off the road. Realizing that the idea had greater potential, producer Will Smith and screenwriter Gary Whitta decided to adapt the basic survival concept into a much larger science-fiction project.

Will Smith had wanted to work with director M. Night Shyamalan for several years, but couldn't find a suitable project. It was Smith who personally hired Shyamalan to direct After Earth.

The original screenplay was written by Gary Whitta based on an idea by Will Smith. In pre-production, director M. Night Shyamalan did a few drafts of the screenplay to familiarize himself with the material, before passing it over to Stephen Gaghan, who stayed on as the chief screenwriter during production. Mark Boal, writer of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, also worked on the script.

This is the first time in twenty years that director M. Night Shyamalan has accepted a project based on someone else's screenplay.

Producer/co-writer Will Smith envisioned After Earth as a multi-platform franchise, including books, graphic novels and interactive video games, which would all inform and add to the ideas and concepts already developed in the finished film.

A 300-page "bible" covering the history of mankind from their decision to leave Earth right up to the events depicted in the finished film was prepared by Eisner Award-winning comic writer Peter David alongside Michael Jan Friedman and Robert Greenberger. The bible would serve as a resource for all kinds of ancillary materials in the After Earth franchise.

A series of spin-off novels, sub-titled "Ghost Stories", have been planned to promote the movie, but are also intended to flesh out the concepts in the film itself. The titles of these books include 'Innocence', Peace, 'Hunted' and 'A Perfect Beast.' All books are written by Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman and Robert Greenberger, with illustrations by Benito Lobel.

Harper Collins and Insight Editions published 'After Earth: United Ranger Corps Survival Manual' and 'After Earth: Kitai's Journal', to promote the movie.
