There are two animals that can be linked as a proxy of animals that really co-existed with humans and were quite dangerous. The predatory big cats are often referred to as "sabre-toothed" cats, which could be true if one was using Machairodus or Homotherium as a reference. The giant condor could be based on Argentavis, a giant condor of the South American Miocene Epoch that is considered the largest flying bird to ever have existed. The Haast Eagle seems to also be a source of inspiration, which was the largest bird of prey ever to take flight and existed in New Zealand from the end of the Pleistocene to the middle of the Holocene in approximately 1400 AD when their main food source, the giant Moa went extinct through human activity. What this has to do with the condor of this film is that the Maori Settlers told stories of the bird carrying away children, men, and women and was known to these people as the Pouakai. See more »
When the asteroids get ejected from the wormhole along with the ship, they immediately begin to slow down. In space, however, they would continue in their speed until e.g. hitting an obstacle or entering the gravitational pull of a planet. See more »
I've heard stories of Earth. A paradise. Until we destroyed it.

I watched this film with my girlfriend expecting to see another great film by Will Smith. After you have seen him in films like I am Legend, I robot and other great films. I thought this would be yet another. I was poorly mistaken, the acting was terrible. from both Will Smith and his son. I cant help but feel his son only gets parts in films due to his fathers fame. Maybe if the boy were to sell popcorn and soda to people, his contributions to the film industry would be more welcoming. As his acting is far below par. The film was so shockingly boring that my girlfriend and I left the cinema 20min before the film ended. As a few other people had done before us. Avoid this film like the plague. If I could have given it no stars I would have. Bad story line, bad acting, bad film.
