Two Smiths, One Big Issue: Will Smith & Jaden Smith to curate Metro

Big news for Big Willie Style fans: Jaden Smith will join forces with his father, Will Smith, as special guests of Metro on April 22.

The Smiths will create exclusive content in honor of Earth Day and the duo’s action film “After Earth.” Their film is set on Earth 1,000 years after humanity has fled, with Jaden on a mission to find help for his injured father, battling animals and an alien.

In their roles as Metro’s special guests, Jaden and Will Smith will imagine what the world will look like hundreds of years from now when it comes to environmental impact, advances in technology and transport, and media. The pair will also sit for an exclusive Q&A with Metro. All content will run in Metro’s print and digital editions around the world.

“There are some things only the world’s largest newspaper can do,” says Metro’s Global Editor-in-Chief Margaret Samways. “And given our global reach, we’re thrilled Jaden and Will can contribute to an issue pegged to Earth Day. Especially before the aliens arrive.”
