New After Earth trailer shows M. Night has no idea how evolution works

I wouldn't say I was at all optimistic that M. Night Shyamalan would ever make a decent movie again after the Airbender debacle, but I did assume he knew the theory of evolution. I guess not, though.

Seriously, watch this new After Earth TV spot. So... every animal on Earth has evolved specifically to kill humans over the course of a mere 1,000 years... the 1,000 years that no human beings were actually on the planet? Right. Got it. And you say Earth Day didn't save the planet? Someone grab me a monocole, so it can fly off my face in total shock!

In M. Night's defense, though, maybe evolution is far less structured than we thought. I mean, that would explain why Hollywood executives haven't evolved to the point where they stop allowing M. Night Shyamalan to make horrible fucking movies.

I was under the impression that this was artificially accelerated & directed evolution, not natural. Was I too optimistic?
