LOS ANGELES, Calif. – May 8, 2013 – Reliance Games, a leading international developer and publisher of mobile games, Sony Pictures Consumer Products and Overbrook Entertainment, today announced a creative collaboration to bring the action-packed After Earth digital mobile game, based on the upcoming movie, in theaters May 31.
