Happening trailer!

02.04.2008

UPDATE - The debut of the HAPPENING trailer was apparently not sanctioned by Fox or M. Night Shyamalan and the trailer has been pulled by iKlipz. Hopefully it will turn up soon in some fancy Quicktime HD...

A lot of people jumped off the M. Night Shyamalan bandwagon after LADY IN THE WATER but strangely I kept my seat. I actually enjoyed LITW (begin calling me crazy) and still think the guy is one of the best suspense directors in the game. Perhaps a little of the old hubris has gotten in the way of his filmmaking but let's face it, the guy's got the goods. His latest offering, THE HAPPENING is getting ready to happen this summer with Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel starring. MNightFans.com just dropped us a line with word that the film's first trailer has mysteriously popped up online at iKlipz. Why didn't Fox run this last night during the Super Bowl?? This would've killed (pun intended)! I'm a big fan of what I see below and can't wait to see the final product. THE HAPPENING opens on June 13th.

Check it out on youtube

There are about a dozen previews on youtube.com if you want to see it. The quality isn't bad either.

Even though he took a hit with Lady in the Water I didn't think it was all that bad. I still like watching his movie's and the trailer looks very interesting.

so what......

So LITW sucked, I actually liked The Village apart from the ending. Every director is allowed the occasional miss and I don't think this is going to be one of them. Looks like he's gone back to " what in the shit is going on??? " mode and if we can put up with Wahlberg's constipated face acting then it should be a fun ride

Very Excited.

Big fan of Shyamalan, I'm super pumped for this film. It'll be great to see what he can do under the American "R" rating, let his dark side run crazy.
Here's to ORIGINAL ideas in hollywood (enough with the remakes and torture porn films).
I'll be there opening day :)

WOW

Okay, I was pretty ticked by the unintelligible tripe that was LITW but this looks f-ing good. People dropping dead, committing suicide for no reason? Reminds me of that Japanese horror film Suicide Club. M. Night has delivered before, including one film that really set the suspense genre on its ear (Sixth Sense). For that, Signs and The Village (so sue me, I dug it although it was obvious) I will believe in Shyamalan. I think the horrible receiving of Lady In The Water knocked him down a

I think the horrible receiving of Lady In The Water knocked him down a peg or two and that humility will have caused him to think "Maybe I SHOULD rewrite this, after all, not everyone can read my mind."

Plus, its coming out on my b-day. I love it when its on Fridays, that so creepy/cool!

Lady in the Water was by no means perfect, but it was at least creative and original. The Happening looks like a good time to me. I'm there.

Just waiting for the twist ending to this one: everybody's already really dead? :P

I think MKS is a cut above most of his peers, but I really wish he would just let someone else write his stuff. The guy has great premises, but the follow through (and the inevitable "twist" reveal) is almost always painfully lame.

Of course, were someone else to write his stuff, he wouldn't be the much-vaunted auteur that he is, right?

Have to agree, his trailers and concepts make you want to see his

Have to agree, his trailers and concepts make you want to see his flicks. Having Zooey star doesn't hurt either.
But hopefully he also holds off on the 7 minute uninterrupted camera positioning in a scene.

kudos to M. NIGHT!!!

Kudos to M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN, one of the few real ORIGINAL voices left in Hollywood. Here's a dude who is just 37 FUCKIN' YEARS OLD and he's already written AND directed 5 very unique movies, a couple of which are already CLASSICS in my eye (SIXTH SENSE, UNBREAKABLE).

Alls we do, day-to-day, on this site and within our friends is BASH Hollywood, especially over the past few years, with all the remakes and rehashes and all the TV shows being made into movies, and here's a guy who CONTINUES to

Alls we do, day-to-day, on this site and within our friends is BASH Hollywood, especially over the past few years, with all the remakes and rehashes and all the TV shows being made into movies, and here's a guy who CONTINUES to write his own movies, and come up with new and creative ways to make us want to see a movie.

Clowns like Ratner, Boll, McG, and all of those dudes should be lucky enough to pronounce this guy's name! I wish there were more people and filmmakers in Hollywood like Shyamalan. I realize the guy (and his movies) isn't perfect (easy on the ego, dude), but for fuck's sakes...let's support the home-team, folks!

And how about his trailers? Most every single one of the teaser trailers to his films has been INVENTIVE and leaves you ASKING QUESTIONS. In a world...where all we get is trailers featuring the ENTIRE MOVIE in 1:30 minutes, more kudos go out to Shyamalan for HOLDING BACK.

Can't wait to see this and whatever else you come up with, dude.

decent, perhaps?

mmmm, I can smell the predictable plot twist already.

I'll give it a go but I expect little...maybe that will help me enjoy it a bit more.

this looks interesting, maybe he can pull off an R. I also love his work, but then again, I'm an idiot.

I'm surprised that so many people seem to dislike Signs, seeing that it didn't get that many bad reviews when it came out. It's his second most well-reviewed movie on Rotten Tomatoes. I'd have thought most people will have brought up The Village or Lady in the Water as his more recent stinkers.

if anyone would have lost faith in M Night, it would have been after Signs. That was pretty bad. That was also the reason I haven't even watched The Village until 1 week. And it was unfortunate I waited so long, because The Village was awesome and I'm a M Night fan again (can't wait to see Lady in the Water). I don't watch the trailer in that low quality though, waiting for the Apple version.

Well, this looks really good, but so did LITW and I was disappointed by that. Plus, he still has the stink of SIGNS on him. I'm willing to give it a chance, though.

uhh...

"hey, let's all kill ourselves." "sure, i'm in."
not what i thought this movie was going to be about. but now that i know, i want to see it even more.
oh, and zooey deschanel. i'd watch 90 minutes of a brett ratner or uwe boll home movie if zooey happened to be a family friend who made a cameo.
oh. "happened." see what i did? didn't even mean to.

The trailer looks good. The title does not. It seems really forced.

This is most likely the international teaser. The domestic one could be different, and it will be arriving Feb 14th in front of Jumper.

I haven't given up on Night yet, and it doesn't look like I will need to just yet. Can't wait til June 13th.

Looks like Shyamalan smoked another huge blunt and has come up with something very silly. I'll skip it!

"It will happen."
"There appears to be an event happening."
"Could this really be happening?"

Sigh...

Besides "Can this really be happening?" at the end, this looks pretty good. Plus Zooey. Yum.
