The Happening deets

Aug. 26, 2007by: Ben Barna
A lot is riding on M. Night Shyamalan's next feature THE HAPPENING, not just with his career, but with the fans he's made from THE SIXTH SENSE, UNBREAKABLE and SIGNS. A Philadelphia blog called Phillyist.com posted some cell phone pics from the set recently, where you can see Night and the movie's star Mark Wahlberg on set (Zooey Deschanel and John Leguizamo co-star).

But what's more interesting, is that they're now posting some spoilery and pretty horrific plot details from a 'reliable source', and we all know that sources that are reliable are the best kind. I went ahead and read the details/spoilers, and although much is revealed, I hope I didn't go out and ruin the movie for myself. I'm not going to post them up here in case you don't want to read the details, but apparently the natural crisis that is a threat to mankind is an airborne virus that makes people want to kill themselves. Yeah, it's called reality. Also, for the record, no matter how much you may dislike Night's previous two efforts (I haven't even bothered with LADY IN THE WATER) you always have to give him the benefit of the doubt. There's just too much talent there. Check out the rest of the details HERE.

Extra Tidbit: This will be Night's first R-rated flick and will intentionally be released on Friday, June 13th, 2008.

Let's see...

6th sense = awesome
Unbreakable = pretty good
Signs = OH GOD TEAR MY EYES OUT NOOOOO!!!
The Village = Meh
Lady in the Water = Zzzzz.....

Based on this, I'm expecting to go in, be entertained, than completely forget everything that happened five minutes after I leave the theater.

I'm hoping... I'm hoping. 6th was okay... Unbreakable was utter trash... Signs was Okay... Los Village was utter trash... Lady was freaking awesome... so, by his track record, I'm expecting crap. :

I'm part of the group that likes anything the man dishes out - and that ESPECIALLY includes 'Lady in the Water.'

I don't understand why people bother to leak all of this stuff. I mean, it's Night. His movies are supposed to be wrapped up in mystery and whatnot. I just don't see why people would want to find out about a super secret plot in the first place since that's sort of most of the fun behind his films.
