US Happening trailer

02.15.2008

I always wonder if M. Night Shyamalan regrets his career trajectory. Like, if he could go back to having just finished THE SIXTH SENSE, whether he still would have made UNBREAKABLE, then squatted over and pooped out SIGNS, etc. Anyway, his new flick THE HAPPENING has itself a new(ish) trailer and as per usual that dastardly director has intrigued me once again. I picture him sitting at home in a huge arm-chair stroking a white cat and twiddling his moustache, saying something like "you'll stew on this... oh yes, you'll stew..." Highlight is still the dudes randomly falling off of the scaffolding. Lowlight is still Mark Wahlberg trying to make like he's a science teacher. I can't buy that he knows any more science than the correct momentum with which to punch a guy in the head. In case you haven't heard, THE HAPPENING is about a group of people on the run from a worldwide disaster. Marky Mark Wahlberg, Zooey Zoo Deschanel and Johnny John Leguizamo star. Check the trailer out HERE.
Extra Tidbit: UNBREAKABLE - so good. So underrated.

Mark Wahlberg in this reminds me of my science teacher in high school. In that he looked too damn cool to be a science teacher, which actually made the class all that more awesome because he actually WAS a cool dude. While Wahlberg is definitely a cool dude, I don't know if I'm really buying him as a science teacher.

But the trailer looks good and it appears that Shymalan will redeem himself of that LADY AND THE WATER whateverthefuck. I've dug all of his movies except for that one. Yes,

But I agree, that UNBREAKABLE is very much his best (well, my favorite at least) and definitely most underrated flick.

Eh, despite beliefs that M. Night is lousy, I still watch all of his films for proof. I make up my own mind. (I'm of the belief that UNBREAKABLE is one of the greatest overlooked movies of all time.) And despite all the people who balk, y'all know you go and watch his stuff too.

End of the world...again!

Oh yeah, this is going to be pure trash. How, and why is this guy still making studio films? Come with something, anything that doesn't look like a complete bore, and a waste of our time. Now, we have to put up with the bombardment of lame advertising we are going to be subjected to until this poor excuse for a film comes out. Pure yuppie trash, from a complete lame!

This was a pretty lackluster trailer, which means the film will probably be good.

Well, hot damn! I'm looking forward to this flick more than most Christians are looking forward to the return of the baby Jesus.

Shamalamadindong never fails to impress.

Hmmm

Meh, that trailer didn't do much for me, but I do hope this is the film to put Shammalammadingdong back on track. Although the shot of Wahlberg just flicking his eyes back and forth at 1:55ish did make me chuckle...

And yes, Unbreakable is underrated and awesome.

Eh.

He always puts together great trailers but then the film itself is terrible (excluding The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable).

Great Cast, great looking story, but if it turns out to be something else than what they're showing (like showing Lady in the Water to be a lil scary) then it should be good.

MUCH BETTER...

than the first trailer, which was just okay. Looks like this will have some great thematic elements. I can't wait.

I know what the twist is.

Just from watching the trailer. I guessed the Village's ending too. Goddamn he needs to stop trying to surprise us and write a good story, like his first two flicks.

Anyone wanna hear what I think is going to happen? IN THE HAPPENING?

Hmmm...

Can't wait to see it. It seems that M. Night Shyamalan might be back to his earlier form again. Where can I find the international trailer?

An Alright Trailer...

...but the international teaser was much better. With this sort of trailer in the US, I'm pretty sure we're skipping the teaser and just getting that theatrical. That teaser was awesome.

Nah,

The Invasion trailer was lame donkey poop. It tried to be artsy and scary at the same time and it ended up just looking stupid. I am a million times more excited for The Happening, and I am confident it will be better than The Invasion, The Ruins, The Signal, or whatever half ass movie that it similar.

It just looks like a poorly cut trailer to a potentially decent movie. I think this might suffer from comparisons to The Invasion (which actually had a decent trailer).

I love Zooey Deschanel.

Meh....

I have to admit that I'm still very underwhelmed by the trailer, even more than the previous one. They need to show more from the film to gain some interest.
