First Look: M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening Poster
For being the very first official image of any sort for M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening, I'm quite unimpressed. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Zooey Deschanel, John Leguizamo and Betty Buckley and follows a family (Wahlberg and Deschanel) that goes on the run from an apocalyptic crisis that presents a large-scale threat to humanity. Despite M. Night's last film, Lady in the Water, being rather forgettable, I still have an absolute appreciation for the production values and unique feel that only M. Night can bring. I think The Happening will be a strong return for Shyamalan, even if this first teaser poster sucks.

We've Sensed It. We've Seen The Signs. Now… It's Happening.
What I'm most interested in with The Happening is just finding out what the heck the "apocalyptic crisis" actually is! The only hint is that it was originally described as an "eco-thriller" and the threat is a "natural crisis." Does that mean we're going to see tornadoes take on a mind of their own? Anyway, screw all of you Shyamalan haters out there, his movies are fantastic! It's all about the discovery of the twists, and I know there's going to be something huge in this.
