At this point leading into the summer, M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening doesn't have much buzz. But all that is about to change. A very chilling new trailer has launched for the film and it definitely ramps up the excitement for Shyamalan's next. I first saw this new trailer show in front of Iron Man last night and all the sound effects, including the dead bodies and banging on the walls, are that much more heart-pounding in the theater than here online. You really need to give this a chance - Shyamalan is really going to scare the crap out of us this time, like he normally does, but with a twist (of course). I'm pretty sure Fox made a smart decision releasing this during the summer - it's going to be a very refreshing thriller compared to comedic and action flicks that otherwise crowd the next few months.
I really love both Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel - I think the cast in in this is definitely one of the stronger areas, but that is usually the case with Shyamalan's movies. What are your thoughts on this latest trailer?
