A teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie, “The Happening,” has disappeared from the Internet. Just run a search, and the much-talked-about trailer that was posted everywhere is now…gone.
Except I found one place where it’s still available. 😉
Pretty cool! OK, so the acting leaves a little to be desired in parts. But I can definitely see where this could be quite the suspenseful and mysterious film!
At http://www.mnightfans.com/, the mystery of the disappearing trailer is explained. Apparently M. Night had not approved the trailer that was released – it wasn’t complete – so it’s been pulled. But is that what REALLY happened? Or is this an advertising ploy? You decide. 😉
As for the movie, it is set to be released on Friday the 13th in June (nice). It’s described as a “paranoid thriller about a family on the run from a natural crisis that presents a large-scale threat to humanity.” This sounds intriguing although not quite different from other movies I’ve seen recently (i.e. Cloverfield, War of the Worlds, etc.) Apparently the script was leaked to some people on the web and many didn’t like it. But one person wrote, “I think it’s a brutal, frightening and haunting script filled with suspense in the best of ways. A film that makes you afraid of a change in the wind.”
I haven’t given up on M. Night. I loved Sixth Sense and Signs. Unbreakable was hoaky and The Village was, err, disappointing. Lady in the Water… Well let’s not go there. But his vast imagination and ability to keep me on the edge of my seat are factors that won’t let me give up hope. This one – maybe this one – will be the next Sixth Sense?
This picture definitely peaks my curiosity:
