The Happening Extended Preview

An extended preview has just been released for The Happening upcoming mystery / sci fi movie directed by M. Night Shyamalan and starring Mark Wahlberg.

Here below the Happening extended preview:

Other would-be-serious movie sites are bashing Shyamalan's latest film (it's easy to criticize behind a computer screen, isn't it?...). But I think the director does not deserve it all: the Happening looks promising to my viewpoint. It's maybe a catatrosphe movie without explosive special effects, but that's not what Shyamalan is known for, what makes him a great director.

Shyamalan's force is to build a movie on a real plot. He also tries to make use of twists, but the revelation in itself does not have that much importance. So even if you read the spoilers of the Happening, it's still worth to watch the movie.

Indeed, actually with Shyamalan the journey is much more rewarding than the final destination.

And judging from this extended preview I would think we've got a vintage here: a movie that stands out by its quality, and makes it special.
