Title: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on November 08, 2007, 05:56:44 PM
About this time 2 years ago we were presented with the teaser trailer for Lady in the Water (it played in front of Harry Potter on 11/18)

Is there a chance we could be less than a month a way from a teaser for The Happening?

It may or may not be attached to one of the following...
Beowulf - 11/16
Hitman - 11/21
The Mist - 11/23

Hitman is a 20th Century Fox release as is The Happening.
hmmm... ;)

They finished filming a month ago. But we have another six months until the movie's release. We should get a teaser soon. Hopefully.

Hopefully, though this just helps to build the tension.  If he does release a teaser, I hope it is well done, and not something just thrown out there to keep the fans happy, just to say, hey here's something you all can drool over, even though it's not very good.

I think the marketing will be very well thought out this time around. From what I understand, that is one of the reasons Night decided to make this movie at Fox.

That's always comforting, I know Shyamalan knows what he is doing, but sometimes the studio doesn't.  Though if Shyamalan chose them then it should all be good.

They just finished shooting. It takes time to bring all the scenes together, sound effects and other essential things to turn it into a motion picture. They all take time. Plus, M.Night is strict about his films. I mean look at the hype several months ago about the script released online. That was indeed a short script that was released intentionally by M.Night himself. He just gave us a idea and also to critics that "My next movie is going to be something like this". Night being so secretive and strick will release a script of his next movie just like that. I mean a script is like a writer's child. I am sure there are lots of changes and who knows its a whole different thing. It's a promotion strategy.

Now after I and you all know what's The Happening about, we are all eagerly waiting for the teaser to hit the screens and online. That's promotion. Well, promotion strategy. Let's call it. PS for short.

I would say we won't see any teaser this month or next month. But, I can say this for the fact we might see some shots from the movie and definately a TEASER POSTER. I love M.Night's teaser posters. They are all creative.

Teaser trailer will be released during January. That's a (PS). And on March end we will see a official trailor giving us goose bumps again. Then we all won't be able to go to sleep till JUNE.

M.Night is smart and so as FOX people.

Anyone agree with me? :-)

One thing's for sure...It MUST NOT be misleading! The Village and Lady in the Water were, in my opinion, misleading...I can't handle another one! If The Happening is supposed to be scary, then give me a scary teaser! If not, don't do it...I'm crossing my finger's and praying that this film delivers.

I don't want to take on you as personal issue here because everybody has the right to express their opinion. And I am stating out my opinion here and I disagree with you on THE VILLAGE and LADY IN THE WATER were misleading. They were perfectly made. Who cares if someone thought that THE VILLAGE AND LADY IN THE WATER were supposed to be scary and should have made everyone pee in their pants.

M.Night can't just keep making scary movies like he made THE SIXTH SENSE, why we want him to make another SIXTH SENSE. He is smart and has ideas. What we see today from Hollywood today? Let me tell you, REMAKES and stupid movies like BEOWULF, animated 3D. The only reason people went to watch BEOWULF cause they want to see ANIMATED ANGELINA JOLIE having graphic sex.

No offense to Angelina or the actors, but that's what we get today from Hollywood. Stupid movies. A writer/director like M.Night brought us originals always. The happening is original. PLease don't think that THE HAPPENING is a horror movie. Let me tell you it is a movie based on a natural crisis, now you really want to get spooked from natural crisis like you got spooked in The Sixth Sense? I am sure you answer is NO.

The happening is another original movie from M.Night shyamalan and I am sure some scene may disturb us, but for god sake it is not an HORROR movie.

I hope you don't take this personal, just wanted to let that out from my chest.

Peace out.

I would agree with rulm and say that The Village and the Lady in the Water trailers were misleading, not to mention that they weren't all that great IMHO. I think the marketing shouldn't be overlooked for this film, it is extremely important. The only way for this film to be a success with its proper audience, is for it to reach its proper audience. I wouldn't write off marking as unimportant. Sure it won't effect whether or not I, or the rest of us, like the movie. However, it does effect Shyamalan's career. This film needs to be a success, and Night needs to shed his image of being misleading... (even if it is undeserved... which it is)

With that being said....

There are many things to be said about the current state of Hollywood today, but one thing I will not say is that Beowulf is a stupid movie.  I don't wish to criticize a director (and an extremely talented one at that) who is trying to establish a new excitement in the movie going experience. Beowulf is more than a computer generated movie, nor is it animated btw. Robert Zemeckis has devoted many years into developing the Performance Capture field of film, as well as 3D/IMAX presentation of said technology. As we will see with James Cameron's Avatar in 2009, 3D cinema could be a powerful tool helpful in revitalzing the theater industry.

Hey Rohan, I think you might have misunderstood Rulm...

He/She (sorry Rulm) wasn't blaming Night or the value of his films, Rulm was refering to the advertisement of Night's latest movies. If you go to the "Official The Village Site" (http://video.movies.go.com/thevillage/splash.html) it makes you think it's about a village that gets attacked by monsters who maul people and splash their blood on the doors. Then a chick runs into the haunted woods after her boyfriend or something like that to escape or get help or something. Whatever.

The point is that it drew the wrong audience, who were in turn dissapointed. A similar thing happened with Lady in the Water, one of the trailers made it look like Story might even be a threat! I mean come on! How stupid can the advertisement blokes be?!?

We are just hoping this one gets promoted properly, whether it's a horror or not.

Hope that helps...

First off I have to say that Shyamalan's The Village and Lady In The Water were both poorly marketed.  That said, I tend to agree with Rohan.  One thing that annoys me about Hollywood is their failure to stick to the source material.  With Beowulf they completely twisted and altered the story, a great one by the way, and turned it into a sexually alluring, gore filled movie test.  Check the part about the gore, because the book was very gory.  In Hollywood there is a lack of original story, which Shyamalan does have.  They rely on action, sex, and political stories.  Action is fun, but those types of movies never stick with you, they're there and gone.  Sex does two things, it brings in people and turns away people, for the most part I still don't know why Holleywood puts it in there.  Political stories, they, for the most part, bring in the Academy Awards, even though they are not the best, it is an avenue were you can build political allies, but almost never do well on the big market.  That said, there is originality creeping back into Hollywood and Shyamalan is one of those people, hopefully he won't be squashed.

Post by: Rohan on November 21, 2007, 09:32:13 PM
I am not taking it "Rulm" on personal basis. He threw his opinion and I threw mines. And I still disagree with the trailors were misleading. They were perfect trailors. I am the person who always tracks M.Night from day1 shooting till his movie comes to a big screen. From start I knew The Village is a love story, because M.Night wanted always to bring a love story on the big screen.

When I saw the VILLAGE website, I checked out everything in it. I didn't considered it as a HORROR movie. I considered it as a LOVE STORY. Trailors and the site were presented in a very mannerable way and totally justified with the movie.

Lady In The Water is great. I love it. Trailors never had any misleading. Teaser to Official trailor.

But you know what, M.Night is awesome I have all the respect in the world for him. But, I wish I wish Wish LADY IN THE WATER would be in the lake. A man living in a SHACK and there is a lake and narf appears. But too, late I am sure he thought about this as he is a smart writer, but also didn't wanted to recreate  VILLAGE type movie.

Anyways, let me ask you all a question? Actually hold on. Can the webmaster of this forum put a POLL?

DO YOU THINK THE HAPPENING IS A HORROR MOVIE?

Yes
No
I don't care.

To me, its not pure horror flick. Come on, think about JJ ABRAMS - CLOVERFIELD - trailors freak you out, but in the end is a "monster movie"

THE HAPPENING is a classic in the making. Mark my word.

I don't think it matters whether or not we (the fans) understand what the movie will be about, or whether or not we think it will be a horror movie. That's not what trailers are for. Fox doesn't need to sell this movie to M. Night fans, they need to sell it to the general public. The thing with The Village and Lady in the Water trailers is almost not even an argument, they were most definitely misleading to the average joe movie goer. Not a doubt in my mind.

Oh yea, it's a little early but... Happy Thanksgiving! to those here in the U.S.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: afi_village on November 22, 2007, 09:35:51 AM
the way you can tell that those trailers were misleading is by the publics reaction to the film.  i specifically being in the theater watching it the day it came out and there were a few jerk guys sitting behind me.  about twenty minutes into the film they were like "f**k this [referring to the romance plot they did not expect to see] get back to the monsters"

even as the fan that i am, i was expecting that movie to be much scarier then it was because of the marketing.  of course i didn't mind that it wasn't what i expected, i was going to see a shyamalan film not a gore fest.  but to the other crowd the trailers attracted (this particular group of guys commented when nights name came up "m night shyalaha-lah-an-a-a-a...what the hell sort of a name is that?" so they obviously had never heard of night before or cared to track his films from pre production to screen) they wanted a little less 'wuthering heights' a little more 'saw'.

same goes for lady in the water, even i was a bit upset at how tame it was.  i was expecting it to be creepy and dark from the advertising they used.  actually no, that's not true.  i had learned from the previous experience of the village not to trust anything in the trailers at all.  but trying to look at it from a completely objective viewpoint, which is what a regular person would have, they were misleading.  they set up the film to have much more drama, action, special effects and overall 'scary' moments then it did because they took every moment of the film that fit into those categories and condensed it into the trailer. 

a good example of what i mean is that remake of starsky and hutch that came out a few years ago, i guess it's a bit more then a few years now, i don't really remember anymore.  anyway, that was the only trailer i've ever laughed in, it was really funny.  but when i went to watch it in the movies i realised they had condensed all the jokes of the entire film into the trailer.  all the film corporations care about is getting your money, so of course they will market a movie anyway they feel will get the most bums on seats.  whether that advertising is completely misleading like shyamalan movies or it ruins the movie itself like starsky and hutch.  looking back i guess that was a sort of stupid example to use, but it was the firsat thing that popped into my head!

i'll put my vote in for the poll: i don't care if it's a horror movie, i'll be watching it because of the directors name attatched to it, not to see gore.  i haven't read the script and i don't want to know anything about it before i see it, so really i'm in no place to say if it's a horror movie or not.  i'm assuming none of us are since none of us have actually seen it yet!  whether or not it's a horror movie is completely irrelevant really. 

ok, done with my rant. 
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Rohan on November 22, 2007, 03:00:44 PM
Then lets wait guys for the teaser trailor for THE HAPPENING. It will look likes it creepy. I don't know did you guys saw the same trailors for THE VILLAGE AND LADY IN THE WATER that I did. They never looked freaky to me.

Trust me, I have heard lots of jerks in theatre talking #@!* about M.Night. Let me tell you all a story which is true. I went to watch I,ROBOT and they showed THE VILLAGE TRAILOR in front of I,ROBOT in century theatres.

They showed flashbacks from M.Night's previous classics and then the set of village. Everyone in the theatre was like OOOH,,,looks good. When M.Night shyamalan's name was mentioned, FROM WRITER/DIRECTOR M.Night Shyamalan. So these two guys about in 30s actually started making fun of M.Night, oh look at this jerk comes again with an stupid movie. I was pissed, I didn't said anything. But a white lady with her husband in her 40s sitting like two seats next to me, turned and said to guys.  PLEASE DON'T SAY THAT, HE IS NOT A JERK. HE IS A WRITER/DIRECTOR WITH ORIGINAL STORIES THAT CONTAINS NO SEX, AND BRUTAL VIOLENCE. His movies are connected to everyone's lives on earth. The husband calmed his wife and said, its okay its okay. The guys apologized. And after 20s minutes they left the movie. TRUTH HURTS.

The Village is a classic, I got spooked from the village. And all the people in theatre while I was the village seemed very interested to the plot. The moment IVY came back to Luscious, end credits rolled, people applaude. CLAP their hands and me as well.

Lady in the water had too many kids when I went to watch. It had scary jumps that made you jump. I never went to watch Lady by thinking that its a horror movie.

People think wrong when they see "M.Night Shyamalan's" name. They think his movie is a SCARY and horror. That's why M.Night requested from studios not to mention his previous works in his any new trailor.

And M.Night's career will not be over. Someone I heard or read stating that M.Night's career will be over the THE HAPPENING doesn't work.

Rohan

Even if The Happening doesn't work out he's still got an entire trilogy to make after that. The Avatar creators are very pleased with what he's got so far, and there will be quite a crowd when it comes out.

Think about it; Night's fanbase PLUS the Avatar fanbase! And other people too.

His career is far from over. He's just gotten started. Some people just dislike him a lot, and it's wishful thinking on their part when they try to predict his future without looking at the things he still has ready to do, and that other significant people are in on with him too. They need to look past their own dislike and look closer at the facts.

By the way, excellent posts, this is a great board and I check it each time I come on.  I think one thing people are mixing up is what defines horror.  I think there are two types, there is horror-like ring, grudge, just scary stuff, and then there is slasher-stuff like saw, hostel, just films where lots of blood and gore fly.  Shyamalan is going to direct a horror film, not slasher, there will be violence, yes, but that won't be the point of the film.  Yes, Shyamalan is setting up films for the future so he should be good.  It wont be the end of his career.  That's one of my problems with slasher flicks and movies like that, they ruin people's sense of art.  I don't want to attack their decisions and art is dependent upon your viewpoint but those films cauterize people.  Hollywood makes movies, they are considered art, so people view them that way, but the are all about the flash, bang, blood, explosions.  People then watch a movie like Shyamalan's and think, man, that's boring, but his movies are the movies that stick with, you can study them, analyze them, feel emotion for the characters, their decisions, the movie sticks with you.  There, you have it, my rant.

I've been debating with myself about this too. You made a good point, we're fans, we're gonna see the movie... so why ruin it by watching the trailer?

Trailers nowadays give away way too much information. Just look at the Lady in the Water trailer (not teaser). Large portions of that trailer contain scenes from the last 5 minutes of the film!!! And the 2nd trailer is even worse.
My brain is telling me that watching the trailer for this film, which I know I want to see, doesn't make sense. It will end up damaging the experience I'm gonna have in the theater, and yet for some reason I would I really want to watch one.

I'm gonna try my best to not watch this trailer (and teaser for that matter), and I'd really love to have some partners to join me... we'll be like a support team.  ;D

Imagine if we got to see the movie right now... what would it be like to watch the movie this very instant?.... that's what seeing the movie without watching the trailer will be like! I think it will be a much better, and pure, viewing experience.

For all those who will be participating in not watching any trailers for The Happening...How would you know if you are about to watch the trailer? I mean, if you go to the theaters to watch a movie and the teaser for M. Night's movie comes on, would you close your eyes and cover your ears? Or run out of the theater?

Oh, and I respect everyone's opinions on the misleading or NOT misleading trailers.
Before I became a "real" M. Night fan, I was your average movie-goer. When I saw the trailers for The Village, I was convinced this movie was going to be a real creep-fest!...Of course, as it turns out, it wasn't...Which explains the 60+ drop in the box office the following weekend...I WAS mis-leaded. I still enjoyed it, but nowhere as much as his first three. The same goes for Lady in the Water. His first 3 were advertised correctly, I don't see why they had to go and change it for The Village and Lady in the Water. Unbreakable wasn't advertised as a scary movie, so when I watched it, I wasn't expecting to get scared.

Anyway, I can't wait for The Happening teaser! I'm VERY excited!...By the way, I do believe it will be a horror movie...It is going to be rated R. If lots of blood and gore doesn't mean horror, I don't know what does. Again, I respect everyone's opinions. ;D

Hopefully they will run the logos before footage starts. Most trailers do that. I will be suspicious when I see Fox and UTV logos. Not to mention the Blinding Edge logo. And now it seems I'll need to be suspicious if I see Fox + Spyglass Ent. logos.

And if it does so happen that I am in the theater when a The Happening trailer plays, idk. I might just say "well, I tried".... or I might actually close my eyes... and maybe cover my ears.  :-\

I guess I won't know for sure until it happens.  :P

Yea, it will be hard, but I am going to try and do everything not to watch it.  By the way, I think horror is more psychological, then there is slasher which is lots of blood and gore.  That doesn't mean there won't be some in the Happening, just not copious amounts.

Could the trailer play in front of Alien vs Predator Requiem? It's also an R-rated 20th Century Fox release.

I think we've mentioned it before, but that was a while ago. This suggestion is getting the same type of buzz that we had with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire back when we were wondering what film Lady would be attached to.

*GASP* I have a gut feeling it could be!!!...*Sigh*...But do I really have to buy a ticket to watch this potentially terrible movie, just to watch a teaser trailer that will last about 30 seconds at most???...Maybe, I'll just wait for it to arrive on the internet! Lol. ;D
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on December 11, 2007, 12:10:16 AM
The teaser should be longer than 30 secs for sure. Probably somewhere between a minute and a minute 30 secs. And I'm sure it'll hit the internet that same night, probably in HD Quicktime. If not that night, by the end of the week.

Reliable source sounds to LIEABLE source. No offense to SANFORD. Lots of rumors comes out all the time. I don't think. First, its too early for a teaser trailor. If there is going to be a trailor then production is weak.

My prediction is may be around february...

I love Lord of The Rings. All three movies. But I didn't chose it cause its in Lord of the rings. Its my name since my childhood.

I am Afghan. Its not an Afghan name either. Its Indian. When I was a child I was in elementary school and kids never pronounced my Afghan name right. One day, one kid called me, Rohan, I will call you Rohan, he said. I got mad though, then teachers said its okay, it usually means HEALING. ASCENDING. And I liked it. Till now friends knows me as Rohan and I love it.

I kinda agree with that, I have a feeling hes gonna wait a little but longer before he releases it. I bet they will wait for Fox's next big movie, and release the teaser on opening night of that. We just have to play the waiting game now  :-[

The new rumor is that The Happening trailer might air during the Super Bowl. It's been confirmed that 20th Century Fox will be placing an advertisement for one of it's movies during the Super Bowl, but they aren't revealing which one.

Thoughts?
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?

Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?

Wow. That's a good way of promotion...

Sure is. Last years Super Bowl averaged 93 million viewers and approx. 139 million viewers that watched at least part of the game.

This year the price for running a 30-sec ad during the Super Bowl is estimated around $3 million dollars. If they were to run a normal teaser, it would be at the cost of close to $9 million dollars.  :o
Although the Fox network is airing the Super Bowl, maybe the parent company, News Corp, could force Fox Network to give 20th Century Fox a break.  ;)

Night trailer!  I will have to tape it!  I need TIVO!!!!

Having a DVR like TiVo has changed the way I watched TV. If it's within anyone's budget, I highly recommend it. Some cable companies offer DVR boxs for as little as $5 a month (depending on which services you already have).

Although I must stress that this is just a rumor. Look how everyone got excited about the trailer being in front of AVPR just to get disappointed in the end. Don't get your hopes up until we confirm it. Specter, BenKim or myself will post news on the front page as soon as we find anything out.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?

Well, looking ahead, The Happening may be the front-runner for a Super Bowl TV Spot.  Especially when one looks at the Comingsoon.net preview of 20th Century Fox movies for 2008.  (From Comingsoon.net: http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=40438):

ComingSoon.net has received 20th Century Fox's 2008 preview. To view info on each movie, just select the titles, and to see the images, click on 'View Pics' (release dates are subject to change):

January 11
27 Dresses (View Pics)

January 25
Meet the Spartans (View Pics)

August 29

Seeing as how this was given to them by 20th Century Fox, the top 3 candidates would be The Happening, Jumper, and Horton Hears a Who. Jumper is an action movie, so it might appeal to the male crowd that predominantly watches the Super Bowl.  I dont know, but it just seems odd that they would  just give  The Happening a Super Bowl TV Spot without any sort of pre-Super Bowl Trailer/Advertisement

If it were to air during the Super Bowl, that means I'd have to not watch the Super Bowl. LOL.

I still think I am going to skip watching the trailer. Although, it would love to see what 100 million other people are seeing (if it were to air during the super bowl)
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?

I'm still planning on not watching the trailer, but it gets harder everyday I wait.  I want to see it so bad.  Also I am a comics book (Marvel) fan and the Incredible Hulk comes out the same Friday, there still isn't a preview out for it.  I think that when a preview comes out for that we might see a preview for The Happening.  Also, I am on the inside loop with Marvel and some production companies, as in I get information before it becomes available to the general public, so I might be able to find out when a trailer is due out.

From this list that you posted my guess would be that The Happening would be the one to get viewed on the Super bowl.  All the other ones sound sucky and I have already seen trailers for Jumper a few times on TV.  So why wouldnt it be M. Night to get the promotion?
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?

It could be Jumper just because it will be coming out first.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on January 16, 2008, 09:59:27 AM
Yea, it is coming out first, plus it is an action movie, with lots of drunk guys, and girls watching the Super Bowl, an action film will be much more attractive then an scary, psychological film, directed by what the critics think is a complete failure.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on January 16, 2008, 01:59:49 PM
Considering the worldwide release they were planning for The Happening, I think it needs Super Bowl type marketing. It can be sold as an 'event' movie... something that is a 'must see.'

Jumper can't be sold that way IMO.

Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on January 17, 2008, 09:41:51 AM
Yea, I had forgot about the worldwide release thing.  I don't know, I think though I'll just wait till the Super Bowl and see.  Though that doesn't stop me speculating about when the preview will come out.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Lifeordeath1 on January 17, 2008, 11:25:49 AM
I could certainly see drunk people making fun of it.  I can see them now, sitting in their recliners, all in a 'U' shape in front of the big screen, and The Happening comes on.  They are mezmorized until about halfway through.  Then the phrases pop up "A film by M. Night Shyamalan" and everyone says "What!?  Not again, this guy sucks!  The only good thing he has ever made is that movie... whats it called?  The one with the kid who sees dead people, know what Im talking about?"  Someone answers "Yeah, I think it was called HOME ALONE, with that Macaulay Culkin kid."  The fist guy responds "Yeah thats it!  That movie sucked!"

So i could see how Jumper would be a better fit for the action crowd.  People have always wanted to teleport, right?
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on January 17, 2008, 11:43:57 AM
I really hope they don't use Shyamalan's name as a marketing device. It's a poor idea that hasn't worked well, but somehow I think they'll manage to believe "third time is the charm" and plaster "M. Night Shyamalan" all over the freakin thing.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?

Agreed.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on January 18, 2008, 10:01:23 AM
Yea, that shouldn't do that, maybe even for the first preview they should leave his name out entirely just use Mark Whalberg, what with him being in The Departed and Shooter lately.  I know that probably wouldn't sit well with Shyamalan, but still, you could get a bad reaction.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on January 18, 2008, 12:00:58 PM
I think they ought to mention the fact that Mark Wahlberg is an Oscar nominated actor, and Shyamalan is an Oscar nominated writer and director. They could also throw in the fact that John Leguizamo is an Emmy winner and Golden Globe nominee.

If your gonna use names to sell your movie, at least point out some notable achievements like that.

Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on January 20, 2008, 03:15:19 PM
Who knows, hey anybody out there, do you know why they didn't put information like that into Shyamalan's trailers.  My guess is that Shyamalan likes to keep his trailers very neat and running on his name, not awards.  That's my guess.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on January 20, 2008, 05:39:03 PM
I think it's not as gimmicky as running on his name or his past movies. Plus we know from the Signs DVD special features that Night thinks mentioning his previous films creates a distrust in the movie.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Lifeordeath1 on January 21, 2008, 12:56:52 PM
OK.  So I saw Cloverfield yesterday and there was no trailer for The Happening.  Wasnt expecting one at all and figured there wouldnt be, but... I guess I got my hopes to high.

Anyway, did anyone watch the Green Bay Packers game last night?  They showed a trailer for Jumper.  It was a long trailer.  Since we were speculating on what trailer was going to be shown on the SB, do you think it could still be Jumper since it was shown last night on that game?  I mean it wouldnt be a surprise if they did show it again, but it just got me wondering now what it might be.  Anymore news on what it might be?

I seriously doubt it's the Wolverine film. According to IMDb.com, that film doesn't come out until May of 2009, so why would they spend a couple million in advertising during the Super Bowl when it comes out more than a year later? I'm betting it's The Happening that plays. If it doesn't, I'll be driving my car into a tree and slitting my wrist in the middle of a road.

You might be mixing it up with The Incredible Hulk which also comes out June 13th.

Ok thanks. Hah, I'd much rather him be competing with The Hulk than Dark Knight.

I have a prediction in regards the release for "The Happening" teaser. We already said it might be released during "Superbowl" or there is a possibility they show it in front of Fox Movies new horror flick "Shutter" in March 2008.

You may be right Rohan. I think it would be smarter for Fox to place it in front of their movie Jumper cause it will likely be more successful.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on January 31, 2008, 09:46:51 AM
I'm glad The Happening is competing with The Incredible Hulk instead of The Dark Knight also.  I also think they should place the preview in front of Jumper, because I think Jumper will be more succesful.

Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on January 31, 2008, 11:09:19 AM
I'm not that thrilled about The Happening competing directly with The Incredible Hulk. Now if it was a direct sequel to the last film, I wouldn't care. I'd rather The Happening be the one thing that people should even contemplate thinking about seeing that weekend.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Sanford on January 31, 2008, 02:28:02 PM
I feel the same way. I've been hoping for the past couple of months that The Incredible Hulk would move its release date, much the same way that Catwoman did in 2004 with The Village, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. There's still a small possibility it could, considering no advertisements are to be seen anywhere, but oh well. I'll laugh myself silly if they do open head to head and The Happening beats the hell out of The Incredible Hulk. How crazy would that be?
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on January 31, 2008, 05:51:16 PM
That would be crazy.  I wish the Incredible Hulk wasn't doing a head on release with The Happening also, but that's the way things are, I plan on seeing both that day.  It's just not very good for both movies when two potential powerhouses open on the same day.

What the heck?  If I want to see the teaser I have to go see Jumper?  Im sorry but I dont think I can take anymore of
Hayden Christensen ...  Anakin Skywalker's acting.  His acting in the trailer even looks horrible!  How this kid keeps getting gigs is beyond me.  Oh well, I know a friend who can get me in for free... so not all is loss.   ;D
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on February 02, 2008, 11:58:12 AM
Well, according to our source the teaser will hit the internet that same day. So... you don't really need to go see Jumper if you don't want to.

About Hayden Christiansen, he's only a terrible when directed terribly. I think he was really good in Shattered Glass, and I thinks most critics would agree with that.

Anyways, Jumper looks like it will be decent. The concept seems fun and entertaining at the very least.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on February 02, 2008, 02:44:08 PM
Yea, I'm going to go see it with a friend.  I think it looks good.  I think Hayden Christiansen is an okay actor, it just depends on his part.  I think he will be good in this, interesting concpet.  Anyway, so what, 12 days until The Happening trailer, cool, I can't wait.

Yes, Cloverfield was awesome, but "Cloverfield" is not a 20th Century Fox release. The word is out that "The Happening" teaser will be played before "Jumper". And  if not, then  I am sure it will play in front of 20th Century Fox's upcoming March Release 'Shutter'. I already saw "Shutter" trailor it's spooky. Looks good and better than Grudge.

The movie preview for the super bowl is obviously going to be jumper now, esp. since Samuel Jackson was on the SB red Carpet talking to Ryan Seacrest.  That would be my guess.  Darn.  No Happening.  I knew it anyway.  Oh well.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?

It's still a promotion .. whatever that gets on slowly... if you compare it with other movies. Most of the time we should already have seen something.

Yea, I'll keep an eye on those movies also.  Yea, the preview during the Super Bowl was Jumper, so hopefully more people will see it and watch The Happening preview.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on February 04, 2008, 12:15:58 PM
More and more I am feeling optimistic about Jumper. At first I totally wanted to skip it, but now it looks like it will be fun. I guess I don't expect to get much out of it other than that, but still, it should be entertaining.

However, I don't want to see The Happening trailer, so now I won't go to see Jumper in theaters.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Lifeordeath1 on February 04, 2008, 10:36:25 PM
Can anyone really hold off on the teaser?  You posted it Malcome, did you watch it?  I didnt, I made myself.  I really want to see it on Jumper though.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?

I have not watched the trailer. For the first 3 hours I was extremely tempted, but it became much easier to avoid after some time passed.

I really don't think watching the trailer is a big deal. It really wasn't "AMAZING." It was pretty good and very short. I suggest you all watch it. It will not ruin the movie for you all in any way...In fact, it will enhance your interest in it at most.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Orandhite on February 06, 2008, 11:14:04 AM
I think if my interest were to be enhanced any more I would explode!  :D

I did click the link at the root of this site to watch the trailer, but it had been removed.  I'm just not going out of my way to go find it though...  :)

Hey Malcome Crow! 
Just wanted to say thanks for the recommend on the "Shattered Glass"/Haden Christianson film!  I really like it!  Thought it was very well done!  And... of course... Haden was really good.  Very nice, very nice. 

Why the heck was he so crappy in Star Wars???  Is George Lucas really that bad an director?  Did he just have talented actors in the first original 3?

Anyway, I want to see 'Jumper' now!  Even though it looks a little quirky, I saw some of the behind the scene previews and that was lots of fun!

Again thanks!  The movie was great!  Put together very well!  I recomend it to anyone!  True story as well!  Nice!
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on February 10, 2008, 08:14:20 PM
Cool beans! I'm glad you enjoyed Shattered Glass.

I don't want to get too far off topic but, only the first of the original 3 Star Wars films was directed by Lucas. Maybe that helps solve the puzzle.  ;)
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on February 10, 2008, 10:05:04 PM
George Lucas is a great producer, not a good director.  Hayden Christensen is only a good actor if he has the right role, which is fine, just make sure he gets the right role.  I am pretty sure the trailer is going to be in front of Jumper, everything seems to point to it.
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on February 10, 2008, 10:27:52 PM
I just realized it's going to be harder to not watch this trailer if when it comes out people are saying "wow, that was better than the leaked teaser!"
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?

It will be, but we can stick together and get through it.  I think it will be better then the teaser though.

I'm going to see Jumper next thing in the morning.. But I'm still in doubt if I will or will not close my eyes and ears when it might come by....

I live in the Netherlands.. so I can watch Jumper a few hours earlier... then most. I will report in case it comes by. Oooh no.. haha I wasn't going to watch it, so I can't report.

I also heard the trailer attached to Jumper is different than the leaked one that hit the web last week. We're not sure how different at this point, but it's not exactly the same for sure.

The trailer I saw at Jumper today was the exact opposite of the one I saw online this week. The online trailer suggested a graphic violence orgy with no real purpose (IMHO), and didn't seem like something I'd go see. The Jumper trailer certainly indicated an ominous and scary story, but it also suggested more about the plot and the characters, and was much more appealing as a story.

Fox just wants people to go watch and spend money on that (from what I've heard) terrible movie, Jumper. I don't think I'll spend $10.00 just to see the trailer for "The Happening." Luckily, I saw it online! Yay!
Title: Re: Teaser coming soon?
Post by: marco on February 16, 2008, 01:10:57 PM
If that is true,then they probably should put it online a week or two after Jumper comes out at theatres,but that's not sure.
Don't know what else to expect,now  ;D
