I haven't watched this trailer, but I have a feeling I know who it is anyways. It was becoming obvious to anyone who payed remote attention to the pictures released. Good thing they just got it out of the way.

Then I suggest you don't. Just see it in the movie where it is supposed to be shown anyway. I was kinda disappointed to see it in the trailer - too much information.

I wrote this on the main page, but thought i'd put it in the message forum as well:

That was awesome. But as excited as I was to see the trailer, I was more excited to see people's reactions to the trailer.  I went to COmingsoon.net, and all the comments seemed really excited about the movie,some even calling it a "sleeper hit" and whatnot.  It just feels good that the general public is excited for another M Night movie.

I've been reading forums for the past 24 hours, and I must say this is the smartest thing Fox and Night have done marketing wise for this movie. The buzz is very positive and has a lot of people changing their minds about seeing this movie (for the better of course).

That was good, did you see the policeman's arm shredded by the dog, or the guy getting run over by the tractor, that made me sick.  This will definatlely be intense, though with the rating I didn't think it would be that bad, but that might be the worst stuff in the movie.

I really hope Night hasn't gone over the edge with this. I'd hate to walk away from one of his movies feeling sick. His films have always shown me something that makes life seem more meaningful - which is why I respect him. It would really let me down if he made a movie that completely diverged from what he's conveyed with the beautiful imagery, dialog, and symbolism in his movies before.

That being said, I'll still hope for the best.

Actually, I won't mind it if I am sick in a good movie (unlike how I was in Cloverfield, Hannibal). A change of pace and style may be good for MNS so he doesn't continue to be typecast as a director with only one style. All I care about is that the movie is good, engaging and has a satisfying ending.

Well I guess it depends on what you mean by 'good'.

If I want to be sick, I'll just chug a bottle of dish soap. That's not what I want from M. Night Shyamalan.

Rohan, you are right, it was a mountain lion.  If he feeds himself to it, that's twisted, and scary.  I don't think it will be a gross out sick, more of a twisted, scary, hiding sick.  You know that feeling when you have such adrenilen going, and you're scared, that type of sick.

You know, I just realised why it's not going to be a gore-fest.  Because, you've seen the red band trailer, and they're not afraid to show nasty stuff in it, evidenced by the guy having his arms chewed off, so they're not holding back, but the guy that falls about 7-8 stories, there would be more damage to him then what was in the trailer.  Does anybody else agree.
Title: Re: Red Band (R-rated) trailer: Too good

I still think the whole deal with the guy feeding himself to the lion is a bit too much though.  :-\

However much the gore content is, I hope it does not portray this movie as a gore-fest when in reality the trailer may have shown all there is to show in the entire movie. I hope there is more (really) and sprinkled throughout the movie. I hate it when marketing mis-portrays the true content of the movie. For example, I would get turned off if the Indy marketers were to show extensive romantic scenes between LeBouf and whoever when in reality it is an adventure flick.

Yes, Unbroken, that is pretty nasty with the arms being chewed off, I think everybody agress on that.  BN, I totally agree, I hate mismarketing, that why I think you should view the second Red Band trailer, I think it has a good mix of what the movie will be like.

I am sure there is drama also invovled in this movie. M.Night always has awesome dramatic scenes. In the meantime, some aweome shots of people dieing on the streets. It will be a fun scary ride.

I could be way off base here,but I think he is referring to what happened when The Village came out.  The Village's marketing plan was to make it look really scary. And then people were mad because they were expecting a scary film,but instead got a thinker.

No, not based on what "The Green Effect"  script looked like.  But I can't really say whether or not its misleading because I havent seen the actual movie.
Title: Re: Red Band (R-rated) trailer: Too good
Post by: DILinator on May 27, 2008, 08:52:58 AM
I definitely feel like Shyamalan's trailers tend to be a little misleading at times, at least when it comes to the main intent of the movie.  The Village is a classic example, but even Signs looked different from what it really was, as did LITW.  The trailers always amp up the scariness of the movies beyond what they really are, so it's not out of line to think that perhaps The Happening isn't as scary, or even violent as the trailers indicate.  Obviously, you're going to see what you see in the trailer, but just because it's framed as this horrific movie, doesn't mean that's going to be the main emphasis when you actually watch the film. 
Title: Re: Red Band (R-rated) trailer: Too good
Post by: marco on May 28, 2008, 08:25:21 AM
That's right.You have to put these scenes from the trailer in the context of the movie: if the movie it's not a horror one,then these scenes will get another meaning,in my opinion.
However,this trailer is quite scary (mainly in a psichological way,I mean)  :o

I agree, that's why I think the best trailer is the second Red Band, because it gets a mix of both.  I think it will be scary, but I think the moments in the trailer will be the worst, but I plan on seeing it opening night and if people want to know what the violence is like, I'd be glad to let them know.

I rather doubt that "The Happening" will have a midnight showing, though maybe nobody was implying that it would.  I suspect that "The Incredible Hulk" will though....  :-\

I'm planning on seeing the movie it's first showing in the late morning, likely around 11:00 am sometime.  So it'll be the first screening in our area more than likely!  8)

My sister-in-law is getting married that weekend though, so chances are I won't have time to get online and post about it until either Saturday morning, or maybe even Sunday.

Well I guess it depends on what you mean by 'good'.

If I want to be sick, I'll just chug a bottle of dish soap. That's not what I want from M. Night Shyamalan.

 :) Hey mate, I have a friend who actually saw a screening, and I got both good news and bad news.

The good news: This movie is not going to be like those "Saw" movies.  It won't be a gorefest, obviously.

The bad news: The gore that is shown in this movie is the most intense, brutal, and horrific gore imaginable due to how realistic it is.  It doesn't take up much screen time, but it's enough to leave a lasting impression and make one sick to the pit of their stomach.

To be honest, I didn't want this type of movie from M. Night either, and I'll probably not go to see this one.  :( It's a shame too since I love Shyamalan's other films, even Lady in the Water!

*SPOILERS*

 :( I'm probably not going to see it because I don't like gore.  Okay, yes, I know there were some brief "gory" moments in Sixth Sense, but seriously, those weren't what I'd consider horrific compared to...

-The lady and the sewing needle, well, after she pokes it in her neck, she tears her neck open by stretching it out.
-Yes, it is a lion who tears off the limbs of the guy who feeds himself to it.
-One of the major characters towards the end of the movie skins himself, starting with his arms and ending with his face.

And these are not the only gory scenes in the movie he said, but he said that it should be enough to aide my decision.  (I was on the fence about seeing it.)  This is definitely not what I would want from an M. Night film, but I hope he is successful with it anyway. :)

I personally can't wait for this film...it is great IMO to see Night doing something diffrent. Something that could shock people.

There was a poll on comingsoon.com in which The Happening was the 3rd most anticipated film of June behind The Incredible Hulk and Wall-E. I will take 3rd behind those movies, but it shows a good chunk of people are looking foward to this.

That does sound pretty graphic and disturbing, and disgusting.  That does make me little wary of seeing it.  Though I do have one question, how did your friend see it.  Also, what you posted doesn't make sense with what the rating says.  The MPAA rating says that it is R for violent and disturbing images.  Does anybody know what Pan's Labyrinth was rated R for-graphic violence and language.  I saw Pan's Labyrinth unedited, except for the language.  There were some pretty disturbing and violent parts in that movie, but according to the rating it is worse than The Happening.  At least that's what I think it means, and I have done a little studying of the rating system.  Maybe I'll send a e-mail to MPAA, asking what they mean.  Also, I think I know which character apparently skins himself.

Sorry if I sounded harsh or mean.  I didn't mean to. ;D

I think my friend was invited to an advanced screening, first of all.  Now, the...

*SPOILERS*




That does sound pretty graphic and disturbing, and disgusting.  That does make me little wary of seeing it.

Here are the blood n gore spoilers:

1.  As mentioned, a main character skins himself.  He starts slicing away at his arms, then his legs, then all the way up to his face, will all muscles and stuff exposed.

2.  A person acts happy, as if in a retarded stupor, while a lion tears off his limbs.

3.  The lady in the trailer you see with the sewing needle, well, after she pokes that in her neck, she tears open her neck by stretching the skin.

4.  A man slits his own throat with a pair of scissors.

5.  A lady drinks a bottle of bleach and makes herself throw up.  (Could this be a nod to the fact that M. Night is reinventing the horror cinema, just like he reinvented the mystery movie with the Sixth Sense?)

6.  Don't forget the tracktor.  He didn't elaborate too much on that, but he cringed during that one too.

He said that what makes this so scary isn't how gruesome the scenes are, but the fact that the characters themselves are in no pain when doing this crap to themselves.


*EVEN MORE SPOILERS, THE ENDING*






He also mentioned that the ending is shown with a dialogue on the train about how oil is the blood of the Earth and the Earth wanted revenge against mankind.  The screen fades to black and letters flash on the screen about how the whole human population of Earth is dead. :-\

Ooh, I don't know if I like that ending.  :-\
It doesn't seem very M. Night Shyamalan-ish. Oh well.
