Thanks for the link to the NPR interview! It was really interesting - I was able to listen to it even though it isn't 6:00 yet...
That was probably good for the advertising for the movie too. A lot of people listen to NPR, and if they know that it's not just some mindless slasher film, they might decide to go see it.

Yeah, that NPR interview was really interesting. Really makes me wonder about the ending of the film. Now I don't know what to expect.

This NPR interview so far is the best interview for "The Happening". It deals more with nature and possibilities of "The Happening".

That was a really great interview.  I love how he has based the ideas of this film in actual scientific foundations, rather than just pure making-it-up type stuff.  I always think that movies that base their scary stuff in reality makes it all the more terrifying.

 I also thought it was cool how Night was on "Science Friday" and was really capable of keeping up and having a good conversation with a guy who sounded really,really smart (he is the host of Science Friday after all) about sciece-type stuff..

Cool interviews. 

The NPR interview was really interesting and for a second Night was on the line about Einstein being a believer (that biography isn't a sincere effort....he should have looked into that a bit more before reading it).

Anyways.....I'm a fan and I'll overlook this.

Awesome interview! Thanks for sharing.

Since he will be doing 3 Avatar films, I would rather he not do Life of Pi and instead return to an original screenplay - however, it will make a great film.

Love the interview. Good questions and good answers.

The bashing wasn't about 'THE LADY' it was about M.Night. Its true. The movie is a great movie.

Any Twist in THE HAPPENING? - NO. Honestly.  :o   Cool....

M.Night's INDIAN ACCENT.  :D

M.Night next original script, I think I know a little about it.  ::)

in the ign video it was hecka funny when he said like...
(im paraphrasing)
"Avatar has all the topics I love...hindu philosophies...buddhist philopsophies... martial arts...cgi...genocide...."


and i was like WHAT??? GENOCIDE!???

he didnt mean it that way.
and he explains it in the next part of the sentence


but overall good interview
interviewer asked good questions.

That's funny  :D.

But it is, sort of. The Avatar is the last Airbender, and that's because the Fire Nation wiped the rest of them out.

Sorry if I'm just repeating what M. Night said in the interview, I haven't had time to watch it yet :).

That was a nice interview, and I really hope this movie does well, for Night's sake.  He just isn't this bad guy so many think he is.
