i more excited for the happening than any other movie ever.


ITS almost common sense not to release a movie like THE HAPPENING, along side a natural blockbuster...like a marvel movie.
the hulk already has an incredible fan base...(you like that word play or what).....

ALTHOUGH THE HUMAN RACE HAS DUMBED THEMSELVES DOWN A LOT IN THE PAST FEW YEARS IN THE HORROR GENRE.need is say it....gore porn.....(TERRIBLE CRAP IF YOU ASK ME)

i just think that the only shot at this movie doing well against a colossalmovie like the hulk......(here i go again)......  is to promote it like hell as a terror fest....haha

i just hope that it does well and Night gets the credit he deserves.


any thoughts?????

yeah, push back the Hulk. I like the release date for The Happening, it makes sense. I'm not excited about Hulk, especially after reading up on the whole dispute between Ed Norton and Marvel.

I agree. Ed is one of my favorites, but I really want them to push ahead a week atleast. No disrespect to the makers of the Hulk, but it doesn't have that taste of eagerness as much as the very first one had when I really really wanted to watch. This Hulk looks good, but I don't know why I don't have the feeling to watch on big screen. And since its releasing with the same date as "The Happening" there is no way I am ditching "The Happening", its happening so let it happen, Hulk might not get
there where its makers wants it, thats what I think.

I agree, I think they should move the Incredible Hulk back a week, though I'm hoping to watch both the same day.  I think both movies will do well, it just wouldn't be wise to put two potential blockbusters on the same night of release, bad idea.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

I don't what will be the outcome of the box office earnings after the 13th. M.Night proved it before that his characters can climb on stacks of BENJAMINS on weekends. Signs and The Sixth Sense did awesome when no one believed it.

Now since the green monster is going versus the mother nature, it will be fun and in the meantime its pretty scary. That hulk is one mean guy and M.night is one sick man, who can scare the hell out of us.

I want both movies to do very well.

So do I, but I think it's bad marketing too schedule two blockbusters on the same night of release.  I honestly think this new hulk will do well, so competing with The Happening isn't going to help either film.

It is bad marketing, but its also called GAMBLING. Last Hulk wasn't that pissed off according what the studio wanted. They made it this time different and really a pissed one that well take out lots money from people's pockets.

In the other hand, The Happening is one unique concept and its totally original and lets see how much people care about originality. I am sure 20th century Fox knew that "Hulk" is releasing on the 13th as well. Plus, they won't back down and M.night doesn't want to back down either. So, Hulk will not be competting its enemies, but the nature of THE HAPPENING as well.

Lets just wait for the last promotional tactic of M.Night when the movie is about to release in theatres. We have already witnessed gigantic posters and card boards of the happening in the theatres. The theatre close to my home, I went there, dude that card board of "The Happening" is huge, just huge. You can fit inside those cars in the poster.

So, once again. It is bad marketing, but still it is good marketing.

I'm no box office analyst (although I do like to read up on past results to help me predict future outcomes) but from what I've heard around town and around my school, NOBODY is excited for The Hulk, including myself, and EVERYONE wants to see The Happening. A lot of my classmates think it looks extremely intense. The same goes for many others I've spoken to. Nobody is very interested in TIH, but they're all really excited for The Happening.

So, I while I still don't think it's very wise to schedule two big films for the same day (just for the record, The Happening was scheduled before Hulk was if memory serves correctly) I still think The Happening will do better than people think, and Hulk won't SMASH (heh) like people are thinking. But that's just me. We'll see in the next few weeks as the marketing game really heats up. The weekend of June 13th will certainly be an interesting one.

At my job, when we talk about the movies, no one is really looking forward to watch Hulk. And me too. Lets wait for june the 13th, what will HAPPEN.

I plan on watching the Hulk, and I think it will do well, but I'm also a comic book nerd, so, but definately and waiting in agony for The Happening.
