  • I watched the first season halfway, got bored with it, and stopped watching it, but this may be pretty good. I've never really been a fan of M. Night Shyamalamadingdong's work, so I'm just going to have to wait for a full trailer for the film.

    And remember: If the film sucks, we can always riff it. If the film doesn't suck, we can still always riff it.

    EDIT: I just found out that this film has the current world record for Largest Film Set. There is one set in the movie that is the size of an airplane hangar.
  • M. Night Shyamalon is one of my favorite directers...but this is going too far.

    He's writing and producing it as well as directing. Clearly this is a labour of love.

    Huh. I can think of some other labors of love.

    It's also clear by the trailer he has the ego the size of a horse. (Yes, we get that Shyamalan is making this film. You don't have to beat us over the head with this info!)
  • The happening pretty much sucked, maybe hes trying to redeem himself by
    making a live action version of a kid show,he should direct Dora:The Movie

    What's wrong with the trailer?

    But isn't every big hollywood director like that?

    i.e. Michael Bay and George Lucas
  • New bit of news, photos of the main cast have been released:

    EDIT: Paramount requested the photos be taken down from the internet, so they aren't displayed anymore.
  • I can see that Jasper/Sokka still has his Twilight makeup on...
