It's been a while since we've seen new footage of M. Night Shyamalan's 10-episode "event series" Wayward Pines, but this trailer adds a bit more outright violence and murder to the mysterioussetting. Could that be enough to save it from its earlier poor reception? I do not expect a shocking twist in this regard.

Two other thoughts: 1) M. Night Shyamalan, Matt Dillon, Juliette Lewis, Terrence Howard... that is an astounding group of Academy Award-nominated stars who in all likelihood will never, ever be nominated for an Oscar again. 2) Do we even need Wayward Pines now that Netflix is actually making a new Twin Peaks series? I feel like the answer is "no."

The series debuts on May 14th.
