In this new trailer from M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening, Marky Mark wants bored schoolkids to think about why all the Earth's honeybees are vanishing. The trouble is, unless you've got a video of giant robots decimating swarms of bees with lasers, the schoolkids just won't care. But once everyone starts dropping dead in their tracks, you can bet they'll start paying attention. Snotty little whiners.
We're still on the fence about this flick, but it looks marginally like Signs 2. Only this time the aliens are the plants that we've been sharing the planet with all these years. Looks like they finally got pissed off about all the pollution and the vegetarians. Watching this reminds us that Shyamalan's Unbreakable was a great movie that got slammed for being too slow and unexciting, but in retrospect is well worth a second (and third) viewing. However, Signs never stops us from asking why aliens would come to a world coated in something that is severely lethal to them. We hope The Happening doesn't have similar plotholes in it.
