  NO TWIST JOKES 
 
Here is the trailer for the new Shyamalan movie. Now before you dismiss it as crap let me give you one fact. Gary Whitta co wrote this movie.

I like Gary and all, but him having co-written a screenplay doesn't guarantee that it will be a good movie. He was partly responsible The Walking Dead, and i think that game is shit.

Also Book of Eli, and that was a contrived p.o.s.

Gary can talk nice about Shyamalan all he wants but that still doesn't mean that his recent track record hasn't been shit. With that said I'll probably go ahead and see this cuz it seems better than his recent work and I'll keep the expectation of a shit twist so I won't be disappointed when/if it happens.

I hope someone wakes up from an Animus at the end.

I'm pretty sure I saw an episode of the Twilight Zone similar to this. Maybe Outer Limits.

I really liked Gary Witta and Will Smith (the one from the movies, the one from Tested not so much), I have nothing against Shyamalan the last of his movies that I saw was The Village, which I found to be just fine. I have not seen the ones people say are really terrible.

But I really despise Will Smith's son (Jaden? Jared? Jason?) so I don't know if I'm going to watch this.

Gary Whitta also wrote Episode 4 of the Walking Dead and that sucked so that doesn't hold any weight for me anymore. Also Book of Eli was mediocre, there I said it.

Yeah, Whitta isn't exactly the best selling point, based on his record.

Why does Will Smith have a strange accent? Anyway it looks neat. I like how they realized putting "a film by M. Night Shyamalan" probably hurts the movie more than it helps it. But hey I'll see it. I like Sci Fi and I like Mr. Smith. Just set expectations accordingly.

I hope this is good. Gary is cool, and I like Will Smith in some stuff. However I think after the horrible The Last Airbender adaptation and The Happening, Shyamalan is almost a joke.

Also I know that the only reason that Jayden Smith is in this is because of his dad (that's fine, it's most likely Will Smith's call here and who doesn't want their kid to do well) but I feel he's being presented as "Hey look its Will Smith's kid!" compared to a Donald Glover whose talent gets him as much work as his name (if not more). Still everything deserves a chance and this one will get it.

The trailer actually doesn't look terrible, and I hope for Gary's sake the movie is good.

I'm interested. It looks like some good sci-fi, and right now, 2013 seems to be shaping up for some damn fine sci-fi between this, Oblivion, and Star Trek Into Darkness. YAY FOR NERDS!

I will share in my general dislike for Jaden Smith, though. I think a lot of that just has to do with his character in the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still being a FUCKING DOUCHE, though. As for M. Night, I'm always willing to give the guy a chance.

I'd personally rather M. Night Shymalan just work on that Devil sequel. That movie is amazing. Not good, pretty terrible, in fact, but amazing.

My thoughts exactly.

It's either that or something stupid like it all being a simulation or something. I know because I've also had these ideas for stories, before I realized they were actually terrible. Sounds right up M. Night's alley.

This movie looks bad.

Don't worry if you aren't a fan of Whitta's writing. His screenplay got a treatment from the director, M. Night Shama-llama-dingdong. I'm sure it will be fine.

Whitta is far better than M. Night Shablahblah. Anyone who's seen The Last Airbender or The Happening or Devil will tell you that.

Yeah, I thought it was either of these things. The simulation possibility really clicked when Will Smith was talking about how fear is just created by your mind, as in the simulation constructs whatever the boy is afraid of to test him.

I still have hope for Gravity, Oblivion, Elysium, and Star Trek though.

And yet Whitta never made Signs, The Sixth Sense, or Unbreakable.

Cool. Those are good movies. But the most recent one is ten years old. Doesn't change the fact that since then, M. Night has been shoveling out shit movies. And Whitta has a single film under his belt that I found to be pretty decent. I'd give Whitta my money over M. Night any day. And that's saying something because I fucking love The Sixth Sense.
