I don't know why I had never watched The Happening but I never got around to it until a few weeks ago. Was it great? No, not really, but it was not the worst movie I ever saw. Sure, there were major gaps in the plot and no one really explained why the trees just picked one area of the country and decided the rest was ok. It seemed like the entire population of the town and that state was decimated but at the end, there did not seem to be a noticeable drop in population.
I still also don't understand why you were safe inside. Like no breeze could have got through some of the insulation on these 100 year old houses? And why was the woman at the end crazy?
Anyway, Mark Wahlberg was doing a press conference for his latest movie and talked about how Amy Adams was lucky that she managed to not have to do The Happening which she was supposed to do.
"I was such a huge fan of [Amy Adams]. We’d actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie, and it was a bad movie that I did. She dodged the bullet. I don’t want to tell you what movie… All right, The Happening with M. Night Shyamalan. It is was it is. F*cking trees, man, the plants. F*ck it. You can’t blame me for wanting to try to play a science teacher. You know? I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook."
