    What is it with M. Night Shyamalan's need to have something to do with water in the majority of all his movies? LOL

    @thedude-abides - I'm glad he turned down The Matrix and Keanu got the role. It wouldn't have been the same.

    @mbrandon11 I know what I'm getting with M. Night at this point. I'll see this movie simply for discussion purposes.

    @dan1 You are dead on about Smith's career. It's been subpar since Pursuit of Happyness, and the reason is obvious.

    It's funny, I haven't liked one of his films, but I keep getting interested in M. Night Shyamalan's new projects. I want to like them but I'm always let down.

    @mbrandon11...I'll give the movie a chance, im just sayin it bugs me a bit that of recent when one Smith is involved, the other is somehow also, here are examples

    Men in Black 2- Will starred, Jaden did a cameo

    All of Us- TV show loosely based on Will and Jada's family, Will and jada were creators and executive producers, Jaden appeared in season one

    Pursuit of Happyness- Will produced and starred, Jaden co-starred

    The Karate Kid- Jaden starred, Will and Jada were producers

    After Earth- Will stars, Jaden co-stars, Will as producer

    ...and probably soon Amulet- Jaden and Willow Smith starring, Will as producer

    @mb11 No. I've given up on the guy. Fail after fail after fail. Not going to invest my hopes n wishes into M. Night anymore. And Smith's obsession with having his kids in everything he does has brought his career down since Pursuit of Happyness in my eyes. The guy is meh to me now.

    This particular direct has a different method and ways to approach his projects that tends to not really work out as much as they should. Will Smith is the one string that's holding this one up for The Mime. But who knows, this just might work out.

    @dan1 Amen to that. Will Smith turned down Django for this crap simply because his son was offered the role. I predict it will be just as bad a career move as when he turned down The Matrix for Wild West West.

    @dan1 What if this becomes his comeback?

    No more benefit of the doubt from me. F*ck M. Night, and forget Will Smith.

    Does Jaden have to be in everything his father is involved in, wether Will is starring or producing a film, Jaden is never far behind...are there no young black actors that can play Wills sons besides his actual son

    @thedude1 - Yeah, you pretty much beat me to it. However, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. This could very well be his comeback......hopefully, anyway.

    Let's just hope that he has learned from the past few distasters he's made.

    Could be a good movie but Shyamalan's movies have been awful lately.
