    If this fails, then all parties may have ruined their careers.

    I think that M.Night should be an actor for now on, unless he's terrible at that too. Though I'll watch this to see what it's like.

    @thedude-abides - the fact that they went out of their way and didn't post the production peeps (like, who wrote and directed it) is telling you something. I'll gladly pass unless this is a 95% or better. Since I saw Airbender when it was 5%, I think that's fair :P

    @bawnian-dexeus No doubt. A lot of people don't like it, or group it in with Lady in the Water, The Happening, and Airbender, which is a huge oversight, in my opinion.

    @thedude-abides Agreed. The Village was his last great story. Biggest WTF at the time.

    @dan1 It's a love/hate thing with me. It's hard for me to totally dismiss him as a director given the amazing films he put out early on in his career. But, there again, it's hard for me to look past the fact that his career over the past six years or so has been a complete and total abomination. I'm like you; he's going to have to prove me wrong before I change my mind (assuming that ever happens), and even then I'm going to take some winning over.

    you guys can yap all you want, only reason why this might hit over $100 million in the US is because of Will Smith....Shymalan struggled so damn much and these futuristic movies, he trying to make it look as great as Avatar

    looks like 10,000 AD to me. I mean wheres all the land marks of man kind, building, roads, etc? And if they arent human then what are they? Another different human race? But Oblivion looks so much better, and it has all my attention. But this does look interesting

    From the looks of the Trailer it literally looks like Jaden Smith does all the Action stuff, while Will chills out.

    And at the end of the trailer Will says, "This is Earth."

    First thing that came to my mind was, "Well...There went the twist."

    Sorry, but I've given up on Shyamalan. This looks cheesy as hell, the poor mans Avatar-esque planet @narrator I agree, the cinematography completely gives away how cheap this actually is.

    Looks Good, but i will not get to excited for this since Shyamalan is directing, he has done not bad filming but terrible, if he fails with this, it will cost his career.

    I haven't had much exposure to M. Night @narrator, but I certainly agree with the cinematography bit. As cool as some scenes were, they, and Smith's somewhat stilted narration, were just unbelievable.

    Although, I did have an interesting idea in regards to the younger Smith; what if somehow during the crash he became mute and went through the rest of this movie without saying a word?

    @narrator Couldn't have said it better myself, although I did like the voice, lol. One can't knock Smith in trying to help his childrens' respective careers along; where I take exception is with the fact that he seems to be putting his own career aside in order to do so. Turning down Django is a prime example.

    Had this come from any other director, I might have been somewhat excited after watching this. However, as you so perfectly elocuted, given M. Night's recent track record, and by that I mean everything he's directed since The Village, which I loved by the way, I'll remain skeptical until I'm proven otherwise, and with good reason.

  29. the Narrator

    I'm not liking two things here: Shyamalan and the cinematography. The former has a long ways to go to get me back in his corner, and the latter is clearly digital and makes the film look ridiculously cheap. And Will Smith's new voice might be a complaint of mine as well.

    That aside, I actually liked this trailer. Simple, teasing, and the music kicked ass. Even Jaden looked pretty believable, though I notice he didn't really talk the entire trailer. If this were done by some other director and had better cinematography, I know that I'd be pretty damn excited for this film with this cast. As it is, I'm merely unsure and reluctant.
