After the disappointing box office of Lady in the Water, some may be saying "why should I care about M. Night Shyamalan's new film?" Personally, I didn't see Lady in the Water, a decision based in part on my extreme dissatisfaction with The Village, but I have to think that the guy behind a genuinely great film (The Sixth Sense), a pretty damn good one (Signs), and one that ain't half bad (Unbreakable) has to have something else up his sleeve. I'm just hoping he's gotten past his over-reliance on the twist ending. His attempts in The Village at being the modern O. Henry reminded me more of a melted Snickers.

Shyamalan's latest movie The Happening is currently shooting in Philadelphia with Mark Wahlberg, Zooey Deschanel and John Leguizamo. A few weeks ago posted some cell phone photos taken on the set. Now they have plot details and one decent sized spoiler from what they're calling a "trustworthy source," so if you don't want the plot details spoiled, then read no further. As an extra bit of security, I'm saving the spoilers for after the jump.
