Well, now I really don't need to see it.

Re: "Devil"

That's a pretty good trailer, but it looks like it could be a very stupid movie.

Re: "Devil"

It looks like the type of movie with very stereotypical characters that do nothing but get on your nerves until they are slowly killed off.

Well it played in front of Salt last weekend and like the other 6 trailers got zero reaction one way or the other.

I don't doubt the Comic Con moans/laughter cause groups like that think its 'hip' to do. I know I've sat in there and heard them. As for a regular theater moaning I've never heard moans on any film, excitement yes, moans no. Who the hell are these snobs?
Nerd audience reactions are definitely not a finger on the pulse of the cinema-going public.

Maybe this writer/director will surprise us and surpass M. Night's ability as a storyteller.

Already mentioned the name of the second along with the writer attached to it on page one of this thread. No word on a director yet for "The Twelve Strangers".

I'd love to see that movie. Interesting variation on the old concept of looking at Christian mythology through the lens of 'history is written by the victors'.

So far as I'm aware the films are connected only by Shyamalan's involvement.

Cue another dozen 'I hate Shyamalan' posts...

Re: "Devil"

Again Shyamalan has come up with the stories for each of the three films in the so called "Midnight Chronicles" while each film with have their own writer and director.

Re: "Devil"

The audience groan at the appearance of Shyamalan's name has been caught on video: Here

It seems to be a widely noticed phenomenon. Check out all the Google hits I got when searching for "Shyamalan groan."

As a huge fan of The Sixth Sense and an admirer of Unbreakable, I feel bad for the guy. He showed promise in his earlier films, and man I was hoping The Last Airbender would prove to be his comeback. Dang.

Well I discovered the hot daughter from Edge of Darkness is in it, and that in reality she's an Aussie, but I still won't go see this.

Awesome movie, passibly good movie along with signs (other than the giant plot hole in it.)

But since then he's been a spiral downward of suck.

It'd be really funny if that WAS the twist of the movie.

Re: "Devil"

I saw this trailer in the theater today. It looked vaguely interesting until I saw the "M. Night Shyamalan" card, then I rolled my eyes.

It made me think of a Saw movie, only without the Rube Goldberg death contraptions.
