This info is from Box Office Mojo:

Yesterday's box office total was: $12,800,000
The Happening at #2 with The Incredible Hulk with #21,030,000.

The Happening is well on its way to recouping its budget of $57 million.
The movie opened at 2,987 theaters.

Yesterday's numbers beat the expectations that were putting this movie at $24 million dollars for the whole weekend. Now expections have been changed for $28-32 million.

Its Almost Here!

So a "source" tells me the Premier for The Happening will be in New York City which I find odd considering the fact that the movie was mostly filmed in Philadelphia but oooo well.

We have a sorta review from The Miami Herald here is the link:
The reviewer gives the movie an ok review, this also confirms the fact the 20th Century Fox is presenting Preview screenings. Hey wheres are tickets to the advanced screening! haha

Also lots of press for The Happening so here we go!

First this is just about all the Broadway actors that are appearing in this film: has an interview with M. Night, you can view it by clicking the link below: has a good story about Shyamalan:

Also has an audio interview with Shyamalan:

Last week I got an e-mail about watching FX tonight at 11pm and I know why now. FX will be airing a special called THE HAPPENING: Taking Fear to a Whole New Level. So tune in to that and hopefully we will learn some new information on the film.

P.S. I got an e-mail from Australia and it seems like there is a lot of promotion for The Happening and Fox is really marketing it there.
