    LOS ANGELES, March 11 — Tired of abuse by mankind, the earth is angry. Worse, the planet is out to even the score.

    Audiences can expect a story along those lines when M. Night Shyamalan’s film “The Happening” reaches screens in the next year. The project, to which 20th Century Fox signed on last week, imagines a planet that is starting to act like the vigilante Travis Bickle from “Taxi Driver.”

    “The Happening” will not be the only big-budget studio film to test a new kind of villainy, in which the real victim is the environment, and, whatever the plot variations, the enemy is all of us. Beginning this summer and for months after, movies as diverse as the “The Simpsons Movie,” “Transformers,” a remake of “Creature From the Black Lagoon,” and James Cameron’s “Avatar” will take on environmental themes.

    And so the process of conditioing us to think we're all nothing more than destructive parasites continues.

    Sounds as exciting as "Attack of the Giant Killer Tomatoes" back in the 60's.

    Is it just me, or can anybody else hear Don LaFontaine, "King of the Movie Trailers"?

    "In a world, where the world has had enough. It's payback time... with a vengeance!"

    AAAAAK! I remember that movie! Part of the theme song went, "I know I'm gonna miss her. A tomato ate my sister." :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
