M. Night Shyamalan‘s new film After Earth opens this week, and while the studio is doing a great job hiding his “directed by” credit, no amount of Big Willy can erase the stink of Shyamalan. We’ve assembled a panel to figure out what really is the worst M. Night Shyamalan film ever made. We were only able to narrow it down to three.

In a recent interview with Men’s Journal, Mark Wahlberg claimed that things would have gone much differently on September 11th had he been travelling on one of the doomed planes with his children. Namely, that there would be “a lot of blood in the first-class cabin” and he would eventually announce to the cabin “Ok we’re going to land somewhere safely. Don’t worry.” 

The fictitious passengers in Wahlberg’s mind would stop worrying, put on a brave face, then, after collecting Cinnabon and neck pillows from the emergency airport, they would continue on to their final destination while watching The Happening and Four Brothers, unaware that the war on terror was over before it began.

Kudos to Men’s Journal for their interview tactics. Let this be a lesson to aspiring journalists – if you ever want to make national news with your dumb little interview, ask the famous subject what he or she would have done differently to save the country from 9/11. Gold, Men’s Journal. Gold.

UPDATE: It would appear that Wahlberg realized his comments may have offended pretty much everyone, so he issued this apology. That was issued quickly. Probably as quickly as he would have taken down those terrorists on that plane.

There goes my clout.

At a press conference over the weekend for Mark Wahlberg‘s upcoming film The Fighter, the actor let loose on M. Night Shyamalan and a certain piece of cinema known as The Happening. Collider has the delicious story of when Wahlberg met with Fighter co-star Amy Adams:

We had actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie and it was a bad movie that I did. She dodged the bullet. And then I was still able to … I don’t want to tell you what movie … alright “The Happening.” Fuck it. It is what it is. Fucking trees, man. The plants. Fuck it. You can’t blame me for not wanting to try to play a science teacher. At least I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn! Night got told! It’s nice to see that Wahlberg has the balls to call out his awful, AWFUL collaboration. Although I don’t understand his strong desire to play a science teacher. Sure, it’s not a crook or a cop, but it’s a science teacher in a movie where you try to outrun the wind. You didn’t read the script, did you Mark? Come on, you can tell me. Nothing leaves the SJ circle of trust ;)
