(mbc.net) In New York's Central Park a strange epidemic begins.  Thousands of individuals are committing suicide en masse in a plague that slowly infects most of the Northeast.  Philadelphia residents Elliot and Alma Moore (Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel) decide to evacuate before the outbreak travels further south, simultaneously piecing together what might have triggered the catastrophe.

The Happening earned $163 million at movie theaters, nearly triple its $60 million budget.
