    Watch: First Trailer For M. Night Shyamalan-Produced Event Series ‘Wayward Pines’ Borders On 'Twin Peaks' Parody

    By ever-increasing necessity, director M. Night Shyamalan has decided to steer his cinematic career away from studio-backed opulence and towards a more grounded state of affairs. His next two projects, “Sundowning” and “A Labor of Love” are both independent efforts, taking their stars (Kathryn Hahn ...

    M. Night Shyamalan At Work On Low Budget Thriller 'Sundowning' Starring Kathryn Hahn

    Licking his wounds after the critical drubbing of "The Last Airbender," along with the equally reviled and commercial bomb "After Earth," M. Night Shyamalan is going indie, with production already underway on "Sundowning." The project has been shooting somewhat in secret for a while, but some new de...

    M. Night Shyamalan & Bruce Willis Reunite For A ‘Labor Of Love’

    While both of their trajectories have fallen into mediocrity, at one time M. Night Shyamalan and Bruce Willis were hard to beat. For a moment there in the late '90s and early '00s, the duo mesmerized audiences and critics with supernatural offerings "The Sixth Sense" and "Unbreakable," before they b...

    So M. Night Shyamalan Probably Didn't Ghostwrite ‘She’s All That’ After All?

    Remember recently when M. Night Shyamalan said that he ghostwrote the 1999 Freddie Prinze Jr./Rachael Leigh Cook rom-com “She’s All That”? Maybe not, but you should have at least read and/or heard that tidbit as a buzzworthy factoid by now. Over the past two weeks or so, the rumor has set the inte...

    Watch: Was ‘The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan’ The End Of This Fauxteur?

    For this writer, one of the most egregious statements a magazine ever made about a filmmaker was in 2002 when Newsweek called M. Night Shyamalan the “Next Spielberg.” The surprise twists of his films were gimmicks and never had much substantive weight emotionally or otherwise (other than similar nar...

    Box Office: Will Smith Tumbles With 'After Earth'; 'Fast & Furious 6' Holds On To #1

    Has there ever been any franchise quote like the "Fast And Furious" films? Since Justin Lin took over the series, the grosses have risen with each installment. His "The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift" collected $158 million globally seven years ago, and now, three movies later, "Fast And Furious ...

    M. Night Shyamalan Says 'Unbreakable' Sequel Is "Getting Closer"

    The latest from M. Night Shyamalan, the Smith & Son sci-fi spectacle "After Earth" hits theaters this Friday, and as you might expect it's another underwhelming effort from the filmmaker (our review is here). And while he's already gone on record saying that his next movie will be a "micro-budget" m...

    Review Roundup: M. Night Shyamalan Makes a "Non-Happening" with 'After Earth,' Starring a Sparkless Jaden and Will Smith

    Critics aren't impressed with either M. Night Shyamalan's directorial work or the Jaden and Will Smith pairing in new apocalyptic sci-fi entry "After Earth" (June 7). The venom towards Shyamalan is strong (Sony all but cut his name from the film's marketing), with Variety calling his film a "non-hap...

    M. Night Shyamalan Reveals He Ghost-Wrote 'She's All That' & Says His Next Film Will Be "Micro-Budget" Effort

    It's pretty fascinating to see the extent of M. Night Shyamalan's sidelining during the run-up to “After Earth,” as his mounting directorial follies have led to the promotional campaign saying barely a word about him. Instead, stars Will Smith and Jaden Smith are left to carry the sci-fi film to hop...
