    M. Night Shyamalan's 'Moby Dick'-Inspired Series 'Lost Horizon' Gets Pilot Order At NBC

    Just when you thought one revisionist take on the classic Herman Melville tale “Moby Dick” wasn’t enough, another project looking to retell the tale has emerged from the depth not unlike its titular character. While “We Need To Talk About Kevin” filmmaker Lynne Ramsay will be taking us to space for ...

    M. Night Shyamalan Has 'Proof' For Syfy; 'After Earth' Trailer May Arrive With 'The Hobbit'

    It may be hard to recall now, but there was once a time when director M. Night Shyamalan was coined by Time magazine as “The Next Spielberg,” and the fact that almost everything the helmer touched, starting with 1999’s “The Sixth Sense” seemed to turn to gold, he was certainly becoming the go-to pos...

    James Newton Howard Reteams With M. Night Shyamalan To Score 'After Earth'

    There’s an argument – and it’s an argument that this writer subscribes to – that ever since “The Sixth Sense” each of M. Night Shyamalan’s films has been worse than the one that preceded it. “The Sixth Sense” > “Unbreakable” > &...

    A Fan Of ‘Tree of Life’ & ‘Jurassic Park?’ Then You’ll Love ‘After Earth’ Says M. Night Shyamalan

    While Twitter remains a vital tool for filmmakers to reach out to audiences worldwide, there are some public figures for which the medium just seems ill-fitted. Directors like Kevin Smith and Edgar Wright have their sensibilities precisely tuned to the format, but on the other end of the spectrum, M...

    Concept Art From M. Night Shyamalan's ‘After Earth’ Features A Picture Of Wong Kar-Wai's 'In the Mood for Love'

    Well, say what you will about M. Night Shyamalan, but his films -- even at their worst -- have always looked pretty damn good (the exception being the abysmal "The Last Airbender"). Shyamalan has alwasy had a knank for picking great cinematographers to work with on his films including Tak ...

    Zoe Kravitz & Sophie Okonedo In Talks To Join Will & Jaden Smith In M. Night Shyamalan's '1000 A.E.'

    Looking back at the blockbusters of this year, it's pretty much whiter than a dinner party at Mel Gibson's house. Bar the occasional token supporting role, like Derek Luke's five lines in "Captain America: The First Avenger," Idris Elba stealing the show in "Thor" or ...

    'Traffic' Oscar-Winner Stephen Gaghan Polishes M. Night Shyamalan's Will Smith Vehicle 'One Thousand A.E.'

    Of the many, many problems of the recent output of M. Night Shyamalan, perhaps first among them is that he's simply not as good a writer as he is a director. He handles the early parts of "Signs" with a disciplined tautness worthy of Spielberg, but throws it away on a teeth-grittingly nonsensical 'G...
