‘Gotham’ Recap: “The Fear Reaper” – The Dork Knight Rises

28 September 2017 6:01 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At this point, I think it’s safe to say someone very important in Gotham’s creative team views the 2002 M. Night Shyamalan movie Signs as the height of creative storytelling. Remember Signs? In which a race of aliens deathly allergic to water invade a planet made of 70-percent water, therefore allowing the human race to defeat them via garden hose and/or Super Soaker? Someone on Team Gotham took a very specific lesson from that film, because “The Fear Reaper” marks the third–the third–as in one, two, three times this show has ramped up the … »

‘It’ is a Box Office Sensation — But ‘It’ is Not the Record Breaker Everyone Thinks

26 September 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Full credit where “It” is due: Currently standing at $266 million through its third weekend, “It” is a stunning success and boosted a domestic box office in serious crisis. A reasonable estimate, if somewhat conservative, is a domestic gross around $325 million.

All this, from a September horror film made for $35 million? That’s a stunning performance. And it’s by far the best-performing Stephen King adaptation. But it’s far from the top horror movie in history.

At $325 million, here’s where “It” will stand in adjusted totals:

Horror films The Exorcist (1973) – $983 million The Sixth Sense (1999) – $512 million House of Wax (1953) – $449 million Psycho (1960) – $379 million Signs (2002) – $345 million It (2017) – $325 million (projected)

House of Wax” was by far the biggest 3D hit in that technique’s first wave. “The Exorcist” is the ninth biggest-grossing of the post-silent era and a social phenomenon in its time. M. Night Shyamalan’s films both had high-end casts and »

The Gracefield Incident – Review

30 July 2017 7:56 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Filmmaking is about manipulating the audience’s view on a story through pictures, and that’s why found footage has always been kind of weird. Found footage forces the perspective of the audience to lie in the Pov of the main character, which means that they sometimes lack the ability to seem as intricately crafted as other films. They sometimes are lacking some of the manipulative ability. This gets especially compounded whenever the found footage gimmick does nothing to make the film genuinely scary, with the film both lacking the manipulative power to be scary but also the actively working against the more traditional filmmaking that would make the film scarier. The Gracefield Incident, unfortunately, seems to contrive its reason for being found footage but also tends to hide the horror that would make it genuinely scary.

Before They Were Blockbuster Directors: 8 TV Episodes by the People Behind 2017’s Biggest Films

16 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Even though the worlds of film and TV are converging more than ever before, it’s interesting to note just how many of the people behind the biggest films of the year have tried their hand at TV work in the past.

Get Out” director Jordan Peele never officially directed an episode of his long-running Comedy Central sketch show “Key & Peele,” but his debut film currently sits at No. 7 on the year’s domestic box office list. Go up and down the rest of that chart and you’ll find movies from directors who’ve made valuable contributions to TV comedies and dramas alike.

Most of these episodes were pilots or season premieres, ways for directors to help establish a template or shorthand for what governs life in front of and behind the camera for the duration of these series. While some of these filmmakers took multiple opportunities in the TV director’s seat, »

‘Scream Queens’ Officially Canceled at Fox After Two Seasons

15 May 2017 6:13 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scream Queens” has officially been cancelled by Fox.

The cancellation was expected for the Ryan Murphy horror comedy anthology series, which struggled to find an audience over its first two seasons, though it did perform well in delayed viewing and was extremely buzzy on social media. Fox also liked that the show brought in a younger demo.

Fox chairs Dana Walden and Gary Newman confirmed that the Ryan Murphy anthological series had reached the end of its run during a conference call with reporters Monday morning, ahead of the network’s upfront presentation.

“It feels as if it was a complete series,” said Newman. “We have no plans to go back and tell more stories there. We won’t be seeing Scream Queens this season.”

Earlier this year, Fox executives told reporters that the future of “Scream Queens” was still up in the air, saying, “It’s very much still in consideration for a renewal,” in »

How M. Night Shyamalan Got Out of His Career Slump

2 May 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Once, M. Night Shyamalan‘s name was synonymous with box office disappointment. The horror director exploded on the scene with The Sixth Sense in 1999, and became known for his mind-blowing twist endings. He was on a roll for a while with Unbreakable and Signs, but then something happened. His movies began to get critically panned, and […]

M. Night Shyamalan Officially Announces His ‘Unbreakable’/‘Split’ Crossover Sequel ‘Glass’

26 April 2017 9:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

 

Boy, the career of M. Night Shyamalan has had more twists and turns than an M. Night Shyamalan movie. He went from director of a virtually unseen indie debut, to an Oscar-nominated overnight success with “The Sixth Sense,” to a golden boy unable to do wrong with “Unbreakable” and “Signs,” to a critical pinata with “Lady In The Water” and “The Happening,” to blockbuster flop helmer (and also still a critical pinata) with “After Earth” and “The Last Airbender,” to the director of well-executed, low-budget, career-reviving horror movies.

Fiends, we got a great title to give away on Blu-Ray. We have M. Night Shyamalan’s Split to give to some of our readers. Split is now available to own on Digital HD and will be out on Blu-Ray & DVD tomorrow but you can score a copy of it by entering into our contest below. Read on, creep. Read on.

Writer/director/producer M.

Following last year’s breakout hit The Visit, Shyamalan reunites with producer Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series, The Gift) for the film.

Split 2: M. Night Shyamalan Writing The Climax Of The Upcoming Sequel!

17 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We may very well be in the middle of one of the greatest career renaissances in recent memory. M. Night Shyamalan is a filmmaker who started off his career with a bang. The Sixth Sense is still a flick that is highly relevant in the pop culture zeitgeist, and Shyamalan went to follow up that strong film with Unbreakable and Signs, proving that he was no one-hit wonder.

Of course, you can’t bring up Shyamalan without also bringing up the slump he fell into. There may be some debate as to when it started. Some say it started with Signs, some say The Village, but most can agree that his work started to get universally panned around the time of Lady in the Water. From The Happening through After Earth, it wasn’t clear if he would ever come back as the same creative force as he once was. »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer

15 April 2017 1:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team share their thoughts on the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Yesterday at Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm unveiled the very first trailer for December’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and much like the rest of the internet, the team here at Flickering Myth was giddy with excitement! Check out our thoughts here…

Ben Robins: Absolutely Adore the more sinister tone to the score and the titles/poster, and how little they’re giving away. This was already my most anticipated movie of the year, hands down, but somehow I’m even more hyped now. Shaking in my seat. Physically shaking.

Villordsutch: An extremely well crafted, good looking trailer as The Force Awakens was. For those who follow the lore of Star Wars we know where this is going. It’s going to be interesting to see what other trailers are delivered »

‘Signs’ and ‘Arrival’: A Philosophical Comparison

4 April 2017 2:36 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What the two alien invasion films tell us about existential questions.

Ever since H.G. Wells released “The War of the Worlds” in 1898, the alien invasion genre has become a vehicle for humanity’s fears, questions, and aspirations. Although at the time that novel was thought to be a metaphor for the superstitions of the Victorian age, the story proved universal enough to apply to any era; from anxieties about Nazism when Orson Welles read it as a radio play in 1938, to Cold War nightmares when Byron Haskin adapted it into a film 1953, to worries about the War on Terror when Steven Spielberg did the same in 2005. But beyond merely reflecting the terrestrial fears of any particular time, the genre also addresses more universal questions — about life, death, and humanity’s place in the cosmos. Two of this century’s best alien invasion films — M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs and Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival — take precisely this existential »

Split 2: M. Night Shyamalan Gives Update On The Script’s Progress

2 March 2017 10:40 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Last year was a great year for horror fans. Between such films as Lights Out, Don’t Breathe, and Split, movie fans were reminded of the amazing impact a well told low-key horror flick can have. Additionally, it’s been a great couple years for M. Night Shyamalan, and the chops he brings to that genre. He first made his mark with one of his early films, The Sixth Sense, and before long, critics began to refer to him as the next Spielberg. We all know what happened next. He suffered a fall from grace that lasted over the course of several films — some so bad, that some wondered where all the promise went.

In 2015, he brought audiences The Visit, a solid found footage-type film that many saw as a trend in the right direction for him. Last year, Split came alone and blew audiences away. Not only was it a great concept, »

Mel Gibson Eyed For 'Daddy's Home 2'

30 January 2017 4:12 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Mel Gibson’s Hollywood comeback is now complete.

Paramount has made an official offer to Gibson to star with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in Daddy’s Home 2. John Lithgow also has an offer to join the cast.

The popular actor and filmmaker, whose image took a hit in the late aughts, hasn’t done a pure studio movie since Disney’s M. Night Shyamalan thriller Signs, in 2002. Most of his other movies were made outside the studio system as execs and agents tried to steer clear of the actor-filmmaker. Even Edge of Darkness was made and financed independently, although Warner Bros distributed »
