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.

Win a Copy of ‘Split’ on Blu-Ray

17 April 2017 6:56 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

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. Night Shyamalan returns to the captivating grip of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs with Split, an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. Following last year’s breakout hit The Visit, Shyamalan reunites with producer Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series, The Gift) for the film.

While the mental divisions of those with Dissociative Identity Disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, »

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 »

Are we still interested in Unbreakable 2?

27 January 2017 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on whether there’s still interest in an Unbreakable sequel…

In the year 2000 there might not have been a bigger M. Night Shyamalan fan than yours truly. The Sixth Sense was a sucker punch of a movie; I didn’t see the quality or the cultural zeitgeist coming. I remember buying a ticket with zero expectations having heard none of the hype. I can remember a 30 second spot with Haley Joel Osment saying “I see dead people” and a shot of Bruce Willis yelling at a car that drives by; the product of a marketing department trying to sell a deliberately slow drama as having moments of thriller like tension.

Like so many others, The Sixth Sense was an amazing experience. A wonderful film with great performances and an amazing ending for those of us who didn’t see it coming. Unbreakable was a movie that seemed less transformative to mainstream ticket buyers, »

It's Time to Settle This: Which M. Night Shyamalan Movie Has the Best Twist?

25 January 2017 3:15 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When you sit down to watch an M. Night Shyamalan movie, you know you're going to get at least one of a few things: shivers running up and down your spine at Usain Bolt-like speeds, a nightmare or two, a shot of the Philadelphia skyline, and, of course, a twist of epic proportions. Of all the horror and sci-fi directors who drop shocking endings on us, few are as well-known for them as Shyamalan. Unexpected endings have become somewhat of the writer-director's calling card ever since he skyrocketed to fame for his brilliant, final surprise in 1999's The Sixth Sense, which he's since attempted to re-create in successive films like Signs and The Village. Given the recent release of his latest horror flick Split, we've decided to settle this once and for all: which one of his films has the best twist? Join us as we narrow down his movies (only horror/thrillers, »

M. Night Shyamalan On Lady In The Water And The Village’s Relevance Today

25 January 2017 2:50 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s actually quite nice to see M. Night Shyamalan making something of a comeback. All too often, we see filmmakers lose their touch and sort of fade into obscurity, but with these last two movies, Shyamalan is proving once again why fans used to consider him one of the up-and-coming masters of suspense.

After movies like The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs hit theaters, it seemed like he was an unstoppable force, but with the release of The Village — a film that was largely divisive, even among his fans - it seemed to reveal a chink in his armor. His next movie, Lady in the Water was the biggest flop of his career, and from there, it seemed as though the filmmaker had fallen into a pit of quicksand. 

It’s been north of ten years since those movies hit, and in the time since, one has to wonder »

Newswire: Weekend Box Office: M. Night Shyamalan twists again

23 January 2017 11:13 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Turns out America still likes M. Night Shyamalan. The reputation of the former next great hope of Hollywood fizzled out after a string of poorly received films and ill-conceived forays into effect-driven blockbuster fantasy, but now the low-budget thriller Split has proven to be his critical and commercial comeback. The film earned Shyamalan his best reviews in 15 years (since Signs, in other words), as well as one of the largest January opening weekends on record. Exceeding predictions, the movie opened at No. 1 with a $40.2 million box office debut. Given that the movie cost less to make than Shyamalan’s little-seen pre-Sixth Sense feature Wide Awake—the one where Rosie O’Donnell plays a nun—that means it’s already wildly profitable. It helps the thing is damn entertaining.

In bizarre callback to Shyamalan’s early 2000s heyday, the No. 2 slot went to xXx: The ...
