The Early Word On King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword Is In

10 May 2017 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s a reason King Arthur: Legend of the Sword spent so long simmering in pre-production.

During the formative stages of development on Guy Ritchie’s bold, mystical reimagining of the classic fable, Warner Bros. brass cobbled together a blueprint for a shared medieval universe featuring some of the most iconic characters from the Middle Ages (see: Lancelot and Merlin), which inevitably placed the burden of expectation on Legend of the Sword‘s broad, burly shoulders. It may not contain the Easter eggs and cute references of, say, a Marvel tentpole, but King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is still considered to be the franchise-starter – the first domino – of Warner’s interconnected universe, but at least according to the early critical consensus, Guy Ritchie’s lavish tentpole is off to a rocky start.

Pegged for launch on May 12th, we’ve compiled a collection of samples from those reviews currently littering the interwebs, »

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword Review

9 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword brings cockney swagger to British folklore, but in a very “Guy Ritchie” way that doesn’t jive with medieval hooliganism. Despite how those Monty Python boys once jested, Camelot ’tis not a silly place – in fact, it’s dreadfully serious and tonally ajar. Ritchie desperately wants to make a knights-and-mages RocknRolla, but stays too stern despite video-gamer digitization. How can such overwhelming mysticism be so pedestrian and drab? Maybe it’s the two-hour-plus running time? Or maybe the lack of evolved gangster coloring? Either way, “Ritchieisms” feel restricted by tight period bindings. All that, and I don’t see Charlie Hunnam as a fitting muse for Ritchie’s more charismatic tastes. Excalibur and all.

Mr. Hunnam stars as a young Arthur, heir to the throne of Camelot but convinced he’s a whore’s bastard son. He experiences life on the »

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.

Celebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersCelebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersAdriana Floridia4/20/2017 9:40:00 Am

Today is National Look-Alike day, and so naturally we're here to take a look at some startlingly similar actors and actresses in film.

Have you ever watched a movie thinking it was one actor on screen, only to realize later that it was actually someone who just looked a lot like them? We've been there, and we'll admit that we've mixed up these actors before. Who hasn't thought that Frodo was Harry, and Harry was Frodo? We've also confused Gandalf and Dumbledore, but we're trying to put that one behind us. 

The following actors could quite possibly be related, if we looked at their ancestral charts. If that's not the case then we can't explain the phenomenon of their nearly identical likenesses. We wish we had a celebrity twin.

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. »

4 Great Films New to Movies On Demand in April 2017, Including ‘Toni Erdmann’ and ‘Split’ — IndieWire on Demand

31 March 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Movies on Demand. Catch up on the latest films On Demand here.]

Movies on Demand continues to add a wide variety of audience favorites, even as the 2016 awards season is firmly in the rear view. Check out four of our favorite films from the upcoming month below, as well as the full list of great movies available throughout April.

1) “Paterson” (Available April 4)

Making a film about a poet is difficult, but Jim Jarmusch’s modest portrait of a modest Jersey bus driver finds something profound in simplicity. The week-in-the-life approach that Jarmusch takes with his script gives Adam Driver a career-expanding performance filled with warmth and empathy. Toss in one of the most adorable dogs in all of cinema and you have a film from a director returning to form.

2) “Lion” (Available April 11)

Based on Saroo Brierley’s real-life, Google-Earth-aided quest to find his birth family, Garth Davis’ film spans countries with a grace and respect that similar adoption stories rarely have. »

M. Night Shyamalan Provides Brief Update On Unbreakable 2 Script

13 March 2017 6:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ll be the first to admit that we were among the many people who wrote off M. Night Shyamalan a long time ago, back when he was putting out duds like Lady in the Water and The Happening. What started off as a tremendously promising career took a sharp nosedive rather quickly and never fully recovered – until now. Starting in 2015 with The Visit, the director slowly but surely began to get back on a more positive track, one which eventually led to this year’s Split.

Starring James McAvoy, it was a huge hit for Shyamalan and has now put him back in the good graces of both critics and audiences alike. Not only that, but it’s paved the way for the long awaited Unbreakable 2, given that it featured a cameo from Bruce WillisDavid Dunn at the end, revealing that both films were set in the same universe. »

Trevor Habberstad, X-Men and Doctor Strange Stuntman, Passes Away at 27

22 February 2017 5:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Hollywood community is in mourning once again, only this time, for a young man who passed far before his prime. Trevor Habberstad, a stuntman and stunt coordinator who most recently worked on X-Men: Apocalypse, Doctor Strange and Passengers, passed away on Sunday at the age of 27. The stuntman succumbed to a rare form of cancer. Trevor Habberstad was on a family vacation in Hawaii last year when he began to feel stomach pain that doctors initially thought was appendicitis, but after another evaluation, it was revealed that he actually had gastric cancer.

Jeff Habberstad, Trevor's father and a stuntman/stunt coordinator as well, told Khts News in their hometown of Santa Clarita, California that they just found out about a week and a half ago that the cancer had spread into the late stuntman's brain. Jeff Habberstad served as a stunt coordinator for director Bryan Singer on 2014's »

Box Office: 'Split' Tops ‘Dog’s Purpose’ With $26 Million

29 January 2017 7:56 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite the TMZ videos and boycott threats, “A Dog’s Purpose” still managed to pull in family audiences, who apparently shook off or were unmoved by footage of a cowering German Shepherd being forced into rushing water.

The story of a dog who gets reincarnated, living through and playing “man’s best friend” to multiple masters, brought in $18.4 million in its opening weekend. That’s in line with other films for animal-lovers, such as “Eight Below” ($20.1 million) and “Dolphin Tale” ($19.1 million), neither one of which raised the ire of PETA. Universal and Amblin partnered on “A Dog’s Purpose.” It has a $22 million production budget.

It’s a solid opening, one that suggests that the companies were successful in containing the wave of bad publicity that threatened the film’s release. After TMZ released the video, director Lasse Hallstrom, producer Gavin Polone, and various cast members expressed their outrage and »

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, »

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 »

With ‘Split,’ Horror and M. Night Shyamalan Remain Box Office Draws

22 January 2017 1:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The North American box office received a major boost this weekend from a pair of reliable sources: the horror genre and M. Night Shyamalan with “Split,” his 12th film.

Overall moviegoing jumped 29 percent to $148 million this weekend, led by a surprisingly strong $40.2 million debut for “Split.” Universal’s forecasts before the weekend had been in the $20 million range for “Split.”

Year-to-date business, which had been lagging by 8.8 percent before the weekend, has reached $748 million and is now only 4 percent behind the same point last year when “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was driving business.

“This really kicks off 2017 in earnest, which I didn’t think would happen until ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ on Feb. 10,” noted Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with comScore. “There were a lot of distractions such as Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday and the women’s marches on Saturday, so the number for ‘Split’ is very impressive. »

M. Night Shyamalan’s Split Number One Film In North America With $46 Million

22 January 2017 1:30 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

M. Night Shyamalan’s suspense thriller Split was the number one movie in North America, scaring up an impressive $46 million in its debut for the 3rd weekend in January.

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 2015’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, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being.

Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. »

Excellent ‘Split’ Twist Gives Off Vibe of Early Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies (Commentary)

19 January 2017 10:03 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(It probably should be expected that there will be major spoiler for “Split” and other M. Night Shyamalan movies below. So here’s your spoiler alert.) M. Night Shyamalan movies have it tough. Almost all of them feature an attempt at a hard-hitting twist, and with the massive success of “The Sixth Sense” right out of the gate, the bar for those twists has been set pretty high. When a movie’s twist fails to clear that bar, viewers and critics aren’t too kind about it. Several Shyamalan movies, such as “The Village” or “Lady in the Water,” are met with disdain for their. »

A Definitive Ranking of All of M. Night Shyamalan's Biggest Twists, From 'The Sixth Sense' to 'Split'

18 January 2017 3:28 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There's a twisted little reveal at the end of M. Night Shyamalan's multiple personalities horror flick, Split -- though, that shouldn't come as a surprise to fans of the director, as an Omg!-worthy twist in the final act of the film has become his calling card in Hollywood. (Which wasn't always the case, as -- twist! -- he also wrote the script for Stuart Little.) As for how it stacks up against the twists of Shyamalan films past, we won't divulge the ending of Split here, but...

Massive spoilers for all other M. Night Shyamalan films ahead.

For Shyamalan's part, his favorite of his twists is in Signs. "I don’t know why, I find it so spiritual," he told Et. "The guy who lost faith and then remembers what his wife said. Then, he looks around the room and sees that his wife was talking about this moment. It always »

'Split' Review: This Multiple-Personality Thriller May Scare You to Death

18 January 2017 6:33 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

James McAvoy acts the hell out of 23 roles in Split, the story of Kevin, a psychiatric patient afflicted with dissociative identity disorder (Did). Actually, the actor introduces us to only a handful of these personalities. Too many "alters," as they're called, might spoil the brew cooked up by writer-director M. Night Shyamalan in one of his best psychological thrillers. In trying to repeat the success of his landmark 1999 scarefest The Sixth Sense, the director has backed himself into a lot of corners involving the mystical beings and surprise endings. Critical reaction has been cruel, »

Exclusive: The Honor and Pressure of Being M. Night Shyamalan

18 January 2017 6:15 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“I see dead people.”

It was the plot twist heard around the world when writer-director-producer M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense hit theaters in 1999 and surprised everyone with one of the most shocking reveals in cinematic history. The film, starring Bruce Willis and newcomer Haley Joel Osment, earned six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Shyamalan. It was also a monster success at the box office, grossing over $672 million worldwide on a $40 million budget, and turned Shyamalan into a household name.

Born in India, raised in Pennsylvania and a graduate of New York University’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts, Shyamalan followed the success of The Sixth Sense with even more twists and turns over the next two decades. 2000’s Unbreakable -- also starring Willis -- 2002’s Signs with Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix and 2004’s The Village -- also with Phoenix -- saw the director reach new heights »

Review: In Split, M. Night Channels His Best Uncanny Work Through James McAvoy

17 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Split has it both ways; it is a film that creatively capitalizes on the thriller genre, and an excellent example of the quality and innovation the much-maligned director was initially lauded for. Through directing epic-scale flops (The Last Airbender), smaller passion project horrors (The Visit), and whatever the hell Lady in the Water was, M. Night Shyamalan has definitely sharpened up for its latest effort. Much criticism and analysis has been put forward regarding Shyamalan's declining trajectory of directorial features. He arguably peaked after alien thriller Signs (2002), and despite his involvement in the excellent recent first season of Wayward Pines, his other films have been intensely ridiculed. Although Split can easily be picked apart, it is one of his best films. The director even...
