The poor reviews for Glass made M. Night Shyamalan cry

M. Night Shyamalan, the director of 2019’s Glass, has revealed that the film’s poor reviews evoked a strong emotional response in him.

When news broke that iconic director M. Night Shyamalan would be making a sequel to Unbreakable and Split, a lot of fans were very excited. Unfortunately, the reviews for the film upon release were less than stellar.

This is something that Shyamalan found particularly tough, as he explains during a lecture at NYU’s Stern School of Business (via Indiewire):

“I was in London when I heard the U.S. reviews for Glass were poor. I was in a makeup chair for a TV show, and I cried. We’d just come back from the London screenings, which were through the roof. We had only great screenings of the movie around the world. So essentially I wasn’t prepared. I had this false sense of being

Glass’ Negative Reviews Made M. Night Shyamalan Cry

Poor M. Night Shyamalan can’t catch a break, can he? To say that the director of Glass has had a tumultuous, up-and-down career within the Hollywood machine would be quite an understatement. Unfortunately, things seem to be on a bit of a downturn for the hit-or-miss director once again after the poor critical reception of his most recent blockbuster, and he took it harder than normal.

During a lecture at the Stern School of business at NYU this week, Shyamalan said that he was in London, in a make-up chair, when he heard the bad news about Glass. “I cried,” he said. “We had great screenings of the movie around the world, so essentially, I wasn’t prepared,” the director continues. He would go on to say how “distraught” he was that day. “Honestly, I was feeling like, ‘Will they ever let me be different without throwing me on the garbage pile?

Glass Bashing Reviews Brought M. Night Shyamalan to Tears

Glass Bashing Reviews Brought M. Night Shyamalan to Tears
M. Night Shyamalan admits the negative reviews for Glass made him cry. Shyamalan quickly rose to prominence with 1999's The Sixth Sense and was hailed as the next Steven Spielberg. However, things changed just as quickly with 2006's Lady in the Water, which was a disaster. Things started to pick up again for the director with the release of 2016's Split, which saw Shyamalan getting the best reviews since The Sixth Sense. Pressure was mounting for Glass and the director was sure he was continuing his good luck streak after a string of positive and enthusiastic screenings.

Glass was released earlier this year and instantly torn to shreds by critics. M. Night Shyamalan appeared at NYU's Stern School of Business at a Scholar-in-Residence lecture earlier this week and told the story of finding out his latest movie was getting torched. The movie was a box office success, but it was

M. Night Shyamalan Says Bad Reviews of ‘Glass’ Made Him Cry

M. Night Shyamalan Says Bad Reviews of ‘Glass’ Made Him Cry
With the release of “Split,” M. Night Shyamalan saw his best reviews since the 1999 breakout “The Sixth Sense.” As the surprise sequel to 2000’s “Unbreakable,” the 2016 “Split” won over many critics who had become skeptical of his bumpy filmography. But when he completed his trilogy with the January 2109 release of “Glass,” Shyamalan found himself in a familiar place.

“I was in London when I heard the U.S. reviews for ‘Glass’ were poor,” Shyamalan told the NYU’s Stern School of Business, where he delivered the 2019 Ashok C. Sani Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence lecture April 16. “I was in a makeup chair for a TV show, and I cried.”

While “Glass” made nearly $250 million worldwide, it landed the director some of his worst reviews (Rotten Tomatoes: 37%). The filmmaker has always been sensitive to criticism, but he also shared his ability to contend with the backlash, and offered advice for uncertain film students in the room.

Netflix Adds 9.6M New Subscribers In Q1; Recording Highest Paid Net Adds To Date But Stock Down

  • Deadline
Netflix revealed today in its first quarter earnings report that it has recorded its highest quarterly paid net adds in its history with 9.6 million new subscribers.

Despite the healthy Q1 results, the stock down over 4% in after hours trading on a historic trading day. A lot of that comes from the billions in debt Netflix is carrying and the lower than estimated guidance for Q2 and going forward.

Coming after a recent price hike and with looming competition, the Q1 results were well above the 8.9 million net additional paid subscribers that the Svod service had projected itself earlier. All of which means that Netflix has 148.9 million subscribers overall. The growth breaks down as 1.74 million new subs in the Us and 7.86 million internationally.

That exceeds the 8.9 million net additional paid subscribers around the world, reaching 148.2 million overall, that Netflix itself had projected. That would be an 8% gain over the same quarter

Julianne Moore–Led Stephen King Adaptation ‘Lisey’s Story’ Is Latest Apple Series

Julianne Moore–Led Stephen King Adaptation ‘Lisey’s Story’ Is Latest Apple Series
As long as there are Stephen King novels left to adapt, there will be streaming services and Oscar winners ready to answer the call. The latest such development is a new Apple series based on “Lisey’s Story,” the super-prolific author’s 2006 book. Julianne Moore is set to star in the series, which Variety reports is currently slated to be eight episodes long.

Moore will play the title character, a woman dealing with the loss of her husband. After years of grief, she begins to see his life and death in a completely new way after unexpected events. No additional casting news has been revealed as of yet.

After sparse previous appearances on TV — including a memorable handful of “30 Rock” episodes — this will be Moore’s first leading role on a series. She’s set to next appear on the big screen in Joe Wright’s upcoming film “The Woman in the Window

Shazam! and Pet Sematary Offer Box Office Thrills

David Crow Apr 8, 2019

Shazam! and Pet Sematary opened strong this weekend, proving smaller budgeted genre fare can still do big business.

The previous weekend proved to be another healthy, and therefore happy, three-day frame for genre fare. With each new year raising the specter of dread about theatergoing’s future, it’s always welcome news when studio wide releases perform at least as well as expected, and perhaps even more so when they don’t have to be quite so reliant on overextended budgets. Such was the case for Warner Brothers’ Shazam! and Paramount Pictures’ Pet Sematary remake, a respective superhero movie and Stephen King adaptation/remake that proved to be boffo goodness all-around.

Serendipitously timed to tail-end the week of CinemaCon, an event where studios, theater exhibitors, and the press look ahead to the future of the cinema experience, Shazam! offered a positive superhero opening weekend that didn’t need to be nine figures.

Avatar: 20 Unresolved Mysteries And Plot Holes The Last Airbender Left Hanging

It's hard to believe that Avatar: The Last Airbender wrapped up over a decade ago. The Nickelodeon animated series grew a huge baseman of both young and older viewers during its three-year run and this popularity hasn't waned one bit since it went off the air. In fact, as more time goes by, the more highly-regarded its legacy becomes, propelling it to the hallowed "modern classic" status few cartoons of its era have been able to achieve. Of course, we haven't exactly been starved for new Avatar content since The Last Airbender saga concluded. Aang, Zuko, Katara, Sokka, and Toph's adventures have continued in comic book form, as well as — with the exception of Sokka — their older, future selves in the sequel series that followed Aang's Avatar successor: The Legend of Korra.

And, of course, M. Night Shyamalan tried his hand at an almost unwatchable live-action movie adaptation. The enduring
