Remembering When M. Night Shyamalan Had a Career

Whatever happened to M. Night Shyamalan?

Oh, he’s been making movies at a more or less steady pace every few years, but where he was once a wunderkind he’s now a pariah. Instead of being anticipated, his new releases are met with derision.m Just look at the reception Will Smith‘s After Earth got. Or, rather, didn’t get. Not even a Will Smith summer action movie could get any traction with Shyamalan at the helm.

How the mighty have fallen. Once, he was the toast of the town thanks to The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. Now, his career seems irreparably damaged.
