Director M. Night Shyamalan has had some impressive movies, but he’s also disappointed at times.
M Night Shyamalan got fame from the movie the sixth Sense (1999) and he premiered a few more hits in the following years protégé (2000), symptoms (2002) Y Forest (2004). But after that, he showed that it was not easy to maintain such a high level and he also suffered a few setbacks. Luckily, he’s doing just fine with the most interesting movies.
In a recent interview with THR, M Night Shyamalan He has done a very interesting review of his biggest failures.
The one thing I let go of “Lady in the Water” was this: How are they going to sell the movie? Now I tell this story to all the filmmakers I have worked with. I also told about it to my daughter, who is about to make her first film. I’ll tell you: Marketers are the first people to tell their story. They start the story. It is part of the art form. So you have to start thinking about that while making the film. And in The Girl in the Water, I didn’t do that. I just did something that I liked. It was the least watched of all my films, but even today when people approach me about that film, they talk about it religiously.”
His biggest flops were Airbender: The Last Warrior (2010) and After Earth (2013).
the director M Night Shyamalan He admits that he was not right for those two films.
“We all go through moments in our lives where we want to be accepted. We get tired of fighting and defending what we are. And tacitly, or sometimes openly, they’ll say: You’re wrong to do it that way. You are arrogant. If you just do this, this and this, everything will work out for you. And I said, well, maybe you’re right. So I made a real effort to get into the system, but I learned that doing the specific things that made me happy was hard to do within that system. It was great to get that opportunity, but there are so many people who are so much better than me at telling that kind of story.”
