Knock, Knock! Shyamalan’s Next Twist Gets Release Date

M. Night Shyamalan is at the door and let’s just say, he’s still a little twisted. Shyamalan and Universal Pictures just dropped the name and release date for the supernatural filmmaker’s latest feature. Knock at the Cabin will be premiering on February 3, 2023. This would be a two-week bump from the previous announcement, according to Deadline. Shyamalan has been posting hints leading up to the announcement, teasing fans as he goes through the pre-production process of his film. Shyamalan’s most recent film, Old, garnered mixed reviews from critics but created plenty of memes online, with even Shyamalan participating in the fun. If fans are really itching to see the next Shyamalan flick, they should take a quick trip to the beach to pass the time.

Director Shyamalan unable let his latest venture ‘Old’ age very gracefully

A family of four arrives at a tropical resort and is sent, with other vacationers, to a beautiful secret beach enclosed by cliffs. Weird stuff starts happening almost at once, and before long, the crux of the weirdness becomes clear: The guests are aging, at a rate of about two years per hour. The little kids start sprouting into hormonal adolescents and the grownups start to get wrinkles. Worse yet, every effort to leave the beach is repelled by mysterious forces.

'Fortnite' Adds Map Inspired by Shyamalan's 'Old,' But Playing It Doesn't Age You, Probably

Fortnite released a new Escape Map inspired by M. Night Shyamalan’s Old, a movie about a group of people trapped on an island where time moves a lot faster than usual. In the new Escape Map, groups of six players will need to run against the clock in order to survive the island, crafting tools and finding resources that can keep them alive. As with other Escape Maps on Fortinite, the Old-inspired level has a focus on survival elements, instead of offering a competitive shooter experience.

Lots of hits and misses in Shyamalan's horror flick "Old"

In a twist worthy of director M. Night Shyamalan, his latest movie “Old” pulled an upset at the weekend box office, beating out “Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins” for the #1 spot. I’m glad this happened, as “Snake Eyes” was unoriginal franchise garbage that may prove detrimental to the career of likeable star Henry Golding (Grade: D). Many are saying that “Old” is also garbage, but I say at least it’s unique.

G.I. Joe film, Shyamalan's 'Old' struggle to attract fans

North American theaters are headed for their second straight weekend of falling ticket sales, with only a modest turnout for a new installment of the G.I.

REEL TALK: Shyamalan's 'Old' is a psychological roller coaster

I was 5 years old, looking out the window on a winter’s day when I wished aloud to my mother, “I wish I was older!” She admonished me, warning me as I got older, the days went by faster. Nothing could be more accurate in describing M. Night Shyamalan’s thrilling...

Old: Engaging but frustrating Shyamalan fairy tale

Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan follows a familiar playbook in crafting “Old,” a latest dark, gruesome thriller. Since the massive success of 1999’s “The Sixth Sense,” audiences have grown accustomed to the Shyamalan formula. After all, it was that film’s stunning “aha” moment that helped give him two Oscar nominations. Rarely has the filmmaker strayed from the winning recipe that brought him early success. And consistent with his track record, “Old” is a story that concludes its narrative with a big, shocking reveal.

‘Old’ Early Buzz: The Next ‘Happening’ or Shyamalan’s Best Since ‘Unbreakable,’ Depending on Who You Ask

Love ’em or hate ’em, people keep showing up for M. Night Shyamalan movies without ever quite knowing which side of the fence they’ll land on. There’s something refreshing and undeniably exciting about a major Indian-born filmmaker — one who also happens to be a brand name and a consistent draw among general audiences — continuing to produce original and high concept films, especially in a marketplace that’s increasingly hostile to such projects.

Big Game Spot: Shyamalan’s “Old”

Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan leaves Philadelphia behind for somewhere more tropical with the first trailer for new horror-thriller “Old”. The story follows a group of vacationing people who find a dead body on a secluded beach and gradually come to realize something unnatural is happening both with time and their own aging process.
