Shockingly, people are still paying M. Night Shyamalan to produce work. But will any of it be good? Probably not if they follow the trend in this chart from Reddit user MrFrenchTrickler, who visualized the Sixth Sense director's downward spiral.
Using Rotten Tomatoes ratings, the chart shows Shyamalan's fall from The Sixth Sense's 85 percent fresh to The Last Airbender's dismal 6 percent. Critics averaged out by Rotten Tomatoes gave Signs a soft push up from Unbreakable, but from there, it was all downhill.
Shyamalan's movie After Earth, about a father-son duo landing on a post-apocalyptic Earth, is set to release next summer and stars Will and Jaden Smith. Proof, a pilot planned for the Syfy channel, has no premiere date and is supposed to be a modern day twist on The Twilight Zone. If the chart above predicts the future, then be very, very dubious of both.
