Unbreakable: M. Night Shyamalan celebrates 20 years with a souvenir photo

Unbreakable: M. Night Shyamalan celebrates 20 years with a souvenir photo
Twenty years ago, exactly on November 22, 2000, Unbreakable was released in cinemas in the United States, written, produced and directed by director M. Night Shyamalan and distributed by Buena Vista. The film, released just over a year after Il Sesto Senso, was one of the first projects to tackle the superhero theme with a different perspective and a thriller style. Unbreakable was generally received in a positive way, while not particularly elevating in critical praise, and has grossed over $ 248 million worldwide.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of his work, Shyamalan has recently shared on Twitter a commemorative photo of him on set. However, this is not the classic group photo with the cast of the film and surrounded by the other actors of the crew, but a more personal photo flanked by his two daughters, at the time just children, who had joined him on the set.

This is a picture of me on the set directing the scene where Elijah falls down the subway stairs in #Unbreakable 20 years ago. The older daughter is now a professional musician & the one in diapers just directed two episodes of @Servant Happy 20th anniversary to crew & cast. pic.twitter.com/cS9LwHgqjw

Today M. Night Shyamalan also has a third daughter, while the second nominated is Ishana Night Shyamalan, who followed in her father's footsteps as a young director; prior to his work for Servant, a TV series on Apple TV +, he directed the music video of the song "Clarity" by his older sister Saleka.

For the uninitiated, Unbreakable has long been an opera stand -alone, only to be revealed after more than 15 years as the first of a larger series with the addition of Split in 2016. The worlds and protagonists of the two films finally came together in Glass of 2019, completing the so-called Eastrail 177 Trilogy.

M. Night Shyamalan's trilogy is definitely a series of films to recover and keep in your collection . You can easily do it on Amazon at the following links: Unbreakable, Split, Glass.
