The era of Universal under director M. Night Shyamalan seems to be coming to a somewhat depressing close. As it nears the end of its theatrical run, his most recent movie, the post-apocalyptic thriller Knock at the Cabin, added $2.5 million globally this weekend (the film is already available on PVOD). This is much lower than every movie he’s made since his career revival almost ten years ago.

Knock at the Cabin has generated approximately $34 million in domestic sales and $18.1 million in foreign markets. A $20 million reported production budget should allow the movie to break even. According to Universal, Knock at the Cabin is currently performing somewhat worse than two other Shyamalan thrillers, The Visit and Old. Both of those films failed to gross more than $100 million worldwide. Nonetheless, Knock at the Cabin has surpassed The Visit in the United Kingdom, where its current running revenue is $3.6 million. The movie, which received a global release earlier this month, has grossed $1.7 million in France, $1.4 million in Spain, and $1 million in Germany.

The lesbian couple and their daughter are held captive in the film Knock at the Cabin, which is based on the Paul G. Tremblay novel of the same name. The pair must make the unthinkable decision to kill one of the four strangers if they want to preserve humanity from the end of the planet, according to the four strangers. In the movie, Shyamalan combines his favorite subject—faith—with elements from home invasion thrillers.

Shyamalan, who was once hailed as Hollywood’s up-and-coming star, has found it difficult to duplicate the popularity of his box office smash The Sixth Sense ($672 million worldwide). Despite the worldwide film office successes of Unbreakable ($248 million), Signs ($408 million), and The Village ($256 million), there was a clear case of diminishing returns with Shyamalan’s production, particularly critically.

With consecutive box office and critical flops like Lady in the Water ($72 million globally), The Happening ($163 million globally), The Last Airbender ($319 million globally), and After Earth ($243 million globally), his career reached new lows. However, Shyamalan rediscovered his form in 2015 with a string of independently produced, lower-budget films, including The Visit ($98 million), Split ($278 million), Glass ($247 million), and Old ($90 million). He also successfully ran Apple’s Servant for four seasons, receiving consistent praise from critics.

Recently, Shyamalan confirmed a first-look agreement with Warner Bros; the company will release his upcoming movie, Trap, which is scheduled for release in August 2024. Ishana Night Shyamalan, the director’s daughter, will make her feature film directing debut with The Watchers, which will also be released by W.B.
