M. Night Shyamalan's Chart of Descent

Movie posters of The Last Airbender (that other Avatar movie) have been released and they look nifty. The film, based on a popular children's animated television show, follows a young boy named Aang that discovers he has the power to control the four main elements of earth, air, fire and water. He is pursued by the evil "Fire Lord" and "Fire Clan" who wishes to destroy the last "Avatar".

But, we asked ourselves, what are the chances that M. Night Shyamalan will make a good film?

So, we set out to scientifically chart his career in hopes of prognosticating how his next film would do. We now present "M. Night Shamalyan's Film Career" chart:

Final Conclusion: This is the most expensive film M. Night has ever made and, based on the data, The Last Airbender may make money, but will be nominated for at least one "Golden Raspberry" award.

What do you think of the odds The Last Airbender will be good? Let us know in the comments!


  1. Nice one. So ultimately, we see that the budget has no connection to the popularity of what's on the screen.

    It's kind of sad to see a promising filmmaker go down in flames.

  2. I’d love to see the Rotten Tomatoes scores added to this chart. Night’s movies have gone in a straight decline in quality after his one-hit wonder. Never woulda guessed his sophomore slump “Unbreakable” woulda been his last tolerable film. It’s as if he was pissed people didn’t embrace that as much as “Sense” and is spending the rest of his career proving “Unbreakable” could have been much worse.

  3. I’m not 100% sure if it automatically tells you this, but I reblogged this with my comments. Interesting information.
