M. Night Shyamalan was born in Mah, Pondicherry, India on the 6th day of August in 1970. He was later raised in the Penn Valley area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Coming from a long line of doctors, Night wondered off the family path and into film-making. At the age of 29, exactly 7 years ago, his first wide-release film, The Sixth Sense, opened to great reviews and stupendous word of mouth. The film went on to gross $293 million dollars in the U.S. and almost $675 million world-wide. Landing at the second highest gross of the year, and as one of the highest grosses of all-time, the success of The Sixth Sense catapulted M. Night Shyamalan to the top of Hollywood. 7 years later he still remains at the top of the list, and has become a household name. With his future as a film-maker still shining bright, Night just released his 5th major film, and has already stated he has ideas for numbers 6 & 7!
