M. Night Shyamalan
M. Night Shyamalan

Indian-American filmmaker and actor M. Night Shyamalan has directed fourteen feature-length narrative films to date. He rose to prominence after writing and directing The Sixth Sense in 1999, a film that earned him Academy Award nominations for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. The filmmaker would later go on to write and direct Unbreakable (2000) in his second collaboration with actor Bruce Willis, which spawned two sequels, known as the Eastrail 177 Trilogy. In 2002 and 2004, respectively, Shyamalan created Signs and The Village, films that further established him as a filmmaker known for his original surprise endings. However, the negative reception of Lady in the Water (2006), The Happening (2008), The Last Airbender (2010), and After Earth (2013) earned him eight nominations at the Golden Raspberry Awards, with The Last Airbender being considered one of the worst films ever made. After the box office success of the horror film The Visit in 2015, which earned him the Razzie Redeemer Award, his latest project, Old, was released on July 23, 2021. (Full list...)

Leptosia nina

Leptosia nina, known as the psyche, is a species of butterfly in the family Pieridae (the sulphurs, yellows and whites), found in the Indian subcontinent, southeastern Asia, and Australia. It has a small wingspan of 2.5 to 5 cm (1 to 2 in). The upper side of the otherwise white forewing has a large, somewhat pear-shaped, black spot; this spot is also present on the underside which is scattered with greenish dots and speckles, sometimes arranged in bands. This L. nina butterfly was photographed in Kerala, India.
