The marketing for After Earth featured plenty of eye-popping scenes, but one of the most curious aspects of the campaign had to do with what the studio chose not to show: director M.

Diehard fans may know that The Sixth Sense wasn’t the only movie Shyamalan had out in 1999 — he had written the script for Stuart Little, which hit the same year.
