Knock At The Cabin repeats an old trick
while the call the booth The poster appears to have diverged from Tremblay’s original novel, this isn’t the first time a Shyamalan film has downplayed its source material. In 2021, Shyamalan released the thriller Ancientwhich was a film adaptation of the graphic novel by Pierre Oscar Lévy and Frédérik Peeters Sandcastle. Nevertheless, Ancient He likewise stripped himself of any association with Sandcastleleaving many viewers assuming the film was Shyamalan’s original work rather than an adaptation.
Although Lévy and Peeters did not comment on the rather minimal recognition of their graphic novel when it came to Ancient‘s, Tremblay is certainly not doing the same. In response to a Twitter user who said he was uncomfortable with Tremblay’s lack of acknowledgment on the poster, Tremblay responded by saying “there is no need to be uncomfortable to the extent that they bought the rights and the book will appear in the credits of the film..” Tremblay acknowledges that while the rights to the adaptation were purchased, and that The Cabin at the End of the World will receive credit in call the boothyou still want credit where credit is due.
Given Tremblay’s comments, it will be interesting to see how close call the booth it sticks to the plot of its source material. It seems likely that Shyamalan’s film will deviate considerably from Tremblay’s story. call the booth it will be Tremblay’s first film adaptation of his work, and with good reason, he’s not quiet about making sure audiences know where the film’s story comes from. Given that Shyamalan now has a history of not giving authors much credit when adapting his books into movies, Tremblay’s vocal critiques may be key to ensuring this doesn’t happen again with a Shyamalan movie in the future. Although only one poster has been released so far, maybe the future call the booth promotional materials will finally give Tremblay the recognition it deserves.
