We only got a tiny nibble of M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming new film “Old” during the Super Bowl. Today Universal Pictures gave us a full plate by dropping the film’s first trailer. I don’t like to put too much into trailers as they have shown to be pretty unreliable when it comes to gauging movies. But this one has me really interested in Shyamalan’s latest effort. The film looks weird, creepy, and it has the kind of mindbending plot I can really get into.
Shyamalan puts together an intriguing cast for his horror thriller about vacationing families on a secluded tropical beach. Their time of relaxing family fun turns to terror once they begin to age incredibly fast. To make matters worse, every attempt to leave the beach is repelled by unknown forces. The film features Gael García Bernal, Vicky Krieps (so good in “The Phantom Thread”), Thomasin McKenzie, Rufus Sewell, Eliza Scanlen, Alex Wolff, and more. While many people are still leery when it comes to Shyamalan, I enjoyed each of his last three movies. So sign me up.
“Old” opens in theaters July 23rd. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
