Trailer For M. Night Shyamalan’s Thriller Old – Stuck On A Beach As Your Life Flashes In Front Of Your Eyes


Rufus Sewell as Charles in Old, written for the screen and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

A trailer has dropped for the mysterious new thriller feature film, Old. This summer film comes from the visionary filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. In his films, we have come to expect a big twist. Some have worked better than others. But he is an amazing filmmaker in his use of our senses of sight and sound to make us uncomfortable. Generally, I find his films to be very entertaining and a good time. So what does Old have in store for us? Let’s check out the trailer and find out!

Lots of moments in the trailer for Old that are very uncomfortable. Just the notion of getting old itself is bad enough. But what about seeing our little ones grow up too fast? That’s already a problem at regular speed! Now add the terrifying idea of being stuck on a beach with strangers where this is happening along with something lurking in the shadows and we got ourselves a movie!


Let’s not also ignore the awesome international talent that is in this film including Golden Globe winner Gael García Bernal, Vicky Krieps, Rufus Sewell, Ken Leung, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Abbey Lee, Aaron Pierre, Alex Wolff, Embeth Davidtz, Eliza Scanlen, Emun Elliott, Kathleen Chalfant,  and Thomasin McKenzie.

Here is the synopsis for Old: 

This summer, visionary filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan unveils a chilling, mysterious new thriller about a family on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded beach where they are relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age rapidly … reducing their entire lives into a single day.
