After Glass, M. Night Shyamalan, the king of the final twist, is back with Old! Check out the trailer for this fantastic thriller slated for July 21 in France.
Last February, M. Night Shyamalan showed us 30 very intriguing little seconds of his new film, Old. This time, the filmmaker reveals a real trailer of 2 minutes 40.
Worn by Gael García Bernal, the thriller takes us to the tropics. The members of a family stop for a few hours on an isolated atoll.
They then observe with dismay that their aging is drastically accelerated and that their entire life will be reduced to this last day. They wanted to slow down on vacation, they had no doubt that the opposite would happen …
The director of Unbreakable and Sixth Sense seems to summon the ghosts of Lost and Benjamin Button, all in a heavy and anxiety-provoking atmosphere.
In any case, the director does not enlighten us more on the plot with this trailer, rewarding us with new images even more mysterious than the February teaser. We just learn that the family is on this strange beach for good reason, according to Gael García Bernal’s character.
Children also discover an esoteric message including signs to decipher. Perhaps it contains the way to escape from this underworld beach. To find out, we will have to wait until July 21.
Around Gael García Bernal, we find Vicky Krieps, Alex Wolff, Ken Leung, Rufus Sewell and Thomasin McKenzie.
Note that Old is adapted from Sand castle, novel graphic by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters. M. Night Shyamalan received this book as a gift for Father’s Day. He loved the story so much that he didn’t hesitate to buy the rights to bring it to the big screen.
The director wrote the scenario in his corner, arranging the work to his sauce, confirms the designer Frederik Peeters at the microphone of BFM:
“All this is done by intermediaries. I have a contract to sign, a sum of money, and so on. In this kind of situation, either you get completely involved in the project and you lose your energy for a film that has all the chances of being mediocre (it’s purely statistical), either one file the keys and one returns in its cave. I had already done that when Arte adapted Blue Pills. As Woody Allen says, ‘take the’ sorrel and go ‘. “
