M. Night Shyamalan has opened up about his upcoming movie, which is called Old, and he’s claiming that it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before.
The film’s trailer was released no too long ago and the trailer had me really intrigued.
By the way, if you want to check out my first reaction to the film’s trailer, you can watch it here.
Old is based on a graphic novel called Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters.
The film has an incredible cast with the likes of Gael García Bernal, Vicky Krieps, Eliza Scanlen, Thomasin McKenzie, Alex Wolff, Abbey Lee, Aaron Pierre, Rufus Sewell, Ken Leung, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Embeth Davidtz, Emun Elliott, and Kathleen Chalfant all in the movie.
Old’s premise is also really interesting.
The entire film takes place on a beach where people start to age rapidly and they try desperately to find a way off said beach.
There’s going to be some very strange and probably quite distressing scenes in this movie.
The trailer was already pretty darn freaky, and I could imagine that this movie is going to be unlike anything I’ve seen before.
M. Night Shyamalan says Old is going to be unlike anything we’ve seen before
Here’s what Shyamalan had to say about his upcoming movie (via Dread Central):
No one has ever seen anything like it in its tone and the way it’s just, I mean, it’s like nothing else. I’m deciding on the minor note; how to end on a minor note. Unbreakable ends on a kind of a dip, right? He goes to the dark note, that minor note at the end. The guy you thought was the best friend is the villain. The minor note sticks to you forever. My father’s very old right now. He has dementia. He comes and goes. And the kids are now directing and singing concerts and, you know, when did this happen? So I made a movie about that feeling.
