The first full trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Old has been released and it finds a group of people aging with horrifying alacrity on a beach as their family vacation turns into a time-bending nightmare.
The film is inspired by the graphic novel “Sandcastle” by Pierre Oscar Levy and artist Frederik Peeters. The filmmaker recently told “Entertainment Weekly” that he discovered the graphic novel when it was given to him by his daughters:
“It’s based on this graphic novel that I was given from my daughters. I read it, and the premise was so powerful, of these people that went to this beach and their experience that happens on that day in the beach…I thought it was very frightening and emotional, and the ideas just started coming, and I tracked down the owner, and the person that wrote it. It was just a beautiful thing, and kind of touching, that it came from my daughters, this story about getting older very, very quick.”
Old stars Gael García Bernal, Thomasin McKenzie, Vicky Krieps, Rufus Sewell, Ken Leung, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Abbey Lee, Aaron Pierre, Alex Wolff, Embeth Davidtz, Eliza Scanlen, Emun Elliott, and Kathleen Chalfant.
