The idea of being renewed is essential. I wanna start over and come up with a new style.
Old is out in the UK this Friday (23 July) and to stoke our interest there’s a new featurette by its writer-director M Night Shyamalan. Check it out below and find out why — despite Old‘s darkness — it’s not horror…
Here’s the synopsis, and scroll down for the featurette:
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.
Old is directed by M. Night Shyamalan from his screenplay based on the graphic novel Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Lévy and Frederik Peeters.
