A group of adults and children head to a gorgeous, secluded beach for the day, only to discover they appear to be ageing super-quickly before their eyes, a bit like me when my child tried to explain Roblox.
Pre-teens are suddenly adults, the body of a young woman decomposes in record time.
Here’s the synopsis though to be fair I’ve told you most of it already:
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.
It all looks very eerie and I will be very interested when it comes out to see how different age groups react to it. It’s out in UK cinemas on 23 July.
