Throughout his career, director M. Night Shyamalan has shocked fans with ambitious and unique storytelling and twists, and his new thriller Old will be no different, according to the Tribeca Film Festival.
” No one has ever seen anything like it, in its tone and in the way it tells itself, I mean, Old is a film that looks like nothing else, ” commented the director, raising the hype of his fans. Also, although the film will be out in just over a month, the author confessed that he is still working on the finale: “ I’m still trying to decide how to end the film, I’m trying to find a minor note. I would like to end on a minor note because, for example, Unbreakable ends similarly, right? A big revelation: the guy you thought was the best of friends is actually the bad guy … the minor note stays with you forever. “
As seen in the official trailer for Old, the film tells the story of a group of people who go on vacation to an island and discover that time passes quickly there, to the point that, starting to age rapidly, their life will only last one day. Shyamalan, who based his screenplay on the graphic novel Sandcastle, commented, ” My dad is very old right now, and he’s suffering from dementia. Something that comes and goes. And I’ve tried to make a movie about that feeling .”
In the cast, we remember him, Gael García Bernal, Vicky Krieps, Alex Wolff, and Thomasin McKenzie. The release date is set – in the US – for July 23 next.
