First Clip: M. Night's "Old"

 

While M. Night Shyamalan's new film Old (out next Friday, July 23rd) will grapple with the idea of a bunch of people mysteriously aging at a rapid rate on a secluded beach, the new clip shows that perhaps M. Night's style will allow it to work on-screen. Released on BD Horror Trailers and Clips, the scene seems to take place right when the three children protagonists are transitioning into their teenage selves. Essentially, the inciting incident of the story. Though the real trick here is M. night's use of the camera to mask the confusion. A testament to his particular style that likes to keep the camera focused on seemingly ordinary moments that become unsettling the longer the camera remains. Check out the clip below:

Old stars 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.
