Old clip: characters attempt an escape from M. Night Shyamalan thriller

Last Updated on August 10, 2021

Old, the latest thriller from M. Night Shyamalan, is now in theatres, and if you haven't gotten out to see the movie yet, we've managed to get our hands on another clip from it to offer you a glimpse at what you're missing. I'm in the "haven't watched Old yet" boat myself, so let's click Play on the video embedded below and find out what this clip has to show us.

Inspired by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters' French graphic novel Sandcastle (pick up a copy HERE), Old is 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. 

Sandcastle had the following description: 

It’s a perfect beach day, or so thought the family, young couple, a few tourists, and a refugee who all end up in the same secluded, idyllic cove filled with rock pools and sandy shore, encircled by green, densely vegetated cliffs. But this utopia hides a dark secret. First there is the dead body of a woman found floating in the crystal-clear water. Then there is the odd fact that all the children are aging rapidly. Soon everybody is growing older — every half hour — and there doesn’t seem to be any way out of the cove. 

The film's cast includes Gael Garcia Bernal, Thomasin McKenzie, Alex Wolff, Vicky Krieps, Ken Leung, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Abbey Lee, Aaron Pierre, Rufus Sewell, Embeth Davidtz, Eliza Scanlen, Emun Elliott, and Kathleen Chalfant.

Old is a Blinding Edge Pictures production. Shyamalan produced the film with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider served as executive producer.

As much as I miss the theatrical experience (and the large drinks with free refills and buttered popcorn), I actually still don't have plans to go out and see a movie in the theatre any time soon. Old is another on the "wait to watch at home" list for me.

Our reviewer The Iceman watched Old and gave it a 6/10 review.
