Old clip: Rufus Sewell makes accusations in M. Night Shyamalan thriller

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

The July 23 theatrical release of M. Night Shyamalan’s Old is quickly approaching, and today we’ve gotten our hands on a new clip from the film, one which features a contentious character played by Rufus Sewell of the sci-fi classic Dark City (watch it HERE). While Sewell has been working steadily for decades, it has been several years since I’ve seen anything he was in, so it’s nice to see him in this. The clip can be seen in the embed above, and is followed by the film’s trailer.

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.

In addition to Sewell, the film stars Gael Garcia Bernal, Vicky Krieps, Thomasin McKenzie, Ken Leung, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Abbey Lee, Aaron Pierre, Alex Wolff, 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.
