Last year M. Night Shyamalan announced his new movie titled Old and a poster for the film. Old is inspired by the French graphic novel Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Levy and artist Frederik Peeters. Shyamalan purchased rights to the graphic novel, which served as a launching point for the upcoming feature-length film. 

Sandcastle follows a group of 13 people who aren’t able to leave a mysterious, secluded beach that hides a dark secret involving time. The graphic novel is described as an existential horror about the inevitability of death. Old will differ from Sandcastle by exploring the symbolic mystery at its core, which is why it’s not considered an actual adaptation of the graphic novel. 

Until today we haven’t had further information about Old outside of a five-second teaser trailer Shyamalan shared on his Twitter account. That all changes today now that the trailer has finally arrived. Get out your M. Night Shyamalan movie theory boards and check it out:
