Watch here the official trailer for Shyamalan’s new movie starring James McAvoy, Split.
Split is an original thriller from writer/director M. Night Shyamalan in which James McAvoy plays Kevin, a man with 24 distinct personalities. In anticipation for the January 20th release, Universal Pictures is inviting ComingSoon.net and Shock Till You Drop readers the chance to see the film early at a special advance screening at one of the 24 city screenings taking place on Friday, January 13th!
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns to the captivating grip of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs with Split, an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. Following last year’s breakout hit The Visit, Shyamalan reunites with producer Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series, The Gift ) for the film.
While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being.
Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abducting three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch ), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him—as well as everyone around him—as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
