With the rising COVID-19 vaccination rate and the removal of the requirement to wear masks nationwide, more and more Americans are returning to movie theaters this summer.Memorial Day weekend Seeing box office revenue over 100 million U.S. dollars This is the first time since early 2020, supported by the release of “A Quiet Place Part Two” and “Walt Disney’s Crura”.
In late July, when M. Night Shyamalan’s highly anticipated feature film “Old” is about to be released in theaters, the public experience of the theater may bring some unique experiences.
At the Tribeca Film Festival (the first face-to-face film festival in the United States since the beginning of 2020), Shyamalan said that “Old” will provide moviegoers with things they have never seen before.
“No one has seen something similar-its tone and manner, I mean, it’s different from anything else,” Shyamalan said, passing Hollywood Report.
“Old” is adapted from the graphic novel “Sandcastle” by Frederik Peeters and Pierre Oscar Lévy, which tells the story of a family’s distressing beach vacation in a mysterious place that accelerates aging.A kind Trailers released during the Super Bowl Earlier this year, we saw what this concept looks like on the screen, but the full trailer released in early June explained the concept more clearly.
The cast of this movie is led by Vicky Cripps, Alex Wolf, Gail Garcia Bernal, Eliza Scanlon and Thomasine McKenzie Starring. According to the trailer, the characters’ self-perception and age do not always seem to be consistent with their bodies, which creates an interesting contrast, as a group of people on the beach are trying to understand the mystery of their plight.
Shyamalan grew up in Lower Merion and now lives in Chester County. He explained that the changes in his personal life inspired him to write “Old”. From witnessing his father suffering from dementia to celebrating the achievements of his young adult daughter, he has found material to explore in the pain of aging.
“Old” was filmed on a beach in the Dominican Republic, where Shyamalan’s actors and staff completed the production without anyone participating in the project contracted with COVID-19. The biggest threats during the production of “Old” were hurricanes and beach erosion.
A storm destroyed the set, forcing the crew to postpone filming and rebuild.
“We were very lucky. On the first day, part of the beach came back, so we shot there, and then we became very familiar with nature, such as the tides and storms 100 miles away, and how many times the sea water came up in a day every minute, “Samalan said. “To be honest, we were allowed to be on that beach. It was nature that allowed us to be there. We have 40 days, I don’t know, we need good weather for 40 days-we have good weather for 40 days.”
“Old” will be Shamaran’s first feature film since the completion of the “Unbreakable” and “Split” trilogy “Glass” in 2019. The film is scheduled to be released on July 23.
