split_trailer_2M. Night Shyamalan surprised us all with The Visit, a sharp little film that proved he still had it. The trailer for his next film, looks just as intriguing, in a gleefully absurd way. In it, a man (James McAvoy) suffering from┬ásplit personality harbors over 23 characters (so specific!) in his head and kidnaps three women, amongst them The Witch’s Anya Taylor-Joy.┬áThe film looks totally crazy and I can’t wait to see more, but I’m also wondering if it’ll address the idea of mental illness in a way that isn’t shallow.

I’m rooting for you M. Night. Split hits theatres January 20th, 2017.
