Not only does M. Night Shyamalan appear to be making a comeback, but actress Anya Taylor-Joy is on a major streak in the horror world.  Her breakout role came earlier this year with The Witch, but with the just released trailer for Shyamalan’s latest, Taylor-Joy looks like a force to be reckoned with. While it appears to start off as your typical abduction thriller, McAvoy’s turn as the kidnapper gets even creepier with his split personality disorder.  His performance in the trailer alone makes this film look worthwhile. Let’s just hope Shyamalan has left the twists behind.

Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula, and Haley Lu Richardson also star.  Split will be released in theaters on January 20th, 2017.

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 abduct 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.
