Shyamalan will premiere his new film on February 3, starring Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint and Jonathan Groff. Universal has posted a new trailer.

M. Night Shyamalan charges with a new project after Time. The current box office, after the COVID-19 pandemic, does not work as before and now only films related to great sagas or franchises thrive. No matter how prestigious a director he is, that does not mean that his work is going to succeed today. Shyamalan, a highly regarded filmmaker, will land on February 3, 2023 in theaters with his new film, They Knock on the Door. Then we leave you with the new trailer of the feature film in question, published by Universal:

A knock on the door is Shyamalan in its purest form

Based on the novel ‘The Cabin at the End of the World’ by Paul Tremblay, the synopsis tells the following: “During a vacation in a cabin in the woods far from everything, a girl and her parents become hostages to four armed strangers who they force the family to make an impossible choice to prevent the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what to believe before all is lost.” Shyamalan returns to the closed spaces with a scandalous cast: Dave Bautista, Jonathan Groff, Rupert Grint, Ben Aldridge, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Abby Quinn, William Ragsdale and Kristen Cui.

They knock at the door takes up that theatrical staging by Shyamalan with a minimalist cast and some simple artistic sections that let all the weight fall on the script, bathed in what seems like suspense with script twists that we won’t even see coming and a purpose extremely strange that, in fact, we will also see raised in HBO’s The Last of Us: Would we sacrifice someone in our family to prevent the apocalypse? Shyamalan again brings difficult decisions to the table with a series of unique characters. The situation that Knocks on the door proposes is extreme.
