Universal Pictures has released a trailer of ”The Six Sense” and “Signs” director M.Night Shayamalan’s next horror flick, “Knock at the Cabin.”
The film is based on Paul G Tremblay’s novel “The Cabin at the End of the World” which depicts a family-of-three who are taken hostage when vacationing in the woods. Instead of a ransom, the kidnappers demand that one member sacrifice themselves in order to prevent the apocalypse.
The previous trailer only hinted at the carnage that could unfold, the new trailer captured a glimpse of the world being decimated, with a news channel clip showing several people running as danger looms, begins to shed light on this cinematic wonder. The film boasts stars like Dave Bautista, Jonathan Groff and Nikki Amuka-Bird.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year, Shyamalan explained why he chose Bautista for the part of the crazed villain, revealing he was impressed by the former wrestler’s work in “Blade Runner 2049.”
“I was really taken by what Denis [Villeneuve] and Dave did in that scene in “Blade Runner 2049.” He was still in a way that was powerful,” he said. “There’s a type of stillness where you’re not doing nothing; you’re doing everything and you’re still. Every cell in your body will do what it’s supposed to do if you’re thinking something correctly.
“Dave was embodying all of this philosophy in that scene. I didn’t know who he was at that time, and he was stuck in my head. So when this script came, I was like, ‘There seems to be one guy who can play this giant human being and do the stillness.’ So I asked Dave [to play the part],” he added.
“Knock at the Cabin“ arrives on the big screen Friday, Feb. 3. It is only the second movie in Shyamalan’s oeuvre to receive an R-rating since 2008’s “The Happening.”
