In its description, Universal Pictures, says, “This summer, visionary filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan unveils a chilling, mysterious new thriller about a family on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded beach where they are relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age rapidly … reducing their entire lives into a single day.”

The director of The Sixth Sense was last on the big screen with Glass, a psychological superhero thriller starring M. Night Shyamalan that debuted in 2019. He is currently producing Servant, which just debuted its second season on Apple TV. In October 2019, it was announced that the filmmaker was partnering with Universal Studios to release two new thrillers, written, produced and directed by Shyamalan.

Born in Mahé, Pondicherry, India, and raised in Penn Valley, Pennsylvania, Shyamalan made his directorial debut in 1992 with Praying with Anger. For The Sixth Sense, released in 1999, the filmmaker received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Director and the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. His films have grossed more than $3 billion globally.
