Split 1

While we proposed that the films of M. Night Shyamalan have more to offer than first meets the eye, there is no denying that his last feature, The Visit, found him returning to more effective territory by reducing his scope. He’s now back with Blumhouse for his next project, Split, and the first trailer has arrived today.

Led by James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy, break-out star of The Witch, the film follows a man who endures a major loss and becomes haunted by a quartet of women who vie for his identity. Also starring Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula, and Haley Lu Richardson, check out the trailer and poster below, following the synopsis.

While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being.

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.
