Old is a 2021 American thriller film written, directed, and produced by M. Night Shyamalan. It is based on the French-language Swiss graphic novel Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters. The film features an ensemble cast consisting of Gael Garcia Bernal, Vicky Krieps, Rufus Sewell, Alex Wolff, Thomasin Mckenzie, Abbey Lee, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Ken Leung, Eliza Scanlen, Aaron Pierre, Embeth Davidtz, and Emun Elliott. The plot follows a group of people who find themselves ageing rapidly on a secluded beach.
Shyamalan decided to adapt Sandcastle into a film after receiving it as a Father’s Day gift. The then-untitled project was announced in September 2019, with the filmmaker revealing a partnership with Universal Pictures. The following year, filming took place in the Dominican Republic for three months, during the Covid-19 pandemic, with cinematographer Michael Gioulakis.
Old premiered at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City on July 19, 2021, and was theatrically released in the United States on July 23. It has grossed $88.6 million worldwide and received mixed reviews from critics, with praise for the cinematography and concept, but criticism towards the screenplay and acting. The film’s themes and twist ending received a polarized response.
Old was originally going to be released by Universal Pictures on February 26, 2021, but in April 2020, the film was removed from the studio’s release schedule after its film Nobody was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In June 2020, Universal Pictures announced that Old would be theatrically released on July 23, 2021. A premiere for the film was held at jazz at Lincoln centre in New York City on July 19, 2021, which was attended by its cast and crew.
