I want to precursor this trailer coverage with a highly known secret: I love James McAvoy. He is one of our most gifted actors. In fact, he is the most gifted. The Scottish actor can transform himself into a multitude of characters and has evocatively and passionately emoted them all.
Now he returns in M. Night Shyamalan’s horror Split. Can his talent triumph again?
Split revolves around a group of girls who are kidnapped by an unknown man and locked away in his basement. However, the soon discover that their kidnapper is host to 23 different personalities, and one of them is surely sinister.
When it comes to trailers, I always believe less is more and with this, I think there is too much given away. That being said, there are many elements of intrigue here, especially when it comes to James McAvoy playing 23 different people. Also, M. Night Shyamalan could be on a comeback, what with the success of The Visit and this may be his chance for horror domination again.
What do you think?
SPLIT IS OUT 20th JANUARY
