M. Night Shyamalan's new scary movie is among six new releases in Irish cinemas this weekend
If you'd like to spend a few hours in a big air conditioned room!
Another week, and another impressive set of new releases in cinemas around Ireland.
Some are big releases and will be available pretty much everywhere, while others will likely only be available in the smaller, arthouse cinemas, but all six of the below movies will arrive in Irish cinemas on Friday, 23 July.
The masterfully scary mind behind The Sixth Sense, Signs, The Visit and Split is back to freak you out again this summer, with M. Night Shyamalan bringing a group of strangers to a beautiful beach... only for them all to discover there seems to be no way off. And weirder still, everyone suddenly begins ageing at a rapid speed, and they'll all die of old age within a day if they don't find a way to escape.
We chatted to Shyamalan himself about the movie, and you can check out that interview in full right here:
