Happy Tuesday MMT Fam! I am so excited about this next giveaway, as I have been waiting to screen this film since I first saw the trailer a few months ago! We’ve acquired 30 admit-two passes for the Philly advanced screening of SPLIT, the M. Night Shyamalan film starring James McAvoy.
Want to put your name in the hat to win a pass? You must be subscribed to this website and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “split” and your full name in the body. Thirty winners will be selected at random and notified on Sunday, January 15. And if you also follow MMT on Facebook, you will double your chances of winning!
I’ll definitely see the winners at this one! I love M. Night and if this is anything like the classic thrillers Raising Cain or Identity, which feature characters with dissociative identity disorder (what some still refer to as “split” personality), or even Frailty it should be one good ride!
You can read the synopsis and watch the trailer below, and get additional info about the film at the official website here. SPLIT opens in theaters nationwide on January 20.
Good Luck Family! Thomasena
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns to the captivating grip of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs with Split, an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. Following last year’s breakout hit The Visit, Shyamalan reunites with producer Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series, The Gift) for the film.
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.
For Split, Shyamalan and Blum reassemble their core team from The Visit, the No. 1 – grossing horror film of 2015. Their fellow collaborators include producer Marc Bienstock and executive producers Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider.
