In Split, director M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming film, actor James McAvoy plays a man suffering from multiple personalities.
How many personalities, you ask? Not two, not three, not even a dozen. In this psychological thriller, McAvoy’s character Kevin has 23 split personalities, some of which are potentially dangerous and even cruel.
Kevin himself is not a nice guy. He kidnaps three young women and keeps them in some sort of bunker, where his other “characters” guard and feed them. One of these characters is a little boy who befriends the women and tells them secrets about the other characters.
As the women try to figure out a way to escape, Kevin’s beastly new 24th personality – a combination of the 23 – starts to develop.
This movie also stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula, Haley Lu Richardson, Sterling K. Brown, Kim Director, and Brad William Henke, and will be released in Malaysia on Jan 19, 2017.
