Check This Out: Impressive New Poster for Dowdle Bros' Devil
Though most people seem to laugh anytime they see M. Night Shyamalan's name nowadays (which is a bit unfortunate), I'm personally still looking forward to watching Devil, the first movie in Shyamalan's Night Chronicles series. We already got to see an awesome first trailer for this last month, but Empire has debuted an impressive new poster for the film that you guys need to check out below. It's always great to see creative, smart designs like this being used for actual posters, but I think that's mainly because no one knows any of the cast in this. It's still a great poster so give it a look below. Can't wait to see this in September. Who else?
Devil is directed by Minnesota-born filmmakers/brothers Drew and John Eric Dowdle, of The Poughkeepsie Tapes and Quarantine, the remake of [Rec], previously. The screenplay for this was written by Brian Nelson, of both David Slade's Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night previously, and is based on a story conceived by M. Night Shyamalan, who also produced the film. This is the first in Shyamalan's The Night Chronicles series of thrillers. The second film in the series will be called Twelve Strangers. Universal Pictures is bringing Devil to theaters starting September 17th this fall. You can watch the official trailer for Devil here. Thoughts?

The trailer looked good for this and I imagine I'll still be wanting to see this even though M.Nights name is connected

hey, i liked PT and quarantine -(and while i'm not a fan of the stuck-in-one-place films, the devil being in that one place is sure to make this interesting. i'm hoping the dowdles will produce another winner with this one.

I MAY netflix this. I'm sure the Dowdles are good directors but after Last Airbender, I'm done giving M. Night my hard earned money. Hope you enjoy the flick. I'll read all about it.

Hey wait... I knew who one of the actors are. He was in An American Carol.

I disliked Quarantine. [Rec] was ten times better. However, the trailer for this looked good, and I'm interested. I have faith that M. Night can create good stories. I'm glad he's producing and not writing/directing as well. He seems best as a producer or cinematrapher. His visuals are great, but his directing of actors is less so. Here's to hoping for a good thriller!

#8 - i liked both REC and quarantine.....but i've heard this "i like REC better" before - however, it's essentially the same movie - i watched/liked them both. REC does give more backstory, but i read in a preview to Q2 that Q1 was just laying the framework for what happens in Q2 and there will be much more backstory in part 2.........also, the director (for Q2) said that his goals for the movieare not the same as what the people doing REC were aiming for. by the way - the description of Q2 and how it's happening at the same time as Q1 sounds really awesome. this is a very consolidated (and i'm sure unsatisfactory) summary of the Q2 preview -anyone interested in reading it? - check out bloodydisgusting for the full preview.....it's a good read. BTW - i'm looking forward to seeing REC2 and Q2.

I like the idea of M Night. Shamwow coming up with an idea and passing it on to someone else. Should be good =D

Definitely agree with 11. His last couple of films, which he's directed have been "not good" to put it lightly. That doesn't mean he isn't creative. Looking forward to how "Devil" will play out with him juat writing the story.

The "snosberry" guy from Super Troopers is in this so you shouldn't say that no one knows any of the actors ;o)

What's funny is that although the Inverted Cross has been adopted by satanic cults, it is tradionally known as the 'Cross of St. Peter' and is a Latin Christian symbol.
