In the short parody featuring the filmmaker himself and Stephen Lang, some people begin doing silly things as an escalator suddenly comes to a stop.
After "The Last Airbender" proved to be disappointing, people begin to doubt M. Night Shyamalan's next film "Devil". But instead of worrying about the performance of the supernatural thriller, the filmmaker even takes aim at his own work by releasing "Escalation" trailer.
Debuted by MTV Movies, the faux trailer stars Shyamalan, Stephen Lang, Penthouse Pet Ryan Keely and MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz. The footage is set on an escalator which suddenly comes to a stop and features the stars, except the "Avatar" actor, doing silly things as they are put in an "intense" situation.
"Devil" itself is set in an elevator of a building where several people are stuck and threatened by the devil in disguise. Produced by M. Night Shyamalan and Sam Mercer, the September 17 release is directed by John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle.
