McAvoy’s character has Dissociative Identity Disorder (aka Multiple Personality Disorder). M. Night Shyamalan is making a comeback with this new thriller and Universal has released the latest trailer for Split, a suspense thriller in which James McAvoy plays a kidnapper with 23 personalities vying for dominance in his body and Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) as one of the young girls he’s taken hostage.
Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities—each with unique physical attributes—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.
Split hits theaters on January 20, 2017.
