The epic teaser trailer for Man Down hit the interweb this week and left a lot of fans questioning: What happened in that room?! Performance artist Shia LaBeouf stars as a U.S. marine who finds himself under interrogation by Captain Peyton (Gary Oldman) after a mysterious event may or may not have led to the death of his friend (Jai Courtney).
Oscar-nominee James McAvoy is (literally) like you’ve never seen him before in the ultra-creepy second trailer for M. Night Shyamalan‘s Split. The highly anticipated horror thriller follows three girls who are kidnapped by a man with a whopping 23 personalities, a couple of which include an older woman with a fondness for tea and a nine-year-old boy named Hedwig.
The second trailer for Nocturnal Animals features an all-star ensemble cast including Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Michael Shannon, while the teaser trailer for Gore Verbinski‘s psychological thriller A Cure for Wellness offers up some of the most deranged imagery you’ll see this pre-Halloween week. ~Shelby Morton
