M. Night Shyamalan has a new movie coming out with Trap which stars Josh Hartnett, but you might not want to watch the trailer, and I wish that I didn’t.

As it’s an M. Night Shyamalan movie, you know it features a twist, but guess what? They reveal it in the trailer.

I suppose that is part of the movie and what makes it different and unique, and who knows, maybe there are more twists, but if you dig M. Night Shyamalan movies, don’t watch the trailer at all.

The official description doesn’t feature the spoiler, but around 1:45 into the trailer is when the big reveal comes. So there’s your warning. Watch below if you want but you will wish you hadn’t.

Update: Shyamalan has released the first poster with a song from the movie.
