Look, it’s not like any of us was planning an island vacation anytime soon, but M. Night Shyamalan sure isn’t helping things with his latest trailer. Premiering during the Super Bowl, this first look at Shyamalan’s Old follows Gael García Bernal as he ages into Rufus Sewell? It’s unclear.

Shyamalan has been keeping this one pretty under wraps. Here’s what we know: Old is based on the Pierre Oscar Lévy and Frederik Peeters’ graphic novel Sandcastle. In the graphic novel, a seemingly idyllic island paradise contains true horrors, as a dead body is discovered and children begin aging rapidly (a 6-year-old boy ages into Alex Wolff aka the brother from Hereditary within hours). The film also stars Vicky Krieps, Thomasin McKenzie, Eliza Scanlen, and Embeth Davidtz.

Old is set to release in theaters July 23, at which point we will presumably also have aged several decades.
