Warner Bros. Pictures has dropped a new trailer for The Watchers (or The Watched if you're in the UK), a horror movie from producer M. Night Shyamalan written and directed by his daughter, Ishana Night Shyamalan.

Based on the novel by A.M. Shine, the film follows Mina, a 28-year-old artist, who gets stranded in an expansive, untouched forest in western Ireland. When Mina finds shelter, she unknowingly becomes trapped alongside three strangers who are watched and stalked by mysterious creatures each night.

However, while you can’t see them, they see everything.

This latest sneak peek ups the ante and dials up the creepiness for a movie which looks nothing short of terrifying. Shyamalan has a lifetime of seeing her father's work to prepare her for this, and she previously helmed episodes of Apple TV+'s Servant, a series on which her father served as showrunner. 

Talking to Variety, M. Night addressed this movie and Trap both arriving in theaters over the summer. "It just played out this way," he admitted. "It was just: What is the best date for that movie and what is the best day for this movie? And it turned out it was in the same summer."

As for what drew her to filmmaking, Ishana tells the trade, "The training from him has existed my whole life...I’ve moved through different forms of art throughout my whole life and kind of later in life came to filmmaking. But there’s really been no other option in terms of my psyche – I’ve only felt that I think I need to be doing art to survive."

Check out the latest trailer for The Watchers below.

The Watchers stars Dakota Fanning (Once Upon a Time in HollywoodOcean’s Eight), Georgina Campbell (BarbarianSuspicion), Oliver Finnegan (Creeped OutOutlander) and Olwen Fouere (The NorthmanThe Tourist). The film is produced by M. Night Shyamalan, Ashwin Rajan and Nimitt Mankad. The executive producers are Jo Homewood and Stephen Dembitzer. 

Joining writer/director Shyamalan behind the camera are director of photography Eli Arenson (LambHospitality), production designer Ferdia Murphy (LolaFinding You), editor Job ter Burg (BenedettaElle) and costume design by Frank Gallacher (SebastianAftersun). The music is by Abel Korzeniowski (TillThe Nun). 

The Watchers is set to open in theaters internationally beginning on 5 June 2024 and in North America on June 7, 2024.
