Watch the new trailer for Trap, M. Night Shyamalan's latest flick, below.


Now that you have seen the trailer, let's break down what we know about the plot.

The movie seems to follow a father and daughter, as the father is taking his child to her favorite pop star's concert. It starts off very lighthearted, as the man is just happy to see his daughter enjoying the concert of her idol.

But is something more sinister going on? As the father heads to the bathroom, he notices a group of police guarding the area around them. It seems like something else is going on at this concert.

After approaching a random concession worker, the father finds out the entire concert was set up to help catch some deranged serial killer called "The Butcher." Sounds crazy, right? The man should be scared for his daughter, right?

Well, let's mix in a little M. Night twist in there. The father is The Butcher. Instead of a movie surrounding a father and daughter trying to break out of a concert and get away from a killer, the plot instead follows the killer himself, as he tries to escape the concert.
