Warner Bros. has officially released the trailer for the new M. Night Shyamalan thriller Trap, starring Josh Hartnett, Saleka Shyamalan, Hayley Mills and Marnie McPhail.

Taking place at a pop star’s concert, Hartnett leads the film and is see in the trailer in character with his daughter Jody at Lady Raven’s concert. Midway through the show, Hartnett’s character pops out to use the bathroom, only to see that there seems to be heavy police presence surrounding the concert venue and encroaching inside. He quickly learns that they are here after receiving a tip that a famed serial killer is on the loose and is at the concert venue. The plot twist, later reveals that Hartnett is the killer they are looking for as it cuts to a shot of him checking his phone and watching a live feed of a victim he is holding hostage. The trailer ends with Hartnett’s manic look, seemingly laughing to himself.

The film’s official tagline reads that it follows a “father and teen daughter attending a pop concert, where they realize they’re at the center of a dark and sinister event.” Those in attendance at this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas would have had the first look at the trailer already. This summer is looking to be a big one for the Shyamalan family. M. Night Shyamalan also produced The Watchers, written by his daughter Ishana Night Shyamalan. His other daughter Saleka, stars in Trap as the Lady Raven pop star.

Trap hits theaters on August 9. Watch the trailer above.
