Indian-American filmmaker M Night Shyamalan's last film The Last Airbender turned out to be a box office disappointment but the director has already moved on to his next Devil.
The Sixth Sense helmer debuted a short parody on MTV where he is shown taking aim at his own work.
The faux trailer stars Shyamalan, Avatar actor Stephen Lang, Penthouse Pet Ryan Keely and MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz.
The footage is set on an escalator which suddenly comes to a stop and features the stars, doing silly things as they are put in an "intense" situation.
Devil is set in an elevator of a building where several people are stuck and threatened by the devil in disguise.
Produced by M Night Shyamalan and Sam Mercer, the September 17 release is directed by John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle.
