By Creative Media TimesA new trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s much-anticipated “Glass” is about to debut this weekend during San Diego Comic-Con, and today Universal released a teaser to that trailer, something that’s become pretty common to major upcoming studio films.
The teaser features the voice of James McAvoy’s The Beast, the character in last year’s blockbuster “Split” who has multiple personalities over a shattering glass.
The superhero horror-thriller is supposed to be the third installment in Shyamalan’s series following “Unbreakable” (2000) and “Split.” The film brings together the cast of Unbreakable such as Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Spencer Treat Clark, and Charlayne Woodard with that of Split including McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy. Sarah Paulson is also joining the film.
“Glass” is set for released on January 18, 2019. While we await for the full trailer, here is the film’s partial synopsis:
Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass.
From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.
Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
