M. Night Shymalan brings back characters from Unbreakable and Split in his take on a comic book movie – that’s two decades in the making. More about the story is revealed in this new trailer.
It’s kinda hard to get excited about a Shymalan movie given the amount of duds he’s released. Glass has three great actors carrying it, though. Powerhouses Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Glass, Bruce Willis as strong man David Dunn, and James McAvoy as The Beast reprise their roles from previous films.
“M. 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.
