During San Diego Comic-Con ’18, Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have released the official trailer to the highly anticipated comic book thriller, Glass, starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and James McAvoy. Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan reunites the cast in the upcoming crossover of his masterpieces, Unbreakable, and Split.
Following the conclusion of Split, David Dunn [Wills] pursues Kevin Wendell Crumb [McAvoy]’s superhuman figure of The Beast. During their series of escalating encounters, the shadowy presence of Elijah Price [Jackson] emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.”
5 Reasons We Love the official trailer to Glass:
5) They’re Captured!
As we previously mentioned, the trio appear to be receiving treatment from a psychiatrist played by Sarah Paulson. The trailer opens up with a silent and uneasy introduction by Dr. Ellie Staple (Paulson). She’s amazed by the three, even thrilled by the way to meet them, but what are her true intentions?
4) The Good, The Bad & The Ugly!
David (Wills) appears to be reluctant to be putting the costume back on. We get glimpses of him taking on the entire police force. Crumb (McAvoy) appears to be killing innocent girls as The Beast. Incarcerated at the end of Unbreakable, did Elijah (Jackson) find a way to bring those two together?
3) The Bad Guys Team-Up!
The bad guys are joining forces together as The Beast and Elijah find themselves locked in the same room together. Still fascinated by comic books, Elijah appears to have rigged the battle between The Beast, the villain who fights with his hands, and Dunn. Who will win in the end?
2) She’s Back!?!
Anya Taylor-Joy reprises her role as Casey Cooke. There was an image released before of Casey showing kindness to Crumb. Is she there to help him control the Beast within him?
With the panel moderated by Yvette Nicole Brown, Shyamalan discussed how Glass came together, as Jackson hilariously interrupted and chimed in to say “I don’t play the same motherf*cker all the time.”
Glass will hit theaters on January 18, 2019.
