Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have released the first images 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 breakout films, 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 These New Glass Images:
5) The Poster!
— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) July 12, 2018
As we previously mentioned, the poster feels like it’s returning to the comic book roots established in Unbreakable. Like his wardrobe, Jackson’s Elijah is draped in a purple tone. Matching his raincoat, Willis’ David is covered in a green hue. McAvoy’s Kevin is drenched in a yellow shade.
4) The Good, The Bad & The Ugly!
According to Entertainment Weekly, the trio are in the same mental intuition. David appears to be locked up in chains as the Beast is shouting at his therapist. They appear to be receiving treatment from a psychiatrist played by Sarah Paulson. Shyamalan describes her as, “It’s kind of the modern-day equivalent of ‘I think I’m Jesus’ or ‘I’m an emperor.’ ”
3) The Sequel!
Even the X-Men First Class actor was caught off-guard when he found out he was making a sequel to Unbreakable, as McAvoy reveals, ‘Really? We’re going to do a sequel to Split?’ He was like, ‘Yeah, you know, bring back David and all that.’ And I was like, David?”
2) Who’s Back!?!
As seen in the next image, Anya Taylor-Joy reprises her role as Casey Cooke, who continues to show kindness to Crumb. Last seen on Animal Kingdom, Spencer Treat Clark will return as David’s son, Joseph Dunn. Charlayne Woodard will again play Elijah’s Mother. David’s son and Elijah’s mom will play a bigger role in Glass.
The Village filmmaker tweets, “I’m so excited to tell you that @GlassMovie will be at #ComicCon. I will be in Hall H on July 20th with the cast! You can expect a surprise as well…” Will audiences get to see a trailer?
Glass will hit theaters on January 18, 2019.
