We’re getting closer to the release of Glass, the third chapter in the film series that kicked off with Unbreakable in 2000.
M. Night Shyamalan surprised audiences at the end of James McAvoy-starring thriller Split when it became clear that the film was in fact a sequel to Unbreakable, and now comes the film that pits the characters from both films in a showdown. A new one-minute television spot has arrived for the threequel, which finds Elijah Price/Mr. Glass ( Samuel L. Jackson) orchestrating a series of escalating encounters between the “unbreakable” David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and Kevin Wendell Crumb’s terrifying personality, The Beast (James McAvoy).
The promo below showcases a much more action-oriented chapter this time around, particularly as Dunn and The Beast duke it out. One can’t help but wonder what surprises the twist-happy Shyamalan has in store here. What’s Mr. Glass’ overall game? Is Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson) who she appears to be? We can’t wait to find out.
Glass, also bringing back Split‘s Anya Taylor-Joy as survivor Casey Cooke, will be opening in Australia on 17 January 2019 and in the US on 18 January 2019.
Official synopsis for 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.
This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who will executive produce.
