New GLASS trailer – M. Night Shyamalan’s UNBREAKABLE and SPLIT sequel looks intense

M. Night Shyamalan surprised everyone with his psychological horror film SPLIT, when they realized at the end (spoilers if you haven’t seen it yet, and by now you really should have) that it was actually a sort of sequel to UNBREAKABLE. If you don’t remember UNBREAKABLE that well, or if you somehow missed it, that story follows a man named David Dunn (Bruce Willis) who miraculously survives a horrific train crash, only to discover he has superhuman powers. Dunn meets a mysterious man named Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), who likens his discovery to that of comic book legends, and it’s eventually revealed that Glass is actually the one who caused the train crash in an effort to find if someone like Dunn could actually exist… making Glass the comic book-like villain. In SPLIT, James McAvoy plays a man with multiple personalities who kidnaps young girls including Casey Cooke (Anya Taylor-Joy). As Casey fights to escape, she tries to manipulate the various personas within her captor’s mind, but discovers he may be hiding one particular identity that is beast-like and rather horrifying. In GLASS, the three men from these stories are united under the observation of Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson), who determines they believe they have superpowers even when they actually don’t… oh Ellie, are you in for a surprise. Casey is back too, but from the looks of the new trailer below, Mr. Glass may once again be manipulating the system for his own nefarious purposes. Take a look and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

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.

GLASS opens January 18, 2019
