The culmination of the stories laid out in M. Night Shyamalan’s 2000 Unbreakable and 2016’s Split arrives with 2019’s Glass. Universal Pictures’ second full trailer for Glass shows Elijah Price (played by Samuel L Jackson) asking Kevin Crumb (played by James McAvoy) to unleash The Beast in order to free them from jail and reveal to the world their incredible powers. The trailer also reveals new footage from the film showing The Beast wreaking havoc.
M. Night Shyamalan wrote, directed, and produced Glass. Jason Blum and Blumhouse Production also produced the film along with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock. Steven Schneider, Kevin Frakes, Gary Barber, and Roger Birnbaum served as executive producers.
Universal Pictures is set to release Glass in North America on January 18, 2019. Buena Vista International is handling the international distribution.
The Glass Plot:
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.
Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series).
