There’s been plenty of excitement around this film for a while now.
Glass is the sequel to psychological thriller Split which features James McAvoy as “The Beast” with 23 separate personalities, all of which are as creepy as the last.
I knew he was a great actor before I saw that film but that role really showed off his acting credentials; in fact, I don’t think there’s many people in Hollywood that could have pulled it off.
At the end of the movie, it was revealed that both Split and another of M. Night Shyamalan’s superhero flicks, Unbreakable, exist in the same universe, leading onto the final instalment in the trilogy, Glass.
Previous trailers have shown the main characters of the two films together at a mental institution.
Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), David Dunn (Bruce Willis), and the man of many personalities (James McAvoy) are all patients being experimented on by Paulson’s Dr. Staple, and it’s clear she doesn’t have the best of intentions in mind.
However, the new trailer has been released and we get a glimpse of some other interesting stuff too.
Check it out:
It really does look fantastic.
Once we see Sarah Paulson’s Dr. Ellie Staple analysing the men and why they believe they have special powers, and what may or may not be the collective psychosis they all suffer from.
Really, though, it’s McAvoy wreaking havoc as the Beast we’re all bothered about.
Opening up about Glass‘ journey, Shyamalan recently said that the final chapter in the Unbreakable story was first envisioned almost 20 years ago.
“When I made Unbreakable, I kind of intended to do three movies. Just in my head, I was thinking to do that,” he explained, reflecting on the film’s wobbly reception.
“It wasn’t received well at the time. I just felt hurt, so I moved on, but it grew into this moment here where I wanted to make smaller movies, then I made Split and that was the opportunity to come back to it.”
Glass hits theatres on January 18th, 2019 – let’s hope it lives up to the trailers.
