Universal Pictures is getting cute with the release of Glass, M. Night Shyamalan‘s follow-up film to both Unbreakable (2000) and last year’s hit, Split. Yesterday saw the release of a teaser trailer for James McAvoy‘s return as The Beast; today’s release of a David Dunn (Bruce Willis) teaser establishes a pattern. You can probably look forward to a Samuel L. Jackson-focused video tomorrow ahead of the film’s new trailer this Friday, likely timed to the film’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Keep those eyes open!
Also starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Sarah Paulson, Spencer Treat Clark, and Charlayne Woodard, Glass opens in theaters on January 18, 2019.
Check out the second of the character teasers for Glass below:
Here’s the official synopsis for Glass:
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).
This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters is produced by Shyamalan and Blumhouse Production’s 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 and Kevin Frakes, who executive produce. Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum also serve as executive producers.
A Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse production, Glass will be released by Universal Pictures in North America on January 18, 2019, and by Buena Vista International abroad.
