It almost feels like M. Night Shyamalan’s latest, Glass, has been in production forever. Thankfully the wait is almost over. Today a new trailer dropped to drive most people into a tizzy with anticipation. Take a gander.
Color me impressed. That looks decidedly bigger and a whole lot wilder than the initial footage would have you believe. There’s a lot of action. Villains teaming up. James McAvoy in questionable pants that make it look like he’s wearing no pants. What’s more, even Bruce Willis seems to be bringing the goods here. Which is rare these days.
As per usual, here’s the lengthy official synopsis to bring some of you up to speed:
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.
Shyamalan has proved to be something of a contentious director, over the course of his career. The early part is the most celebrated, with a few films that are sure to cause fights among friends, depending on where people stand. Split seemed to course correct that partially, gaining him more favor with (some would say The Visit) and it looks like he’s going all out with Glass.
Do you all like this trailer? Are you ready for the final chapter of this trilogy? Did you ever think we’d see the finish of the story? Is any one else confused by those fleshy colored pants? Let us know in the comments below. We just have to wait a few more months till January 18th, when Glass shatters across the screen.
