Break glass in case of emergency -- the bad guys are teaming up.
During Comic-Con International in San Diego, director M. Night Shyamalan unveiled the first trailer for his highly-anticipated crossover film, Glass. The superhero movie brings characters from two of the director's previous films together, with Unbreakbale's Mr. Glass and David Dunn and Split's Kevin Wendell Crumb/The Beast sharing the same room.
The trailer finally gives us a glimpse at how all three characters will reunite on the big screen, and how Glass and The Beast will end up teaming up to take on Dunn's raincoat-clad superhero.
On top of that, the movie looks set to focus on the classic tropes of superhero storytelling, blended in with the high stakes of the real, modern world. In fact, it even looks as if the superheroes of Shyamalan's dark universe are about to become public knowledge -- and nothing will ever be the same again.
Directed and written by M. Night Shyamalan, Glass is slated for release Jan. 18, 2019. The film stars James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb/The Beast, Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price/Mr. Glass and Sarah Paulson as Ellie Staple.
