Glass Trailer (2019)
Trailer for Glass, starring James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Anya Taylor-Joy, Sarah Paulson and Samuel L. Jackson.
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.
Just in case you've been living underneath a rock, Glass is the culmination of Unbreakable, which came out almost two decades ago, and M. Night Shyamalan's recent horror flick Split. The director acknowledges that this installment does make for a trilogy. While we'd have to double-check, this could make for the largest gap in any film trilogy. But, do correct us in the comments if there is another trilogy on record with a greater gap than what's witnessed here.
Glass marks the fourth time that Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson have shared the screen together.
Wow! To be honest, I had no idea what to expect. It's M. Night Shyamalan after all, and his record is far from flawless. But, when this director delivers, he delivers in a big way. So we are presented with a story that combines two stories that took place nearly two decades apart. The combination is odd, but also weirdly fitting.
While Glass could represent a big return for Shyamalan, it instantly showcases a film with quite the ensemble. The addition of Sarah Paulson is wonderful, as the actress seems to fit the franchise's -- what's the word -- look and feel. But then we have Willis, Jackson, McAvoy and Taylor-Joy all sharing the screen. Each one a strong talent, and they seem to play off one another perfectly. I for one can't wait to see this reunion of sorts between the characters Casey and Crumb.
So far so good! But, with everything M. Night Shyamalan, it's hard to guess the final product until exiting the theater.
