Split personalities converge on the ‘Glass’ poster
Eagerly anticipated by moviegoers for nearly two decades, writer and director M. Night Shyamalan is finally set to deliver a sequel to “Unbreakable,” spinning out of the events of his 2016 surprise spinoff “Split.” “Glass,” set to hit theaters early next year, brings together the narratives from both films for a new comic-book thriller. Today, Universal Pictures has delivered the first “Glass” poster, which you can check out below.
“Glass” sees Bruce Willis return as David Dunn alongside Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price (also known by his pseudonym Mr. Glass) and James McAvoy, who reprises his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within. “Glass” also features the return of “Split” star Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke and “Unbreakable” stars Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, respectively. The film will also feature Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (“American Horror Story”) in an all-new role.
Following the conclusion of “Split,” “Glass” finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
In addition to the reveal of the official poster, Universal Pictures has confirmed that Shyamalan and the cast of “Glass” will headline a panel at Comic-Con International San Diego on July 20. It’s quite likely that the event will also bring about a teaser for the film, so check back right here in three weeks.
“Glass” 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, who executive produces. 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.
