The long-anticipated trailer for Glass, the long-anticipated sequel to Unbreakable will be released in mere days at San Diego Comic-Con. Until then, Universal Pictures has release the teaser for the trailer for the sequel.
What does it show us? Not surprisingly, not much, other than a lot of images of shattered glass and a brief recap of James McAvoy’s character from writer/director M. Night Shyamalan’s 2017 thriller Split (which wound up being a stealth sequel to Shyamalan’s superhero origin story Unbreakable from 2000). The full trailer for Glass is set to make its appearance at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 this Friday.
This teaser follows the first look images that recently dropped on Entertainment Weekly, depicting the three main characters — McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb (aka “The Horde”), Bruce Willis as David Dunn, and Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price (aka "Mr. Glass") — in what appears to be an insane asylum.
Glass rounds out the trilogy beginning with Unbreakable and continuing with Split that makes up Shyamalan’s original superhero cinematic universe that takes place in what seems to be a grounded, present-day Philadelphia. Considering that Split ends with Dunn eating at a diner and Crumb at large, it remains to be seen how they wind up in the aforementioned asylum.
Glass opens in theaters on January 18, 2019.
