Glass: Heroes are real and they're nuts in latest trailer for the M. Night Shyamalan sequel

Blowing your own "Glass" can be an expensive and dangerous process, so M. Night Shyamalan went ahead and did it for you. That's right, a new trailer is here for the filmmaker's sequel to Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016), which stars Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and James McAvoy.

The three actors are reprising their roles of David Dunn, Elijah Price/Mr. Glass, and Kevin Wendell Crumb, respectively.

Watch the exciting preview for the movie below:

Set in a more grounded universe where super powers exist, Glass will follow three incredibly damaged individuals with unique abilities. Dunn can sense people's evil deeds just by touching them, Price is a psychopathic genius, and Crumb's got two dozen personalities inside his head.

Over the last 18 years, Price has been heavily sedated and nearly given up on life, just as Crumb and Dunn arrive at the mental hospital he's been in since 2000. How Dunn ended up there, since he looked like a free man in that diner at the end of Split, we can only guess.

Anya Taylor-Joy returns as Casey Cooke from Split; her character is perhaps the only person who can calm Crumb's 24th personality, "The Beast." While assuming this identity, Crumb is super-strong, impervious to bullets, and without remorse.

Joining this universe is Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) as Dr. Ellie Staple, a psychologist who doesn't believe that these people actually have supernatural abilities, preferring to believe that they have over-exercised "delusions of grandeur."

She develops a flashbulb treatment that forces Crumb's different personalities to manifest themselves whenever a bright light flashes before his eyes. Price ends up abusing this technique in order to draw out The Beast and allow them to escape. The only person who might be able to stop them is Dunn.

Glass shatters into theaters on January 18, 2019.
