Ok, altered-reality. The film puts together the odd trio of Bruce Willis’ David Dunn (a veritable superman), Samuel L. Jackson’s Elijah Price (the fragile villain known as Mr. Glass), and the 24 personalities residing inside James McAvoy’s Kevin Wendell Crumb. The poster, while doing the thing where the names don’t line up with the stars, shows the real people (all afflicted and Othered in some way) casting the shadows of their super alter-egos.
Take a look:
Since Crumb’s debut in Split was unexpectedly revealed (in classic Shyamalan fashion) to be in the Unbreakable universe, hopes have been high for the trilogy’s completion. The colors are big, the supers are alternatively imprisoned, institutionalized, or trapped within the confines of their more in-charge personalities, and the team-up seems tenuous at best - a film ripe with the possibilities of superdrama.
The first real trailer for the film may debut alongside the SDCC panel, but any news is welcome ahead of its premiere next year. Glass opens in theaters on January 18.
