M. Night Shyamalan has unveiled the first poster for his newest film, Glass. After directing The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and The Village all around the turn of the century, Shyamalan quickly became an acclaimed director before disappearing for a while. He popped back onto the scene with his breakout horror hit Split starring James McAvoy which came out in 2016.
Fans of Unbreakable have been waiting almost two decades for a sequel, and now that Shyamalan’s back in the game with a new hit under his belt, he’s looking to combine the worlds of the two movies in his upcoming film, Glass.
Shyamalan used an announcement that there will be a panel for Glass at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con as an opportunity to show off the first poster. The image which you see above features James McAvoy as Crumb from Split alongside Bruce Willis as Dunn and Samuel L. Jackson as Dr. Glass from Unbreakable. Along with showing the ominous tagline, “you cannot contain who you are,” the image makes it look like the three of them are each incapacitated in some way, while their reflections reveal their true selves. Apparently, Crumb’s true self works out.
The film will pick up where Split left off, but it will feature Dr. Glass and Dunn in pursuit of Crumb for the iteration of his personality that has superhuman powers called the Beast. So the film will essentially be a sequel to both Split and Unbreakable, combining the two to create one big Shyamalan universe. Glass will be released January 18, 2019.
