As promised earlier in the week, Universal Pictures released the first trailer for “Glass” to attendees of San Diego Comic-Con and the trailer was worth the wait. Fans on social-media seem very excited to see more from the upcoming thriller and everyone can get a first-look from the video below.
The film is scheduled to hit theaters in January, so you will have to keep this one on your radar for now, but we do know the casting and you can finally see the three characters from the two films together on one set. In the film, M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals; the 2000 hit “Unbreakable,” and the 2016 blockbuster “Split”.
From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series). This culmination of his worldwide blockbusters 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 and Kevin Frakes, who executive produce. Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum also serve as executive producers.

Glass will be released by Universal Pictures in North America on January 18, 2019, and by Buena Vista International abroad.
