The biggest twists of M. Night Shyamalan’s Split (released in 2016) was that it turned out to be a sequel to 2000’s Unbreakable. Now, we’re just over two months shy of the release of Glass, a film that will mark Shyamalan’s first trilogy. In the latest trailer (at the bottom of the article) we see Casey Cooke (played by Anya Taylor-Joy) is back to face-off against “The Beast”!
There’s also a squad of cheerleaders chained to a table. Just saying.
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass. 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.
