Spilt, released near the very beginning of 2017, was a return to form for M. Night Shyamalan. One horror’s hottest rising stars in the late 1990s, the filmmaker became a parody of himself with a series of clunkers following the breakout success he received following his debut film The Sixth Sense. Now, a reinvigorated Shyamalan is ready to turn Split and 2000’s Unbreakable into a trilogy with Glass, arriving in US theaters on January 18th, 2019.
Today, we’re taking a look at a series of international posters created for Latin American markets; they feature each of the film’s key characters: Kevin Wendell Crumb aka “The Beast” (James McAvoy), David Dunn (Bruce Willis), and Elijah Price aka “Mr. Glass” (Samuel L. Jackson). Give them a look-see below, followed by the synopsis and trailer for Glass (which will also star Anya Taylor-Joy and Sarah Paulson).
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.
