After M. Night Shyamalan's split was set in the same universe as the director's earlier film Unbreakable people were really excited about the film, which would merge both of these films more completely. We've known for months that the next movie would be Glass and before that the director at CinemaCon had a clip with Sarah Paulson's character working with patients who "believe" they have superpowers. Not all of us were fortunate enough to be there to see this material, but this morning M. Night Shyamalan shared the first official poster for the movie featuring the heroes and villains of earlier films and people in between, returns.
Glass is expected to bring back Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson as David Dunn and Mr. Glass from Unbreakable as well as James McAvoy's The Beast and Anya Taylor. Joys Casey Cooke from Split . The poster focuses on the three male figures, more specifically, on a shiny floor, possibly in a hospital ward. We know from the previous film that Sarah Paulson will also be involved in the new movie and play a psychiatrist who sees patients she thinks are megalomaniacs, so a hospital would make sense.
Glass finished packaging production late last year. We've seen Anya Taylor-Joy on set and we'll probably learn more about Casey's life after witnessing the events of Split when she survived a long encounter with The Beast. I would also like to know more about the consequences of her relationship with her uncle, which we learned about him in Split . From what was shown in the CinemaCon clip, there were also shots of the three male characters to similar antics we've seen of them in previous films, which is not really a big surprise, but somehow sets the stage where the new movie can go without betraying too much about the storyline. The movie will not be released until January 18, 2019, but with this first-look poster hopefully that means something bigger – hopefully a trailer! – will be on the way. All in all, it looks like the movie will be more a direct continuation of Unbreakable than Split and we can not wait to see what that means.
Although we know a bit more about how the main characters will interact in the new movie, many of M. Night Shyamalan's Glass are shrouded in mystery, which is probably just the way Ending Director likes it. For everything we know about Glass keep an eye on our complete guide. And to see that in 2018 everything is still in the cinemas, take a look at our film program.
