First Photos For M. Night Shyamalan's GLASS Feature Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson and James McAvoy in Group Therapy
Thanks to EW, we have a collection of photos to show you from M. Night Shyamalan's highly anticipated sequel to Unbreakable and Split, Glass. This is easily one of my most anticipated films of 2019. I've been waiting for this movie since I first saw Unbreakable!
The photos you'll see here feature the return on Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Glass, and James McAvoy as Kevin Crumb. There are also shots of Anya Taylor Joy as Casey and Sarah Paulson as a new character named Doctor Ellie Staple that will play a vital role in the story. When talking about her role in the film, the director said:
"She deals with people that think they’re comic-book characters. It’s kind of the modern-day equivalent of 'I think I’m Jesus' or 'I’m an emperor.'"
It's also revealed that we will get to spend some time with some new people that live inside of Kevin. It's going to be really interesting to see how the story unfolds for these characters that we've come to know over the course of two movies.
I already saw some footage of the film at CinemaCon a few months ago and it was pretty freakin' exciting! We should be getting a trailer next week during Comic-Con so stay tuned for that! The movie is going in a direction that I wasn't expecting. When talking about the film, the director previously said:
"In Split, I created the origin story for an anarchist that could be good or could be bad. The worlds of Unbreakable and Split finally collide in Glass. What if these real-life superheroes and supervillains are somehow locked up together? What could go wrong?"
The photo above actually shows the three main character locked up together in a psychiatric ward and participating in group therapy because they think they have superpowers. That's just a little taste of what Shyamalan has in store. He went on to say:
“Eighteen years ago I had this idea: What if comic books were based on reality? I tried to tell the story of superheros in the real world with David Dunn. Then two years ago, I got another crazy notion: What if the afflictions and disorders that everyone in society thinks make a person bad were actually gifts? And I created the origin story for an anarchist who could be good or bad.”
Glass will premiere on January 18th, 2019. We'll post the trailer for you as soon as it goes live!
