Though the San Diego Comic Con can be one hell of a crazy time (and we’re kind of glad that we aren’t there this year), occasionally we do get that FOMO that strikes when a particularly cool moment happens. Be it Lupita Nyongo’s antics last year or to watch a room full of nerds lose their shit when they find out that Clone Wars is coming back, there are things about SDCC that remind us that this is a gathering of well-meaning fans as well as an occasionally soulless exercise co-opted by corporations. That said, we wish we could have heard the crowd pop once Universal showed this trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, his sequel to Unbreakable and last year’s Split. It must have been massive.
Check it out for yourself:
We are so pumped for this. That’s all we can really say.
Here’s a synopsis from Universal:
“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. 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).”
Glass hits theaters on January 18, 2019. We can’t wait.
