AceShowbiz - Here's another look at M. Night Shyamalan's "Glass" before the first full trailer is released. Universal Pictures has shared a 15-second teaser of the movie which warns everyone about the impending return of The Beast.
The video features shots of James McAvoy's Kevin Wendell Crumb who introduces himself as Patricia, Mary Reynolds and any other names that he goes by. "Beast is coming any minute now for you, guys," he says toward the end of the video.
The sequel to 2017's "Split" brings together Crumb a.k.a. The Horde as well as Samuel L. Jackson's frail-bodied evil mastermind Elijah Price / Mr. Glass and Bruce Willis' superpowered David Dunn from 2000's "Unbreakable".
The film's official plot description reads, "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."
"We get to spend some time with some new people that live inside Kevin," McAvoy recently said of what to expect in the upcoming film.
Sarah Paulson plays a new character named Dr. Ellie Staple, who is described as a psychiatrist treating people who "believe themselves to be superheroes." Crumb, Dunn and Price are her patients as a recently released photo hinted that the three of them are getting treated in the same facility.
"She deals with people that think they're comic-book characters," Shyamalan previously said of Paulson's character. "It's kind of the modern-day equivalent of 'I think I'm Jesus' or 'I'm an emperor.' "
Anya Taylor-Joy also returns as Casey Cooke, who was kidnapped by Kevin and his other personalities in "Split". The movie additionally brings back Charlayne Woodard as Elijah's mom, and Spencer Treat Clark as David's son. "[They] play a big role," Shyamalan says of the two characters who were previously featured in "Unbreakable".
"Glass" is set to arrive January 18, 2019 in the U.S. The first trailer is set to debut this Friday, July 20.
