AceShowbiz - The first official full trailer of M. Night Shyamalan's "Glass" is finally here for viewing pleasure. Debuted during the movie panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 20, the highly-anticipated video brings together James McAvoy's Kevin Wendell 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 video opens with Sarah Paulson's Dr. Ellie Staple introducing herself as a psychiatrist who specializes in dealing with people who "believe themselves to be superheroes." "The three of you have convinced yourselves you have extraordinary gifts like something out of a comic book," Dr. Staple says in a room where Crumb, Dunn and Price are sitting together but wearing different uniforms.
The footage reminds audiences of the extraordinary ability each of these characters is capable of. "I have no question there are two dozen identities that live in that body with you. What I am questioning is your belief that you are something more than human," Dr. Staple tells Crumb, who switches between his different persona.
Dunn has become a recognizable superhero thanks to his trademark raincoat, while Mr. Glass has exceptional intelligence despite his fragile bone structure. "This is not a cartoon," Price says. "This is the real world. And yet, some of us still don't die with bullets. Some of us can still bend steel. I've been waiting for the world to see that we exist."
And it becomes clear that Price's plans will involve something evil, as he's eager to unleash The Beast inside Crumb. "That sounds like the bad guys teaming up," he tells Crumb. He warns in another scene, "A lot of people are going to die."
Of course, Dunn can't stay still with Price making his threat. He breaks free from the facility and is seen having a showdown with The Beast. "Are you ready?" Price ominously asks.
The sequel to 2017's "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.
Anya Taylor-Joy returns as Casey Cooke, who was kidnapped by Dunn and his other personalities in "Split". The movie additionally brings back Charlayne Woodard as Price's mom, and Spencer Treat Clark as Dunn's son. "[They] play a big role," Shyamalan says of the two characters who were previously featured in "Unbreakable".
"Glass" is due out in the U.S. on January 18, 2019.
