The sequel to "Unbreakable" and "Split" by Shyamalan opens in theaters nationwide in January.
M. Night Shyamalan was one of the great winners of Comic Con during the summer thanks to that tilt trailer "Glass" that expertly brought together the worlds of "Unbreakable" and "Split". Universal has finally debuted the official trailer of the film, and shows Shyamalan's long-awaited sequel has more than one trump card.
"Glass" is set after the events of "Split", played by James McAvoy as a man suffering from a multiple personality disorder. "Split" ended with the revelation that David Dunn of Bruce Willis was aware that McAvoy's Beast (his most transforming and violent personality) had been unleashed. "Glass" finds Dunn while tracking down the Beast, while Mr. Glass of Samuel L. Jackson pulls the strings backstage to orchestrate the showdown between good and evil.
Shyamalan released "Unbreakable" in 2000 and was always planning to do a sequel involving the characters played by Willis and Jackson. When the film turned out to be a disappointment at the box office, the director paused his plans and continued to direct "Signs".
Universal will open "Glass" nationwide on January 19th. Watch the official trailer below.
