I hope you’ve marked your calendars because we have just over two months before M. Night Shyamalan’s big follow-up to Unbreakable hits. Sure, we had our first taste last year when Split came out, but that was more of a side story than a direct continuation, and now we’ll have a chance to see what Bruce Willis’ David Dunn has been up to in the 15 years since the first film.
Universal just dropped a brand-new TV spot for the film, and it is a bit illuminating. I don’t know about you, but when that new trailer dropped, I almost worried they’d revealed too much. However, someone here at LRM (though I don’t remember who) had mentioned to me that those scenes between the Beast and David likely took place at the beginning of the film, and if this spot is any indication, he’s probably right, as it feels like this is just what David does — he hunts threats and neutralizes them.
This makes me a lot more excited for what’s to come, because I now have no idea what to expect for the glorious third act of this film, though it does look like Shyamalan will continue to keep the number of sets in this one minimal, so as to keep the budget low. Given the types of films these are, I’m all for that approach, as it helps differentiate it from bigger, more traditional superhero fare.
Below is the official synopsis for 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.”
Glass hits theaters on January 18, 2019.
