Once Glass hits theaters early next year, M. Night Shyamalan will have created a trilogy of very different films. The first one, Unbreakable, is a slow, meditative origin story that gives the idea of superheroes a more grounded feel. Split is a more traditional psychological thriller, taking place mostly within the confines of an unknown building. Glass…well, what exactly can we expect from Glass?
Given how different Split was from Unbreakable, it doesn’t seem outside the realm of possibility that the film could be drastically different. Then again, Shyamalan could opt to have it better resemble Split, since that might be a better example of the types of movies we can expect from him these days. But which is it? Speaking with Collider, actress Anya Taylor-Joy gave some insight as to what to expect from the upcoming flick and how it compares to its predecessor:
“With Split, there was a giant sense of adventure and discovery. We were making something different, and it was weird and everything was so intense. There was a real sense of adventure with Split, whilst with Glass, it felt so epic. Every single day, everyone was so happy to be there because we were aware that we were making cinematic history. That’s a big deal. And then, you see Sam [Jackson] in his costume. I’m a true fangirl, so I was just like, ‘Oh, my god, that’s Elijah Price! That’s crazy! And I’m in a scene with him. That’s nuts!’ I think we were all just so excited to be a part of it, and all very grateful to be a part of something so monumental.”
Her actual description of the film is slight, but I think it is telling. If you consider Unbreakable the slow burn and Split the fast-paced follow-up, it only makes sense that Glass would be the “epic” conclusion to those two narratives. As such, I wouldn’t expect the film to resemble either of its predecessors, which could be a good thing.
