Glass trailer teases roll out the hero and villains of Split sequel
M. Night Shyamalan is bringing Glass, his not-so-secret-anymore sequel to Unbreakable and Split, to San Diego Comic-Con this week — and that means we’re getting a new trailer! Before its debut on Friday, Universal Pictures released three teasers highlighting what’s to come.
The first one, which dropped Tuesday, highlights The Beast within James McAvoy. The X-Men star plays Kevin Wendell Crumb. Well, sometimes he’s Kevin. Other times he’s Patricia, Mary Reynolds, or any one of the other multiple personalities that reside within this body. The one personality we should all be worried about is The Beast, a superhuman form with incredible strength.
Wednesday brought the debut of a clip centered on Bruce Willis’ “unbreakable” man David Dunn, and Thursday gave us one for David’s fragile archnemesis Elijah “Mr. Glass” Price, played by Samuel L. Jackson.
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.”
Sarah Paulson also plays a psychiatrist treating David, Elija, and Kevin, while Anya-Taylor Joy reprises her role of Casey Cooke from Split.
Universal will debut the first trailer for Glass this Friday during the film’s Comic-Con panel, which kicks off in Hall H at 3:45 p.m. PT.
This post has been updated with the two additional trailer teases.
