The big twist in M. Night Shyamalan’s 2016 horror hit Split isn’t that Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) and Casey Cooke (Anya Taylor-Joy) are kindred spirits; rather, it’s that the film is actually a sequel to 2000’s Unbreakable, a literal last-minute revelation made by the sudden appearance of David Dunn (played by Bruce Willis). Suddenly, the disparate works of Shyamalan became something of a multi-verse.
Glass arrives in US Theaters this January. After releasing a trio of wickedly short teasers at San Diego Comic-Con this week, Universal has finally unleashed the beast: A full-length trailer! The trailer arrived with a brand-new poster for Glass, one illustrated by legendary comic book artist Alex Ross. Give them both a look-see below.
Security guard David Dunn uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has 23 personalities.
For kicks, or if it’s been a minute, check out the trailers and synopses for 2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’s Split below. Enjoy!
A security guard, having been the sole survivor of a high-fatality train crash, finds himself at the centre of a mysterious theory that explains his consistent physical good fortune. When news of his survival is made public, a man whose own body is excessively weak tracks him down in an attempt to explain his unique unbreakable nature.
Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all of the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him — as well as everyone around him — as the walls between his compartments shatter.
