M. Night Shyamalan’s Heroes and Villains Are Locked Up in First Official ‘Glass’ Photos
The M. Night Shyamalan-iverse is expanding. The upcoming Unbreakable and Split crossover/sequel finds the super-powered heroes and villains of both films locked up in a mental institution, being treated as a bunch of crazies who think they’re superheroes.
A few weeks ago, the first poster for Glass teased the crossover with a look at Samuel L. Jackson‘s Mr. Glass, Bruce Willis‘ David Dunn and James McAvoy‘s The Beast. Today, Entertainment Weekly debuted the first official stills along with some new details for what to expect. We get a better look at Jackson in Elijah Price’s shiny-as-heck purple suit. He’s even got a gold lapel with his initials on it!
Here’s all three together, and McAvoy’s Kevin looks like he’s about to lose it and swap into The Beast. Anya Taylor Joy‘s Casey, who’s kidnapped by Kevin’s Dennis personality.
There’s also a photo of Sarah Paulson’s psychiatrist studying the men at the mental hospital. “She deals with people that think they’re comic-book characters,” Shyamalan told the magazine of Paulson’s role. McAvoy also revealed that the new movie will introduce us to even more of Kevin’s personalities. In Split, we only see about eight of his 23 personalities, and while Glass will bring many of those back,McAvoy said we’ll get to “spend some time with some new people that live inside Kevin.”
Charlayne Woodard, who played Elijah Price’s mother in Unbreakable, will also be back, along with Spencer Treat Clark, who played Willis’ son Joseph Dunn in the 2000 movie. Glass hits theaters January 18, 2018.
