Universal premiered the first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass yesterday at San Diego Comic Con. The films is said to be the last in Shyamalan’s superhero trilogy, which started with Unbreakable in 2000. While the film was not as acclaimed at The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable gained a cult following thanks to its grounded portrayal of superheroes and villains.

When 2016’s Split was revealed to be a part of the Unbreakable universe in a post-credits scene, fans were soon clamoring for a feature to fully tie all the storylines together. The Glass trailer finds the three leads in a mental health institution of some sort, where they are being treated by Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson, never not killing it) for superhero/villain based delusions. Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) and David Dunn (Bruce Willis) are all being held in the same facility, while we catch glimpses of what they’ve been up to in the intervening years.

David Dunn has remained on the down low, working in “security” as he calls it, as an under the radar hero. Meanwhile, Crumb seems to be continuing his kidnapping spree and developing his super powered alter ego The Beast. And as for Mr. Glass, he appears to be teaming up with Crumb to create their own rogues gallery. We also catch glimpses of Dunn’s grown son, Price’s mother, and Casey Cooke, the girl who survived Crumb’s abduction.

Given that the first two films focused on Dunn and Crumb, it appears that the final chapter in the trilogy will focus on Samuel L. Jackson’s Mr. Glass (also, it’s called Glass, so ya know, context clues). Glass is set to be released in January 2019, and will surely feature the twistiest of endings, as per all Shyamalan films.

What do you think of the trailer? Are you excited about Glass or are you over Shyamalan?
