After various teasers, fans have finally been served with a new trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass. The trailer shows the heroes (or villains?) in action.
2017’s Split was one of the best thrillers of the year, continuing from where 2000’s Unbreakable left us. While Unbreakable could easily qualify for the superhero genre, Split and the upcoming Glass are more inclined towards the horror genre.
“For me, they’re almost a different genre, what we’re doing with Split, Unbreakable, and Glass,” Shyamalan shared with ComingSoon. “These are primarily thrillers and they’re very much more contained. They’re not CGI driven, they’re very simple and clean. The musculature that [comic book] movies have are not what we’re trying to do. The idea of what you don’t see is really what we’re insinuating, it’s the power of that.”
The recent teasers confirmed that all characters have an alias of their own. While David Dunn, played by Bruce Willis goes by name of “The Overseer”, as his abilities help him see all criminal activities anyone has been involved with just by a touch, Samuel L. Jackson’s character calls himself “Mr Glass”.
Another teaser also referred to him as “The Mastermind.” McAvoy’s villainous alter ego was called “The Beast.”
Glass will hit the theaters on January 18 next year.
