New Trailer For 'Glass' Has Dropped And James McAvoy Is A Beast

The second trailer for twist-master M. Night Shyamalan's Glass just dropped and let's just say it looks even bigger (and creepier) than ever.

For those of you not in the know, the forthcoming film is the third entry in Shyamalan's Unbreakable trilogy, following on from 2000's Unbreakable and 2016's Split.

And as you can see in the trailer, the story brings together all of your favourite characters from the previous films, including Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price and James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb (and the many batshit identities who reside within).

American Horror Story alum Sarah Paulson is also set to star as Dr. Ellie Staple - a psychiatrist who is seen discussing the so-called superhero delusions experienced by the three characters as they sit together in an institute.

The latest trailer exposes more of the plotline, or at least what Shyamalan wants us to think is the plotline before he most likely throws an almighty twist at the end, like he has done in his previous films.

Of course, that's for him to know and us to speculate the shit out of until the anticipated movie hits UK theaters on 18 January 2019.

Until then, it looks like David is the protagonist with a huge task on his hands, while Elijah utilises the power of The Beast in order to help unleash his master plan to show the world that superheroes and supervillains actually do exist.

It'll be interesting to see how Shyamalan balances out the stories of the three key characters, while also giving screen time to Unbreakable's Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who will reprise their roles as Dunn's son and Price's mother.

We'll also get to see what happens to Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast in Split.

But more importantly, it will be interesting to see what curveball we're thrown at the end of the movie. You never know, maybe the plot twist is that there isn't one. But if we're looking at Shyamalan's oeuvre - The Sixth Sense, Signs, The Village, to name but a few - then it's likely the ending will throw us into brand new territory.

What with Glass marking the end of the trilogy, here's hoping it manages to shock and satisfy, all at the same time.
