The final motion poster has arrived for M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass in preparation for the new trailer that will be unleashed for the film tomorrow. The poster puts the focus on Samuel L. Jackson’s character Mr. Glass. This character is the mastermind behind everything going on between the heroes and villains in this universe. The posters previously released featured James McAvoy as The Beast and Bruce Willis as David Dunn. I can’t wait to see that trailer tomorrow!
The film also stars Anya Taylor Joy as Casey, Sarah Paulson as Doctor Ellie Staple who plays a vital role in the story as she is treating the main characters in a mental institute.
Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
During a previous interview, the director opened up a little bit about the film's story and explains that there's a philosophical conflict at the heart of the film that will set it apart from Unbreakable and Glass.
"I think there’s definitely a philosophical conflict at the center of the movie which is, you know, are they are they deluded to think these things? Or is that belief in oneself ultimately something that truly makes them something more?
"That kind of belief is a tenuous thing for people. Even if we can do extraordinary things, is it something that we’re interpreting when we do that or are some people really special or not? The movie’s really about doubt versus belief and so every scene has that weight to it and that struggle is there."
He went on to say that the film is a character-driven story that was inspired by the classic film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
"It’s a contained, character-driven thriller that happens to be about this subject. There’s very little CGI and it’s not about the spectacle. It’s really about the characters. One of my favorite films is One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and there’s a lot of that in this in this movie."
Glass will be released on January 18th, 2019.
