'Glass': 'Unbreakable' sequel poster revealed by M Night Shyamalan

M Night Shamalan has revealed the poster for his Unbreakable follow-up Glass (which also operates as a sequel to Split) via a Twitter post, and it looks pretty much amazing.

It’s a bold poster, packed with mysteries and – typically for M Night Shyamalan, a bit of a twist.

After all, only the visionary director would sign off on an image that flips its main characters upside-down.

But, so you don’t have to break your neck trying to see what these characters actually look like now, we’ve flipped it for you, because we’re nice like that.

It reveals Samuel L Jackson’s Elijah Price aka Mr Glass (aka the title character) looking as resplendent as ever – though, intriguingly, he’s not in the wheelchair he was associated with in Unbreakable.

James McAvoy is in the Beast mode we saw at the end of Split, and – mysteriously – Bruce Willis’ David Dunn appears to be in chains.

But that wasn’t the only reveal from Shyamalan – he also confirmed he’ll be at Comic-Con on 20 July, when we can expect some more surprises (a new trailer, and maybe some cast appearances?)

The official synopsis gives a bit more detail on the plot.

From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.

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.

This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who will executive produce.

Glass will be released on 18 January.
