James McAvoy’s Beast Comes Alive in Glass Motion Poster

Universal has just released a new motion poster for M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass which teases James McAvoy’s Beast, the invincible alter ego of McAvoy’s Kevin Wendell Crumb. This cool new poster hints at how the sinister Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), also known as Mr. Glass, has found the perfect foil for the indestructible David Dunn (Bruce Willis). The first trailer gave us a glimpse at Shyamalan’s surprising final installment in his trilogy (which began with his 2000 film Unbreakable, which introduced us to Price/Mr. Glass and Dunn’s perfectly counter-balanced villain and hero, and 2016’s Split, which introduced us to Crumb and his multiple personalities.)

In Glass, these three are the patients by Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson), in which they’re believed to be suffering from flights of fancy that they have superpowers in the first place. It turns out, as Dr. Staple explains, lots of people seem to be coming out of the woodwork claiming they have superpowers, which is certainly exciting news to Mr. Glass, who searched for years for proof of a superhero (so that he could have a proper foil), which he found in David Dunn, and now again in Crumb, whose Beast would be the perfect compliment to Mr. Glass’s brilliant-but-fragile villainous routine.

Here’s the synopsis for Glass:

M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass. 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. Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable‘s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series).

Glass breaks into theaters on January 18, 2019.
