A new international trailer has arrived for M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming thriller “Glass,” a sequel to the past Stern Show guest’s gritty superhero origin story “Unbreakable” and recent thriller “Split.”
The clip (above) takes place primarily within the walls of a mental institution where Samuel L. Jackson is being monitored along with co-stars Bruce Willis and James McAvoy. “Belief in one’s self is contagious,” Jackson’s character Mr. Glass explains over foreboding imagery of padded rooms and sterile corridors. “We are part of something larger. We are fighting for the broken.”
The titular evil genius believes he is a supervillain in the making and hopes to recruit the likes of the super-strong David Dunn (Willis) and psychotic Kevin Wendell Crumb, but their skeptical psychiatrist played by Sarah Paulson sees it differently.
“I specialize in those individuals who believe they are supernatural beings,” she tells them over a montage of violence, confusion, and McAvoy slithering across the walls and ceiling like an evil, shirtless Spider-Man.
“Glass,” also starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Spencer Treat Clark, and Charlayne Woodard, hits theaters Jan. 18. Watch the latest trailer (above).
