'Glass': New trailer reveals a showdown between good and evil, Dunn and Crumb
The new trailer kind of reveals it will be a face-off between good and evil, but no one knows who will win
Director M. Night Shyamalan's last installment in his bizarre super-hero trilogy, 'Glass', has been creating quite the buzz for all the right reasons. The movie brings in three of Shyamalan's strongest characters, David Dunn from the 2000 movie 'Unbreakable', Kevin Wendell Crumb from the 2016 movie 'Split', and finally the central character of the movie, Elijah "Mr. Glass" Pierce.
With Bruce Willis (Dunn), James McAvoy (Crumb), and Samuel L. Jackson (Glass) returning to resume their roles as the three bizarre super beings, the latest trailer of 'Glass' reveals this time it will be a showdown between an angel and a devil.
The trailer opens with Sarah Paulson's character, a psychologist, discriminating between David Dunn, a man who is unbreakable, and Kevin Wendell Crumb, a man popularly known as The Horde due to the 24 different personalities that he embodies.
She gravely casts the two aside as Dunn being a man who wants to protect others and Kevin who believes that there is a beast inside him. The trailer immediately flashes to a scene where Kevin's Beast-form tries to break Dunn but when unable to do so, the two take a major fall and are immediately arrested.
The rest of the trailer begins to revolve around Glass who comes to visit the man who is half man and half creature, and immediately confesses to Kevin that he has been waiting for The Horde to arrive. The trailer spins around to Kevin who is completely demented as he attacks everything that comes his way in the form of the Beast, and in his encounter with Glass, the trailer reveals one of the biggest plot points of the movie.
It seems that 'Glass' will be a face-off between Dunn and Kevin, the latter being instigated by Glass to embrace his powers - exactly the same way he had persuaded Dunn to embrace his superhuman capability to sustain any kind of injury, in 'Unbreakable'.
Glass is a man who stands on the completely opposite side of the spectrum when compared to Dunn, as he was born with Type I osteogenesis imperfecta, a rare disease that renders its sufferers' bones extremely fragile and prone to fracture. However, that has never kept Glass from considering himself to be above all beings and when he met Dunn in 'Unbreakable' he attempted to forge an alliance with him, to compensate for his own weakness.
It seems that he is about to do the same, but with Kevin, and this time he might even succeed since Kevin himself refuses to hide his powers from the world. As Paulson's character rightly points out, both Glass and Kevin have very superior perceptions of themselves, and in 'Glass' we can expect the two will team up against Dunn.
Shyamalan has been following the traditional comic three-part system in superhero stories but his trilogy stands out on the grounds that, except Dunn, the characters are very much human. Kevin suffers from multiple identity disorder and he finally manages to surpass the human limit of strength when he both psychologically and physically turns into a beast.
Glass might be a guy tied to a wheelchair, but his shrewd manipulation never fails in getting him what he wants. As for Dunn, he continues to exist in a contradictory state as he refuses to harm people on behalf of Glass, who was the first to reveal to him he might be more than human.
Also starring Anya Taylor-Joy whose character in 'Split' was the sole survivor of the Beast's wrath, 'Glass' releases January 18, and we hope it will bring Shyamalan's creative ingenuity back under the limelight. Watch the latest trailer below.
