Now Playing: The Biggest Movies To Watch In 2018

M. Night Shyamalan has unveiled the first poster for his newest film, Glass. After directing The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and The Village all around the turn of the century, Shyamalan quickly became an acclaimed director before disappearing for a while. He popped back onto the scene with his breakout horror hit Split starring James McAvoy which came out in 2016.

Fans of Unbreakable have been waiting almost two decades for a sequel, and now that Shyamalan's back in the game with a new hit under his belt, he's looking to combine the worlds of the two movies in his upcoming film, Glass.

No Caption Provided

Shyamalan used an announcement that there will be a panel for Glass at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con as an opportunity to show off the first poster. The image which you see above features James McAvoy as Crumb from Split alongside Bruce Willis as Dunn and Samuel L. Jackson as Dr. Glass from Unbreakable. Along with showing the ominous tagline, "you cannot contain who you are," the image makes it look like the three of them are each incapacitated in some way, while their reflections reveal their true selves. Apparently, Crumb's true self works out.

The film will pick up where Split left off, but it will feature Dr. Glass and Dunn in pursuit of Crumb for the iteration of his personality that has superhuman powers called the Beast. So the film will essentially be a sequel to both Split and Unbreakable, combining the two to create one big Shyamalan universe. Glass will be released January 18, 2019.

It's not Dr. Glass, it's Mr. Glass. Wonder if the person who wrote this has even seen Unbreakable? Glass was never a doctor...

Hopefully it'll be as well acted as Split and The Visit.
I enjoyed The Visit and I really liked Split.
Yes, those movies weren't flawless, but I really enjoyed the acting and the atmosphere.
Just don't try to be a summer blockbuster explosive type of movie.
The reason why Split worked for me it's because it's a different and unique take on telling an origin story.
And the Visit was also a good found footage movie, even though I'm not a big fan of the genre.
I hope this is Shyamalan's true come back as a great director.
I want this movie to knock it out of the park critically and commercially.

@hansond_jaysond_lee: interesting... I've seen "The Visit" great movie IMO but, i never seen split. I remember seeing a trailer and advertising but never seen it. Now that i know its kinda part of the "unbreakable" universe, i might give it a try.

YES. Loved the previous films.

Clearly Dunn had some unintended consequences befall one of his interventions.

@Pyrosa: But if Glass hadn't done what he did, Crumb wouldn't exist.

Is it meant for us not to see their heads?

@rtehrani: You see them below in the reflection. Pretty sure this is intentional.
