The official synopsis for 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.
Looks astonishingly good. Unbreakable had the element of surprise on its side, no one even knew it had anything to do with superheroes when it first came out. Joy of discovery.
But this one looks like it’s trying to carry out the Unbreakable formula (superhero-origin/Hitchcockian thriller) in a creepier, more effective way. Go for it K Night, you have already convinced me that Split was the film you made directly after Unbreakable.
