Samuel L. Jackson’s Mr. Glass Ready to Steal the Spotlight in New ‘Glass’ Sneak Peek
Featuring lines by Jackson’s supervillain character Elijah Price a.k.a. Mr. Glass, the teaser hints at his ambition to get recognition.
The third and possibly final teaser for “Glass” has been released before the trailer debut. Highlighting Samuel L. Jackson‘s frail-bodied evil mastermind Elijah Price a.k.a. Mr. Glass, the 15-second video features lines by the supervillain.
“I’m a comic book expert. I create the extraordinary,” he says, before hinting at his ambition to get recognition, “It is time to show the world what we are capable of.” It’s suffice to say that what he plans to achieve his goal is not something good.
The sequel to 2017’s “Split” brings together Mr. Glass and Bruce Willis‘ superpowered David Dunn from 2000’s “Unbreakable” as well as James McAvoy‘s Kevin Wendell Crumb a.k.a. The Horde, who was introduced in “Split”.
According to the film’s official plot description, “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.”
“We get to spend some time with some new people that live inside Kevin,” McAvoy recently said of what to expect in the upcoming film.
Sarah Paulson plays a new character named Dr. Ellie Staple, who is described as a psychiatrist treating people who “believe themselves to be superheroes.” Crumb, Dunn and Price are her patients as a previously released photo hinted that the three of them are getting treated in the same facility.
“She deals with people that think they’re comic-book characters,” director M. Night Shyamalan previously said of Paulson’s character. “It’s kind of the modern-day equivalent of ‘I think I’m Jesus’ or ‘I’m an emperor.’ ”
Anya Taylor-Joy also returns as Casey Cooke, who was kidnapped by Kevin and his other personalities in “Split”. The movie additionally brings back Charlayne Woodard as Elijah’s mom, and Spencer Treat Clark as David’s son. “[They] play a big role,” Shyamalan says of the two characters who were previously featured in “Unbreakable”.
“Glass” is set to arrive January 18, 2019 in the U.S. The first trailer is set to debut this Friday, July 20 during the movie’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
