In an era when Marvel is demonstrating anyone how blockbuster franchises are carried out, it truly is straightforward to fail to remember that M. Night Shyamalan designed a superhero universe out of nothing.
The twist-loving filmmaker’s future Glass is due for a main San Diego Comedian Con presentation in Hall H — the significant area — on July 20. To give followers a style of what to hope, Shyamalan released the to start with poster for the Jan. 18, 2019 release on Friday.
It speaks volumes.
1st, some rationalization for those people who may possibly not be caught up: On the remaining and right sides of that graphic, respectively, we see Samuel L. Jackson’s Elijah Price and Bruce Willis’s David Dunn, the two stars of Shyamalan’s 2000 release, Unbreakable. Then, in the middle, we have James McAvoy’s Kevin Wendell Crumb, the major character in Shyamalan’s 2016 movie, Break up.
Without having having into heavy spoiler territory — each flicks are very good, and really worth viewing if you’ve got in no way caught them just before — Unbreakable is intended to be an IRL superhero origin tale and, by the time credits roll on Break up, it truly is clear that the movie exists in just the exact same universe.
This poster for Glass is noteworthy simply because it ropes all three of these characters with each other in a way that evidently defines each one’s visual motif. Glass is intended to finish the trilogy that commenced with Unbreakable.
The poster reveal was met with enthusiasm all across the world-wide-web. Even though Unbreakable is practically 20 decades outdated — and wasn’t ever visibly designed as the to start with movie in a collection — and Shyamalan’s been out of the spotlight considering the fact that Break up‘s release, there is certainly nevertheless a large amount of adore for this unexpected superhero collection.
