The city of Philadelphia is currently playing host to M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, a sequel 17 years in the making, and today brings forth an all-new set photo to prove it.
First unveiled via Facebook (with a tip of the hat to ComicBook.com), this compilation offers up another sneak peek at Bruce Willis as the returning David Dunn. You know him, of course; he was the steely protagonist of Unbreakable, a man so strong and resilient he can bench press 350 pounds and walk away from a train crash without so much as a scratch. And in 2019, he’ll be welcomed back to the fray alongside Samuel L. Jackson as the dubious Elijah Price.
Completing the crossover are Anya Taylor-Joy and a topless James McAvoy, who were first introduced earlier this year via Split. And below, you’ll see all four characters moseying around the Philadelphia set:
They’re the dysfunctional family of Shyamalan’s sequel, with James McAvoy reprising the multi-faceted role of Kevin…and Dennis, and Patricia, and Hedwig, and–well, you get the idea. Either way, McAvoy’s deranged lead is said to be a conduit of “The Beast,” given his dominant personalities all make mention of some all-seeing paranormal force.
Meanwhile, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) is back, back, back as Casey Cooke, a young girl with a traumatic past and a history of self-harm. She managed to wriggle free from Dennis and Co. during Split, which is just as well given they intended to sacrifice her in the name of the Beast. But Taylor-Joy lives to see another day, and it would appear she’s even paid a visit to Elijah Price, considering the up-and-coming star is seen clutching on to a stack of comics.
Exactly how these scenes filter into the story of Glass is really anyone’s guess at this point, but with a January 18th, 2019 release date locked in, we can begin to get excited about the third and final chapter in M. Night Shyamalan’s mind-bending trilogy.
