M. Night Shyamalan is not one for traditional storytelling. So when he inserted that twist in Split, it showed that the world of Unbreakable was much bigger than we originally thought. That’s because it was revealed that Split took place in the same universe as Unbreakable, and the story would continue on with Glass.
Now Universal has released the newest trailer for Glass starring Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Bruce Willis in a film that could change the superhero genre as we know it. Check it out below.
M. Night Shyamalan is having one hell of a career resurgence. From The Visit all the way to this year’s Split, audiences have grown to love the filmmaker’s recent directorial efforts.
Now he has announced Glass, as his newest project. But there is something special about this new title. It will be a sequel to both Split and Unbreakable. More on the story below. And minor spoilers will follow.

Screenwriter: M. Night Shyamalan

Rated PG-13 | 117 Minutes

In Split, the latest film by M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs), James McAvoy (X-Men: Apocalypse) stars as Kevin, a troubled young man who kidnaps three teenage girls: Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Marcia (Jessica Sula), and Claire (The Edge of Seventeen‘s Haley Lu Richardson).
As Casey and her friends try to escape the underground lair in which they are trapped, they discover that Kevin has dissociative identity disorder, a psychological condition characterized by the presence of two or more distinct personality states. According to his psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley, Carrie), Kevin embodies 23 separate personalities of all ages and genders, manifesting unique physical attributes for each.
So far the collaboration between Blumhouse and M. Night Shyamalan has been a successful one. The Visit helped reestablish the filmmaker’s career, and we can look forward to many more horror flicks from the two.
Now we are getting a new trailer for Split, starring James McAvoy as Kevin, a man who suffers from dissociative identity disorder and has 23 split personalities (from an angry deranged man to a small child to a woman) sharing one body. Check out the full trailer below.
