Unbreakable played with superhero iconography, but even by early 2000s standards, it was a lot more low-key than most comic book movies. And while no one expected Split to be a stealth sequel, it was also more interested in the psychology of the characters than the big, intense moments.
So it shouldn't be surprising that the trailer for Glass isn't about the build-up to a big, bare-knuckle showdown between David (Bruce Willis) and Kevin (James McAvoy). Yes, there are a few flashes of fights, but this is more about Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) flexing his evil genius. But thankfully this isn't a trailer that gives everything away, giving us just enough cool moments and memorable lines to pique our interest.
Plus, Sarah Paulson (Ocean's 8) and Anya Taylor-Joy (Thoroughbreds) are in this, so that automatically makes it worth seeing, if for some reason you weren't in yet.
Glass opens January 18, 2019.
