Writer-director M. Night Shyamalan, famous for bringing nerve-wrecking drama on the silver screen, has unveiled the first teaser poster of his upcoming physiological thriller 'Glass', that he is confident to leave everyone in bewilderment. With films like 'The Sixth Sense' and 'The Village', the 47-year-old director has hardly failed to amaze his fans.
The released Glass movie poster presents mirrored images of the characters and represents the characters in a color scheme. Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price aka Mr. Glass is seen sitting on a wheelchair and his double representing his accumulated rage.
James McAvoy's Kevin Wendell Crumb aka The Beast, who has the dissociative identity disorder, is seen in his muscular 24th personality. And his faovorite actor, Bruce Willis' Davis Dunn, who can see the crimes and sins of others by just touching them, is seen incarcerated while his mirrored version is shown standing tall.
The earlier films in the series, Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016), were praised by the critics and the fans for aesthetics, brilliant performances by Willis, Jackson, and McAvoy, and particularly for the score by James Newton Howard. Glass will serve as the third and final installment in Shyamalan's Unbreakable series.
Last year, Night Shyamalan confirmed the news on Twitter that both Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson will reprise their characters for the final installment. The film will pick up right where James McAvoy's Split left off. Dunn will be seen chasing after The Beast and Mr. Glass will hold secrets that will be critical to both men.

Although some of Shyamalan's earlier films were highly criticized for ruining the storylines, his 2016 release Split earned him several accolades. While McAvoy was highly praised for his performance as a disturbed person with 23 prominent personalities, the director got the credit for making an engaging film with an unsettling storyline.
Apart from the main cast, the film will also bring back Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard to portray their original characters. Glass is scheduled to release on January 18, 2019.
