It was a long time coming, and now the Unbreakable sequel fans have been waiting for will be in theaters early next year.
To milk the anticipation a little longer, the director known for scripting surprising twists, M. Night Shyamalan, will give a presentation on his next film, Glass, at the San Diego Comic Con on July 20.
But before fans get a taste of what to expect, The Sixth Sense director tweeted an advance poster for Glass.
But if you need your #GlassMovie fix before July 20th, here’s the world premiere of our teaser poster. https://t.co/HsMa0bzR7N— M. Night Shyamalan (@M. Night Shyamalan) 1530277651.0
In the teaser poster, we see Samuel L. Jackson's Elijah Price and Bruce Willis's David Dunn, from 2000's Unbreakable. Joining them in the middle is James McAvoy's Kevin Wendell Crumb as his beastly alter ego from 2016's Split, which revealed that the two world's co-existed with Dunn's mind-blowing cameo at the end of the movie.
Here's a closer look at the poster's reflected image depicting the characters in their supernatural form.

Although the standalone superhero origin-story of Unbreakable was conceived as a speculative screenplay to mimic a comic book's three-part story structure, Glass will be a sequel uniting all the characters from Split in a sequel that will be nearly 20 years in the making.
Seeing all three of them together is creating buzz on the Internet, and with the advance poster now out there for all to see, fans are getting excited.
