M Night Shyamalan's Glass has released an action-packed new trailer that sees the bad guys teaming up.

There's also a really cool Easter egg for long-time fans of Unbreakable as it reveals the superhero name of Bruce Willis's character David Dunn.

He's called The Overseer, which is a pretty fitting nickname since David's superpower allows him to learn every evil thing about a person simply by touching them. Of course, he's indestructible too.

The upcoming thriller reunites David with his old nemesis Elijah Price aka Mr Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) when they're gathered with the shape-shifting Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) in a support group for people who believe they have super powers - led by psychiatrist Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson).

Glass is a project that M Night Shyamalan first envisioned nearly 20 years ago when he was making Unbreakable, which he saw as the first entry in a film series.

"When I made Unbreakable, I kind of intended to do three movies. Just in my head, I was thinking to do that," he explained.

"It was just such a weird reaction to the movie... It wasn't received well at the time. I just felt hurt, so I moved on. It grew into this moment here where I wanted to make smaller movies, then I made Split and that was the opportunity to come back to it."

Glass will be in US and UK cinemas on Friday, January 18, 2019.
