Glass - Official Trailer #2 .
Three weeks after the "Horde" incident, David Dunn (Bruce Willis), a superhuman who survived the Eastrail 177 train wreck nineteen years ago, now operates as a vigilante dubbed the "Overseer" alongside his son Joseph. Together, they track down Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), the "Horde", at an abandoned factory where he holds four cheerleaders hostage. David engages Kevin in a brief battle until armed forces led by Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson) intervene and imprison them at the Raven Hill Memorial Mental Institute. Also being kept there is David's "destined" foe and global terrorist Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), who is kept under sedation and is considered completely harmless.
David and Kevin are placed into separate rooms that contain unique security measures based on their specific weaknesses. Staple explains that she believes they suffer from delusions of grandeur and do not have superpowers. Elijah's mother Mrs. Price (Charlayne Woodard), Joseph Dunn (Spencer Treat Clark), and Casey Cooke (Anya Taylor-Joy), a victim who survived Kevin/the Horde's captivity, try and fail to convince Staple superhumans are real. As part of her final evaluation, Staple brings the three men to a room where she challenges them with explanations of why their seemingly superhuman abilities are not extraordinary. Kevin and David become distraught while Elijah remains catatonic. That night, Elijah escapes his cell to conduct research on Kevin before visiting him and telling him he feigned his sedated state and plans to escape the institute but requires one of Kevin's personalities - the Beast - to help him. Staple discovers Elijah's escape plan and proceeds to do a prefrontal lobotomy to silence him.
