Dennis (vo):
We keep bringing him sacred food, and nothing's happening. I... The Beast, he's shown himself twice to the masses of the broken, and-and they're not believing. There's no revolution. I...

Patricia (vo):
Dennis, do not be scared. You have to trust me, as you always have.

[Cut to an abandoned brick factory, as Patricia walks into view]

Look at you all. My name is Patricia.

[We see the "sacred food", four cheerleaders chained to metal bars]

Now, who would like a PB and J sandwich? (points at one of them) You do.

[Cut to black. The track "Physicks" starts playing as the words "Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Pictures presents" and "A M. Night Shyamalan Film" appear, followed by the film's title: GLASS]

[At night, a man is walking by a store front holding groceries in a paper bag. Suddenly, he is knocked down by a young man. Another young man approaches, holding a camera]

(while filming) Ooh! Boom! Ooh! Ah, look at. Oh! I am the master boy.

(on camera) Superman punch, b*tch! Yeah!

[The two boys laugh and applaud their "skills"]


Go, go, go, go, go, go!

Get out! (to the fallen man) You all right, brother?

[The boys run away as someone chases them towards the subway. Ronald and T high-five each other. We then cut to their house. T is watching back the video he's made, while Ronald is playing a video game on the TV]

Ooh, you see his bag fall? It's what they call dramatic effect. This is gonna get so many views.

[They then hear something, a door slamming shut in the kitchen]

That a raccoon again? Did you leave the door open, T?

I closed it.

[We hear the sound of running water, someone is washing his hands]

Hello? (turns off the telly)

[The lights in the kitchen get turned off as Ronald gets up from the sofa]

Yo, who's there? (being tough) We're gonna Salt Bae your ass.

[As Ronald goes to the kitchen, more lights go out. He looks back at T, still behind his laptop]

Superman-punch him, Ronald.

[Ronald goes to the kitchen. We hear a brief scuffle taking place, before he gets slammed into the kitchen wall, groaning. The visitor, a man in a green rain poncho, steps into frame]

Oh, sh*t. It's you.

[The man steps towards T, who rolls up his sleeves, whimpering. He turns off the remaining lights. We then cut to the man, David Dunn, walking to the locked door of his home security shop. It's dark outside as he unlocks the door and enters the shop. His son, Joseph, now a grown man in his twenties, is working behind a computer]

They bumped into me at the subway. Can't just let 'em go, Joseph.

(turning to his dad) Weren't you on a specified walk?

You can't run this like the store. It's potluck.

All things come second when we're on a specified walk. (under his breath) The store works 'cause we have rules. (as David comes closer) Hey, it was a good follow, though. "We gonna Salt Bae your ass." What a douche.

[He opens a drawer and grabs a notebook. We see some hilariously bad quotes, presumably thrown at David throughout the years, written on it]

It's definitely going into the book. (as he writes it down) "Salt Bae your ass."

What is that, anyway?

[He sits down, next to his son]

It's an Internet guy. He's a butcher who salts his meat in an elaborate way. (points with pencil) You got dinged.

[Joseph opens some news sites on the computer. Several articles of David's antics fill the screen. We see some like counters go up]
