M. Night Shyamalan returns to the big screen with the anticipated next chapter to Unbreakable and Split with Glass. The trilogy brings together the two highly rated movies with a spin giving Samuel L. Jackson’s character more a lead. In true M. Night fashion, the twists and turns keep coming and there is always just a little bit of information left out that brings the puzzle together. Bruce Willis returns as Detective Dunn which is a great way to tie the movies together.
I loved the movie, it was interesting to watch as the 2 of the main characters are not stable, the story never focused on that. It took the story on more a personal aspect for Glass and Crumb. James McAvoy is stunning as usual and does a great job with his performance. As a long standing Shyamalan fan, this movie did not disappoint and there is so much to take in that I may have to watch it again. There was a few scenes that took me by surprise, just like it should have. I admit, not all of Shyamalan movies have been stellar but this is a good one and an ending to quite an epic story. You should see it!
GLASS – In Theaters Now
The Official Glass Trailer:
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass.
From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.
Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series).
This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters is produced by Shyamalan and Blumhouse Production’s Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider and Kevin Frakes, who executive produce. Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum also serve as executive producers.
A Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse production, Glass will be released by Universal Pictures in North America on January 18, 2019, and by Buena Vista International abroad. www.glassmovie.com
