One of our most anticipated films for 2019 is M. Night Shyamalan‘s Glass, the third of film in a superhero series that began with Unbreakable in 2000. Now it looks like we’re not alone. In fact we’re far from it as Variety is reporting that Glass is estimated to make a whopping 70 to 75 million dollars domestically.
Director M Night Shyamalan shocked Hollywood and moviegoers with The Sixth Sense. Since that movie people have expected way too much from the director. Sometimes to the point where no matter how good the film would be critics would express disappointment. With so many ups and downs in his career Shyamalan is back and better than ever.
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.
