Philadelphia’s own M. Night Shyamalan came roaring back into mainstream acclaim with 2016’s psychological horror/thriller Split. The story of a man, played by James McAvoy, who is gifted with terrific and terrifying powers. The film was met with acclaim by both critics and fans as a return to form for director Shyamalan. During the film’s post credit scene it was revealed that the movie was set in the same universe as Shyamalan’s 2000 super-hero film Unbreakable.
Over the years Unbreakable has grown a cult following, with fans wanting a sequel since its release. With such a positive response to Split and the fan support for Unbreakable it was only inevitable that a third film would follow. Set to release January Friday the 18th, Glass is primed to conclude the trilogy in a big way. With a star-studded cast including Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson and James McAvoy, many are excited to see the conclusion to Shyamalan’s first film series.
