From Universal’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 comes the first look at 2019’s first blockbuster: M. Night Shaymalan’s sequel to Unbreakable and Split…GLASS! More from Coming Soon.
Returning for Glass are cast members Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, aka Mr. Glass, and James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb, aka The Horde. They’re joined by Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series) as a psychiatrist who specializes in “individuals who believe they are superheroes” and who is treating the trio at a mental hospital.
Also starring in the film is Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast, who reprises her role from Split. Plus Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother.
This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be 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, who will executive produce.
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.
Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week. 2018 rolls into the new blockbuster battleground month of March with two new films to challenge Black Panther.

I am not a fan of director Eli Roth. I think he’s a torture porn peddler. Was that clear enough? It’s not like Death Wish needed a remake…any of them, but if you’re going to remake it and “remiagine” it, as MGM puts it, guess what you’re going to get when you put Eli Roth in charge of it. Yeeeeah. There was a reason this was not placed on the “Most Anticipated Fall Films Poll”. Bruce Willis, you’re lucky you’re working on Unbreakable 2, because between this and a lot of direct to video movies you’ve been doing lately, I’d be willing to call your career pretty much done. Death Wish also starsde Vincent D’Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue, Camila Morrone, Dean Norris and Kimberly Elise. Death Wish opens November 22, 2017, in case you thought this went well with turkey.

Again, like I said when I did Braveheart, sometimes your favorite scenes ARE the obvious ones, and there is a very good reason why this became The Sixth Sense‘s most iconic scene: it’s brilliant, brilliantly acted, brilliantly written, and it flat out tells you the secret ending of the film (which people were awfully good about not spoiling in 1999-probably not so much today) and you still don’t get it. The Sixth Sense is everything a scary movie should be: smart, tense, has a “gotcha” moment or two, but mostly builds a sense of suspense from the brilliant opening with Donnie Wahlberg (still the best Wahlberg actor, Mark, still) until the famous finish that we all should have seen coming. A lot of people will tell you they knew right away, but I didn’t, and the test scores say I’m fairly bright. Haley Joel Osment’s performance stands among the best child actor performances in film history, and I’m still mad he and Michael Clarke Duncan didn’t tie for the Oscar that year, because the two of them side-by-side holding Oscars would’ve been the greatest picture ever. Alright, so let’s talk about what happened to M. Night Shaymalan. Continue reading My Favorite Scene: The Sixth Sense (1999) “I See Dead People”
