7 things to know before watching ‘Glass’

January 14, 2019

The movie opens this Thursday.

M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming movie ‘Glass’ brings together characters from ‘Unbreakable’ in 2000 and ‘Split’ in 2017. This finale to the ‘superhero’ trilogy makes it one of the most awaited movies of the year, especially since it also combines the acting calibers of Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Sarah Paulson.

While Glass is made to be a standalone movie, some elements might leave you a little confused. It is, after all, the third movie in the trilogy.

But worry not, here are a few things you need to know before watching ‘Glass’:

  1. David Dunn (Bruce Willis) makes a comeback fresh from his cameo in Split and Unbreakable. The only survivor of a horrible train crash, he has been living as a vigilante and offering help discreetly, putting a more humane approach to a superhero.
  2. This is the first movie since the Unbreakable (2000) where Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson starred in a film together. They also previously (and famously) starred in Die Hard: With a Vengeance.
  3. Director M. Night Shyamalan said that Glass is “the first truly grounded comic book movie.”
  4. Kevin was originally set to be another villain in Unbreakable but was rewritten into its own movie.
  5. Since Unbreakable was made with Touchstone Pictures (through Disney) and Split with Universal Pictures, the two companies had an agreement so M. Night Shyamalan can freely use all the characters for Glass.
  6. Deleted scenes from Unbreakable will be used as a flashback sequence in this movie
  7. Spencer Treat Clark (who plays David’s son), and Charlayne Woodard (who plays Elijah’s mother) reprise their roles from Unbreakable 19 years later. Anya Taylor Joy also reprises her role from Split.

Glass opens in UAE cinemas this Thursday.
