Glass is the third film in a superhero thriller trilogy known as the Eastrail 177 Trilogy. This trilogy began with the movie, Unbreakable, which was released in 2000, and the second movie in this series was Split., which was released in 2016. All three of these films were written, produced, and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
Glass was released on January 18, 2019, by Universal Pictures in the United States. Internationally, this movie was released by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
The first movie in this trilogy, Unbreakable, is about a security guard, David Dunn, played by Bruce Willis, who learns that he has superhuman abilities. He discovers this through a comic book art dealer, Elijah Price, played by Samuel L. Jackson. Elijah was born with a rare disease that made his bones extremely fragile and easily breakable. He had many hospital stays in which he spent his time reading comic books. During that time, he formulated a theory that if on one extreme, he was extremely fragile, there must be someone on the other extreme who was “unbreakable.”
To test this theory, he orchestrates a series of disasters including a train crash that David Dunn was involved in and was the sole survivor. During this movie, David Dunn learns about his superhuman powers and Elijah emerges as Mr. Glass, who will be his nemesis.
The second film in this series, Split, follows a different character, Kevin Wendell Crumb, played by James McAvoy. Kevin plays a man with dissociative identity disorder (DID), who had at least 23 distinct personalities, who he calls “The Horde.” In the story, one of his personalities kidnapped three teenagers, Casey, played by Anya Taylor-Joy, Claire, played by Haley Lu Richardson, and Marcia, played by Jessica Sula. During the course of this movie, it is discovered that there is 24th personality known as “The Beast,” who is a cannibalistic sociopath with superhuman capabilities.
Glass takes place shortly after the events of Split. In this movie, Kevin Crumb and David Dunn are captured by the authorities and taken to a mental hospital. Mr. Glass resides in this hospital.
Glass has not received very good reviews. It only scored 36% on Rotten Tomatoes.
