Los Angeles : Indian-American filmmaker M Night Shyamalan is teaming up with Universal Pictures for two new original thrillers, slated for release in 2021 and 2023, respectively.
Night Shyamalan has recently earned himself a successful comeback by continuing the story he started in 2000’s Unbreakable with Split and Glass . Night Shyamalan started financing his movies himself . Night Shyamalan take on another science fiction movie?
Night Shyamalan has experienced this several times in his career, most recently with Glass , the final chapter of his Eastrail 177 trilogy that began with Unbreakable and continued with Split .
M. Night Shyamalan has explained why he originally thought this scene would open the movie thusly: Structurally, what I wanted to do with the movie was to kind of say to the audience that the whole movie is going to take place in one location.
Night Shyamalan Feels About Glass' 200 Million Box Office Success It was a slow January at the box office, but the biggest film of 2019 so far is M.
M Night Shyamalan's writing may still be his calling card, despite multiple critical flops Considered to be the second film of his fabled second-act, M Night Shyamalan’s Glass (2019) has made nearly US $73.5 million in the first ten days of its release and reaffirmed Hollywood’s faith in someone who was literally in director's hell just five years ago.
Night Shyamalan has been No. 1 at the box office for the past three week, pushing its domestic total to $88 million. Night Shyamalan (@MNightShyamalan) Glass ' control on the box office likely isn't going to last much longer.
The first, and arguably best act, is much like the movie I thought Unbreakable was going to be nineteen years ago; a vigilante film where Dunn and his son Joseph, (played once again by Spencer Treat Clark) track down and stop criminals.
Unbreakable and Split weren’t great but I still liked them and I pretty much felt the same way about this which makes it a good companion piece, and I can honestly say I enjoyed this more than many films actually based on comic books.
*SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* Closer in tone and intent to “Unbreakable” than its immediate predecessor “Split”, “Glass” sees filmmaker M Night Shyamalan returning to the world of comic book super heroics, not to homage or reimagine them, but to deconstruct them – especially their latest cinematic incarnations.
Those two Shyamalan movies collided in a big way with Glass , as the director weaved the stories and characters together into an epic crossover film. While the story could potentially live on through Anya Taylor-Joy's Casey and Spencer Treat Clark's Joseph Dunn, it just wouldn't be the same.
Glass Movie appears like a conclusion to the story that was being built all this time by the visionary director M. It is a genius way woven into the story by Night Shyamalan who chooses to use an insane flashing light that would strobe whenever The Beast tried to make a sudden move.
Jackson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Sarah Paulson, Spencer Treat Clark, Charlyne Woodard, Luke Kirby, and Adam David Thompson Studio(s): Universal Pictures; Blumhouse Productions; 2:39.1 Following the conclusion of Split , Glass finds David Dunn pursuing Kevin Wendell Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Elijah Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
In Glass we learn that David Dunn has continued to play part time hero, occasionally going out to walk the streets and look for bad guys.
Acting as a conclusion to a trilogy, there is no question that the film brings an end to the story of David Dunn, the hero drowned in a shallow puddle by the group I’ve dubbed the Black Clover Society, but at the same time the movie also inspires a complex debate: should this be the end of a franchise, or maybe the kick start of a new era that further explores the world?
Ok, I know it's easy to find the excitement, but we've been burned before -- let's just move on together from John McClane and appreciate the movie's Bruce Willis has already made with the character.
Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, Shyamalan doesn’t go that route and turns Glass into an actual superhero movie by unveiling a giant conspiracy theory as his secret sauce.
But not me…” But once “Glass” moves into the mental asylum, Shyamalan’s version of Arkham, the film begins to fall apart as these three characters cannot come together in a fully satisfying way, and things begin to drag as he underplays everything to where everyone needed an overdose of coffee or Red Bull.
Shyamalan, given three tremendous characters and a build-up of his own universe, literally shrinks it all to a few poky rooms with white walls (or mellow pink) and a whole lot of gibberish that is delivered by Sarah Paulson as if she’s re-enacting every basic psychiatrist in the cinema history.
M. Night Shyamalan Explains His Intentions With The Glass Ending WARNING: The following is going to load up on spoilers for Glass . By the end of Glass , Elijah (Samuel L.
Glass is a self-indulgent misfire by Shyamalan who, in his attempt to pull a fast one over the audience, forgets that he has a trilogy to tell, resulting into long-winded half-baked mess that’s more like a book report on comic book tropes.
Glass , a sequel to both Split and Shyamalan's 2000 film Unbreakable , was fast-tracked following its predecessors extreme success -- but it might not wind up having the same kind of box office impact by the time that it's done with its theatrical run.
