M Night Shyamalan returned to his beloved cult hit Unbreakable very briefly in the James McAvoy-starring horror flick, Split, back in 2016, and from that point on, a third film set in the same universe seemed inevitable. So when McAvoy and Unbreakable stars Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson did indeed reprise their previous roles for trilogy-capper Glass earlier this year, expectations were high that this was going to be a belter.
Glass teamed the trio of Elijah Price, aka Mr. Glass (Jackson), David Dunn (Willis), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (McAvoy) up for a collection of encounters that saw them first try to break out of an asylum where they were being held and quizzed by American Horror Story‘s Sarah Paulson, but in the end, as so many things do, it all came down to a battle of good, evil, and something in between.
Reviews were mixed when critics and audiences were hit with the final offering, but if you’ve been waiting to catch it at home, you’ll be able to pick up a copy here in the UK on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD from April 16. Glass will be streaming digitally two weeks ahead of that on April 2.
Pre-orders are open at Amazon now.
