glass 2019 glass (2019) true detectives season 3

Directed by M Night Shyamalan

Release Date: January 18th, 2019
Summary: Security guard David Dunn uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has 24 distinct personalities.
Glass is the third film in a trilogy that has taken M. Night Shyamalan 19 years to complete. The first film was Unbreakable and it was released in 2000 shortly after the success of The Sixth Sense. Then Split came out 16 years later and before long Glass was announced.
The original script for Unbreakable had James McAvoy’s character Kevin as a villain for Bruce Willis’s character David to face off against. But Shyamalan couldn’t make it work in just one movie. This is how Kevin ended up getting his own movie, with Glass as the culmination of that original idea.

The film series is also known as The East Trail 177 trilogy. This is the first auteur shared superhero universe. The films are not sole based or adapted from any particular source. However, Shyamalan drew inspiration from the following comic books: Saga, Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire, Sand Castle, Paper Girls, Daytripper, and Last Look.
