Glass Blu-ray

Glass, the conclusion to M. Night Shyamalan‘s trilogy that started with Unbreakable and continued with Split, underwhelmed critics, but that didn’t keep audiences away. The movie was a huge hit, and now the Glass Blu-ray is headed our way. Glass will be available on Digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand in April, and the release will be loaded with over an hour of special features.

I’m a ride or die Shyamalan defender. I never gave up on the filmmaker, even when others had. I think Unbreakable is his masterpiece, and I also enjoyed one of his big comeback films, Split. With that in mind, I was extremely hyped for Glass, the film that served as the third entry in what’s unofficially referred to as the “Eastrail 177 Trilogy.” Shyamalan brought back Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson from Unbreakable, and put them in a movie with James McAvoy‘s character from Split. I went into the film overflowing with enthusiasm.

And then the movie started! And my spirits began to sink lower and lower, to the point where they were sinking through the floor of the movie theater and into the basement. In short, I was not a fan, and felt disillusioned. But I’m still an M. Night fan, and when Glass hits Blu-ray in April, I’m going to give it another chance. Perhaps going into the film with far less excitement might turn me around.

Glass will be available on Digital April 2, and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand April 16. There are a whole slew of special features, including 12 deleted scenes, and an alternate opening. Here’s a look at the features.
