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.

The LEGO Movie 2 Box Office

The weekend box office numbers are in, and even though the animated sequel The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part took the top spot, it performed well below expectations.

The LEGO Movie 2 was expected to open with at least $50 million last weekend, but it only ended up with a haul of $34.4 million. That’s roughly half of what The LEGO Movie earned in its opening weekend back in 2014. Is this a case of franchise fatigue for the building brick property? Or did the marketing for the sequel just not appeal to audiences this time around? Read More »

how to train your dragon the hidden world box office

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is flying high at the box office, and it hasn’t even hit U.S. theaters yet. But while Glass holds strong at the domestic box office for a third weekend in a row, it better prepare to deal with a fiery competitor, as How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World rakes in millions at the overseas box office and at early access screenings.

Glass Box Office

January is usually dead when it comes to the box office, but this month has brought some high performers. Last weekend, The Upside surprised everyone by over-performing and taking the top spot away from Aquaman. This weekend, Glass landed in the top spot, albeit a little under expectations. But the real surprise came from the debut of FUNimation Dragon Ball Super: Broly, a low key release that somehow ended up landing the #3 spot.

Get the full rundown of Glass box office and the rest of the weekend chart below. Read More »

“Please enjoy this film that took 19 years to make!”

This sentence greeted me as I sat down at a pre-release screening of Glass last week, as the final part of a letter from its writer/producer/director M. Night Shyamalan to the audience. The upshot of the letter was basically, “Please don’t spoil Glass” (which I’m about to do, so…sorry!) but I could not help but latch onto that last sentence as I steeled myself for the crossover between two of Shyamalan’s earlier films, Unbreakable and Split. As a fan of the former film, a meditation on loneliness as filtered through a comic-book lens, I was hopeful that this follow-up was worth the wait.

Now that I’ve seen Glass, I fear that it would’ve taken the director at least another 19 years to make this movie any good.

glass ending

Spoilers for Glass follow,obviously.

M. Night Shyamalan has completed his superhero trilogy with Glass, now playing in theaters everywhere. The film brings together both Unbreakable and Split for a denouement that left many critics (myself included) rather cold. In my humble opinion, the Glass ending feels like a betrayal of everything I held dear about Unbreakable. But according to Shyamalan himself, he always intended to end his saga this way.
