The New, Magnificent Trailer For Glass Will Absolutely Give You Chills

The New, Magnificent Trailer For Glass Will Absolutely Give You Chills
You might think you're ready for M. Night Shyamalan's Glass, but are you? Really? On Thursday, an extended teaser was unleashed unto the world, and it has everything: we've got all sorts of new personalities bursting out of Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), plus terrifying new glimpses of his "Beast" persona (who appears to clash with Bruce Willis's David Dunn). We even get a few glimpses of costars Sarah Paulson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Spencer Treat Clark, and Charlayne Woodard.

Previously, the first few teasers and trailers for the third film in the series - which includes 2000's Unbreakable and 2016's Split - were each only 15 seconds long. The film will follow David as he goes after Crumb, while also contending with Samuel L. Jackson's manipulative Elijah Price (code name: Mr. Glass), who wants to harness the Beast's power for his own nefarious cause. Watch the latest footage in all its glory above,

Glass TV Trailer Unleashes Unbreakable Superhumans on the World

Glass TV Trailer Unleashes Unbreakable Superhumans on the World
The latest Glass TV spot unites the bad guys. M. Night Shyamalan's highly anticipated sequel to Unbreakable and Split is only a few months away from hitting theaters, and as the new spot says, "this won't be like a comic book." Shyamalan has been asked for a proper follow up to Unbreakable for years, and he finally unveiled it in the best possible way at the end of 2016's Split, which tied that movie together with the 2000 fan-favorite in a surprising way that brought the director back to the top of his game.

Now, Glass reunites Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis from Unbreakable, while adding James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy from Split. The results look violent and unhinged, with most of the new TV spot putting the focus on the bad guys, Mr. Glass and The Beast. McAvoy looks truly terrifying in the footage, taking his performance from

New Extended "Superhuman" TV Spot For M. Night Shyamalan's Glass

Sarah Paulson‘s character, Doctor Ellie Staple, wants some convincing that superheroes exist in this new extended TV spot for director M. Night Shyamalan’s highly anticipated film Glass.

This film is the sequel to both Unbreakable and Split and in it Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) teams up with The Beast (James McAvoy) in the story to take on David Dunn (Bruce Willis) so that Mr. Glass can prove to the world once and for all that there are people in the world that exist with extraordinary powers.

This movie looks so damn good! I’m especially looking forward to seeing how the story plays out and what big twist it will lead to in the end. Do you have any theories one what that twist might be?

Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters,

New ‘Glass’ TV Spot Pushes the Comic Book Angle *Hard*

Superhero films are hot so Universal Pictures is selling the comic book angle of M. Night Shyamalan‘s Glass, his universe-building sequel to both Unbreakable and Split. There’s a lot of new footage in this TV spot, which makes the “X-Men”-esque plot abundantly clear: Elijah Prince/Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) uses Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) to break out […]

New Glass Photos Showcase The Hero, Villain And Mastermind

As someone who’s been a long-time cheerleader for M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable, I was inordinately pleased to hear about Glass. Ever since the surprisingly great Split ended with an unexpected tie-in linking it to the Unbreakable universe, I’ve been on tenterhooks waiting to see how they’re going to bind the two films together, and where Bruce WillisDavid Dunn and Samuel L. Jackson’s Elijah Price are at now nearly two decades on from the events of their first cinematic outing.

I’ll have to wait until next January to find out for sure, but we already know quite a bit from the trailers and promotional materials about how the movie opens. And now, adding on to all that are three new stills from the movie courtesy of Total Film that don’t exactly reveal any major developments, but are certainly welcome nonetheless.

Oscars: Trio at the Top in the Lead Actress Race

Oscars: Trio at the Top in the Lead Actress Race
At this point in the Oscar race, all of the serious contenders for lead actress have been seen. So how is this year’s field stacking up?

Three performances feel like shoo-ins for nominations: Olivia Colman’s mad Queen Anne in “The Favourite,” a controversial category placement decision for a role some argue is supporting (though the film really features triple leads); Lady Gaga’s portrayal of a working-class diamond-in-the-rough in “A Star Is Born,” which could be one of two bids in the picture for the recording superstar, including original song recognition; and Melissa McCarthy’s best work yet as author/cat lady Lee Israel in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?,” which should make her a return contender after her first nomination seven years ago for “Bridesmaids.”

The battle for the gold likely lurks among that trio, but it will be interesting to see how the final two slots

AFI Fest Film Review: Sandra Bullock in ‘Bird Box’

AFI Fest Film Review: Sandra Bullock in ‘Bird Box’
When it comes to the movie “Jaws,” there’s a myth so often repeated that hardly anyone stops to question it anymore: The story goes that because Spielberg couldn’t get his giant mechanical shark to work, he was forced to shoot around it, resulting in a more effective film. That’s true up to a point. Sharks are scary, and the mere suggestion of one — coupled with the sight of a giant fin slicing through water, menacing p.o.v. shots, and the most menacing score ever written — is certainly more frightening than the sight of a malfunctioning rubber dummy. But there are countless examples, from Freddy Krueger to the clown from “It,” of horror-movie nightmares that are terrifying precisely because we do see them.

And then there’s “Bird Box,” a not-inexpensive Netflix thriller which pushes things to the other extreme, conjuring some kind of deadly phenomenon the

Halloween Pushes Blumhouse Productions Past The $4 Billion Box Office Mark

It’s been a great month for the new Halloween movie, which means good news for the studio behind it, with David Gordon Green’s latest release helping to push Blumhouse Productions’ total global gross in these last nine years past the $4 billion mark. And for a studio that specializes in relatively low-budget, financially low-stakes works, this milestone is a pretty clear sign that their model is still working.

Blumhouse set the trend for its horror-heavy output with its first wide release, 2009’s Paranormal Activity, which managed to rake in $200 million worldwide on a budget of just $15,000. Since then, the found-footage flick has grown to be one of several highly profitable franchise’s that the studio helped create, with the Insidious and Sinister movies following in its wake.

Things have only gotten better for the studio in recent years, too. 2017, for instance, gave Blumhouse its two highest-grossing movies to date

Jason Blum Gets Booed and Removed from Stage After Speaking Out Against Trump at L.A.’s Israel Film Festival

Jason Blum Gets Booed and Removed from Stage After Speaking Out Against Trump at L.A.’s Israel Film Festival
Jason Blum spent the night of the midterm elections at the Israel Film Festival in Los Angeles, where he was on hand to receive the 2018 Achievement in Film & Television Award. Blum attempted to speak out against Donald Trump while making his acceptance speech, but his comments did not go over well with the crowd. Variety reports the mega-producer was booed and heckled by the crowd, and he was eventually removed from the stage.

“A lot is on the line, the last two years have been hard for all of us who cherish the freedom as citizens of this country,” Blum said at the start of the speech, which immediately attracted boos from the audience. As Blum continued, Variety reports some audience members began to walk out of the event held at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills.

“The great thing about this country is that you can like Trump, but I don’t have to,

Ed Oxenbould comes of age in Paul Dano’s ‘Wildlife’

Writer-director Paul Dano and Ed Oxenbould on the set of ‘Wildlife’.

Ed Oxenbould rates his role in Paul Dano’s Wildlife, in which he stars alongside Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal, as among his favourites.

In the film, Oxenbould plays 14-year-old Joe, who has just moved to Montana with his parents Jeannette (Mulligan) and Jerry (Gyllenhaal). The ‘60s set coming-of-age tale centres on him as their marriage slowly disintegrates.

Oxenbould tells If that Joe is a complex, interesting character, who was bolstered through the writing of Dano and partner Zoe Kazan, who adapted Richard Ford’s novel of the same name.

“It was really different to anything I’d done before. It required a lot of emotion and a lot of watching, a lot of observing. That’s what made it seem really interesting; I thought it would be a great challenge.”

Samuel L. Jackson on His Return to the ‘Unbreakable’ Universe in ‘Glass’

Samuel L. Jackson on His Return to the ‘Unbreakable’ Universe in ‘Glass’
M. Night Shyamalan totally M. Night Shyamalan’d Samuel L. Jackson with the ending of his 2016 comeback hit, Split. Shyamalan told Jackson he needed to set up a screening to see the film, adding, “Call me when it’s over.” Split’s final moments offer one of Shyamalan’s best twists ever (spoiler alert!) when Bruce Willis pops up as his proto-superhero character from 2000’s Unbreakable, thus revealing that Split’s multiple-personality monster (James McAvoy) exists in the same universe as that movie — which, of course, also starred Jackson as Elijah Price,

Who are the 20 greatest horror movie villains of all time? Take a tour through our haunted photo gallery to find out what blood-curdling baddies made the cut… if you dare.

The most recent entry in our rankings is from the striking success of M. Night Shyamalan‘s 2017 film “Split.” Its anti-hero Kevin Wendell Crumb (James MacAvoy in a tour-de-force performance embodying a number of horror personae) has already become a bit of a horror icon.

We searched far and wide through every goblin, ghoul, and goth to come up with a comprehensive list, and while there were plenty of demented killers or demon-possessed tykes to consider, we couldn’t include everyone.
