163: Glass

The first 2019 release for the #PressPassBoyz is the much-anticipated addition to M. Night's "Unbreakable" universe, "Glass." Does this trilogy's finale live up to expectations? How does it stack up against 2000's "Unbreakable" and 2017's "Split?" Plus, how were the signature M. Night Shyamalan twists? From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb's superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men. Spoiler-free for the first 20 minutes! There's quite the SPLIT between the critics & audience... who's will is more UNBREAKABLE?! Join the conversation on Twitter: @MACandGUpodcast
