Lubbock's Stars and Stripes Drive-In presents... Glass

     It’s an evening of twists and turns at Lubbock’s Stars and Stripes Drive-In as director M. Night Shyamalan delivers the third installment in a trilogy that’s been more than a decade in the making! Starring Bruce Willis, James McAvoy, and Samuel L. Jackson in the title role… it’s Glass!

     It’s been almost 20 years since Jackson’s Elijah Price declared himself Mr. Glass at the surprise ending of the superhero film, Unbreakable. Despite eventually developing a huge following with audiences, the film was somewhat of a disappointment at the box office. This forced Shyamalan to shelve any hopes he might have had for a sequel and move on to other projects. The director, however, had a trick up his sleeve.

     In the original script for Unbreakable, Shyamalan included a subplot where Willis’ David Dunn battled a character with multiple personalities. Ultimately, the subplot threw off the balance of the film and was cut, but not for good as the director would pick up the pieces years later and develop the story for Split. The thriller, starring James McAvoy, was a hit with audiences and box offices, and was regarded by many as Shyamalan’s triumphant return to form. This opened the door for the director to finally make the sequel to his now highly-acclaimed Unbreakable by reuniting it with his more recent hit.

     In a climate now saturated with superhero films, it will be interesting to see the impact Glass has on the genre. One thing, however, is certain. When it comes to a M. Night Shyamalan film, expect the unexpected. 

 

See you at the drive-in!
