M. Night Shyamalan is not one for traditional storytelling. So when he inserted that twist in Split, it showed that the world of Unbreakable was much bigger than we originally thought. That’s because it was revealed that Split took place in the same universe as Unbreakable, and the story would continue on with Glass.
Now Universal has released the newest trailer for Glass starring Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Bruce Willis in a film that could change the superhero genre as we know it. Check it out below.
Last weekend my kids and I saw Skyscraper, a decent if not unnecessary action thriller starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Paying so much homage it bordered on full ripoff, Skyscraper embraced its parallels to both The Towering Inferno and Die Hard in the marketing of the film. In the end, nearly every critic called it for what it was: another in a long line of Die Hard clones that are summed up by the now almost cliche “Die Hard in a _______.”
Die Hard came out 30 years ago this month (July 15, 1988). The film launched careers and redefined the action genre. It is, in my opinion, the greatest action movie ever made and one of the few perfect films. Based on Roderick Thorp’s 1979 novel Nothing Lasts Forever, Die Hard was directed by John McTiernan and of course starred Bruce Willis as sarcastic New York City cop John McClane out west in LA to reconnect with his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) over Christmas. McTiernan is a hugely underrated action director with Predator, The Hunt for Red October, Die Hard With a Vengeance, and the silly Last Action Hero under his belt.
“First name, Mister. Last name, Glass.” Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan‘s Glass, the follow-up to 2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal.
The sequel unites the two comic book films, from two distributing companies, for one explosive all-new comic-book thriller. Check out the trailer below.
MGM has released the first trailer for Death Wish, a remake (or “re-imagining”) of the 1974 revenge thriller of the same name starring Charles Bronson.
The remake is helmed by Cabin Fever, Hostel, and The Green Inferno director Eli Roth, and stars Bruce Willis in the same role Bronson played in the original, Elisabeth Shue, and Camila Morrone. The screenplay was penned by Joe Carnahan, the writer and director of Smokin’ Aces, The Grey, and the upcoming remake of The Raid.
