"Glass in 2019" Blinding Edge Pictures,Blumhouse Productions. La lucha final entre los 'superhéroes' que no son superhéroes está a la vuelta de la esquina. Por primera vez, y por último, ya que es el final de una trilogía, los tres personajes creados por la mente de M Night Shyamalan ('El sexto sentido') se ven la cara. Sí, 'Glass' es la confirmación de que David Dunn, Elijah Price y Kevin Crumb están relacionados y son parte del mismo universo. Aunque seguramente ya lo sabías.
Just in case, for those who do not remember, first came 'The Protected' in 2000, a film starring Bruce Willis with Samuel L. Jackson, in which the first, who gave life to David Dunn, was safe to have superpowers. Many years later, specifically 16, came to the cinema a film called 'Multiple' and in which masterfully James McAvoy embodied a subject with many hidden personalities. Not only had a brutal collection, but kept a little secret for those who knew the first installment: the one that seemed a lonely film was part of 'The Protected'. Yes, Bruce Willis appears at the end watching the macabre Mr. Kevin Wendell Crumb. Unsurprisingly, the audience was stunned and soon the idea that a third tape was about to arrive began to be elucidated.
#4 A great release date: 22 December, 2019
And it came (well, it will hit the movie theaters on January 18). The director M Night Shyamalan has revealed that the final result has more than one hour less than what came out of a first filming. "The script was really long, it had at least 150 pages and in the first cut of the movie it turned out to be 3 hours and 20 minutes, then it started to 'squeeze' and 'squeeze' until it arrived at 2 hours and 8 minutes later ", the director told the Digital Spy media.
And what has been cut? Let's not be alarmed, according to the director, for this third installment he had many configurations with which to reintroduce the audience into the world of these 'superheroes', but then he realized that he did not need to do it. That is to say, that the cuts that have been carried out have to do with presentations of the characters mainly.
I have always said that a film is defined by its end: it can take away many points (as in the case of The Devil's Legacy) or it can raise it to a much higher level. One of the best closures of the cinema is undoubtedly the sixth sense. Without fear of being wrong, I think it's one of the most masterful twists the big screen has seen.
In almost all his films, M. Night Shyamalan has sought to suddenly change the narrative arc so that nothing of what we supposed to be true and beyond the surprise, what is intended is to generate a whole new narrative in the mind of the viewer. Shyamalan has never again achieved what he did in The Sixth Sense and in fact, his career was gradually declining with films that, in general, have disappointed. That until last year, when the story of Fragmentado and the extraordinary performance of James McAvoy as the unstable Kevin Wendell and his many personalities, left us with chills and the creeps, and more at the end - again - when the appearance of Bruce Willis as David Dunn, made us understand the connection with Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), the character of The Protected.
In little more than a month we will have in our movie theaters Glass, the expected crossover of El Protegido y Múltiple by M. Night Shyamalan. To be opening its mouth to face its premiere, Universal Pictures has launched a new and definitive trailer of Glass, which you can see through the video you will find above.
Through this final trailer of Glass you can intuit your argument better. Our three protagonists are interned in a psychiatric center, whose therapist does not believe at all that they are what they claim to be. Elijah Price (better known as Don Cristal) will manipulate Kevin Wendell Crumb to escape from the center and create real chaos in the city. Consequently, David Dunn will also be dragged into his wiles, who will have to face Kevin and his most dangerous personality: The Beast. The intention of Don Cristal is none other than to expose himself to the world and make people see that superheroes (and supervillains) exist.
