Glass and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

The ratings board has another busy week, but this time around the quantity did not make for much action, as there is just a single wide release (at least with a solid release date) to talk about. It is at least a good one as M. Night Shyamalan followup to Unbreakable and Split comes together in a hopefully satisfying conclusion with Glass. And that is it - though there are plenty of limited release films to peruse should you find yourself with nothing better to do.

I have to admit, I had pretty much written off M. Night Shyamalan after a series of disappointing films, culminating in the absolute travesty that was The Last Airbender. But then, something interesting happened, Shyamalan went back to what made him popular: horror, and it worked. Yes, he still has to throw in that twist he is so well-known for, but it worked in The Visit and then something even better came along: Split. Thanks to excellent casting (James McAvoy is simply perfect) and a surprise cameo from none other than Bruce Willis - the film suddenly turned from a mere excellent thriller into a thriller that is actually part of a trilogy. That's right, Split takes place in the same world as Unbreakable - and everything is going to come together in Glass. All the gang is here: McAvoy, Willis, along with Samuel L. Jackson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Spencer Treat Clark, also including some new faces in Sarah Paulson and Luke Kirby. The first trailer was interesting, with Paulson as a doctor interviewing our three main individuals, which makes it seem like all three are delusional, even Willis - as all three are chained down. The film bills itself as a battle of good vs. evil, with an evil mastermind (in this case Mr. Glass - Jackson) working behind the scenes with a secret that will affect both men. I'm on board, Unbreakable is actually my favorite Shyamalan film to date - and Split is right up there. If Glass can capture that same magic as both of those films, it will be a trilogy to remember. Rated PG-13 for violence including some bloody images, thematic elements, and language.
