No filmmaker in history has, for better or worse, turned into the skid quite like M. Night Shyamalan. Several terrible movies in a row—The Village, Lady in the Water, The Happening, The Last Airbender, After Earth—should have sunk his career, but thanks to the modest success of his low budget 2015 movie The Visit, he got a second chance to continue the modern superhero/supervillain saga that began with 2000's Unbreakable.

2017's Split was a covert sequel to the Bruce Willis/Sam Jackson vehicle, and now those stars team up with Split's James McAvoy for Glass, the trilogy closer we've been waiting 19 years for. While it looks like Shyamalan is leaning into the ridiculousness of his concept, I'm still not quite convinced this is where he pictured all of this heading from the very beginning.

I'm also concerned about the fact that Bruce Willis hasn't given a shit on screen in decades. Without McAvoy, Split would've been a decently entertaining movie, but he turned it into something more. With Jackson back in the fold, I have no doubt that Bruce Willis will have to try acting this time out, as he'll be very quickly overshadowed if he doesn't.

Glass opens in theaters across North America on January 18, 2019.
