M. Night Shyamalan’s comic book thriller Glass has topped the UK and Irish box office for the second week in a row taking £1.9M this weekend bringing its total cume to £6.3M. In the United States the film also remained number one. Globally the film has already taken $162M after two weeks of release.
The film starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy and Sarah Paulson brings together the narratives of two of Shyamalan’s standout original films—2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’s Split in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller.
From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men. Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series).
