Glass Returns to Unbreakable Comic Shop for Final Scenes

Glass Returns to Unbreakable Comic Shop for Final Scenes
Last week, Glass director M. Night Shyamalan announced production had wrapped on this sequel, which combines the worlds of his 2000 hit thriller Unbreakable and this year's low-budget hit Split. While the director didn't elaborate much on the production wrap, a new report has surfaced which revealed that the director actually wrapped at a familiar location, the same comic book shop he used in Unbreakable. Bill Fink, the owner of Ontario St. Comics in the Port Richmond area of Philadelphia, confirmed that director M. Night Shyamalan returned to the comic book shop for the last day of filming. Here's what Bill Fink had to say in a new interview.

"Since we were part of the original movie, Unbreakable, when Samuel L. Jackson was here knocking comics off a rack from his wheelchair, I guess we were a natural choice since it's a combined sequel between Unbreakable and Split. I guess they

This Iconic Unbreakable Location Is Returning For Glass

M. Night Shyamalan‘s Glass, the much-anticipated sequel to both 2002’s Unbreakable and 2017’s Split, is currently filming in Philadelphia. Following on from Bruce Willis’ shock cameo as David Dunn in the aforementioned pic, Glass will feature the super-strong hero facing James McAvoy’s “The Horde,” with Samuel L. Jackson also returning as Dunn’s old nemesis Elijah “Mr. Glass” Price.

And with Price coming back for more, so is one key location from the original movie. Unbreakable fans will remember that a depressed Mr. Glass went into a comic book store at one point where he found an issue of the fictional Sentryman comic. This inspires him to get back to work in convincing David that he’s a hero.

While talking to Star News Philly, Bill Fink – who owns Ontario St. Comics, the store seen in the film – revealed that Glass will also make use of his shop.

Could Fox Acquisition Finally Make Disney an Awards Power Player?

Could Fox Acquisition Finally Make Disney an Awards Power Player?
Disney has been one of the least awards-focused studios in the game for decades. The Burbank-based company even made a concerted effort to eliminate the specialty side of its movie business, selling off Miramax Films for $660 million in 2010 and only deigning to dabble in awards season fare with a handful of recent prestige productions like “The Help” and “Lincoln” through its distribution pact with DreamWorks.

How ironic, then, that with an acquisition of 21st Century Fox’s film divisions, it could mark a whole new era for Disney on the circuit. Through “Big” Fox and subsidiary Fox Searchlight, the studio would have a whole other silo far more adept at the awards game…if that’s even of interest, that is.

As if to prove that point, Fox blasted out a press release Monday morning in the wake of this year’s Golden Globe nominations announcement, beaming over a field-leading 27 mentions for a slew of films including

5 Great Film Endings In Cinema History

In my last editorial, I discussed some of cinema’s best movie introductions, stating the importance of why a movie should rope you in and keep you firmly fixed in your seat. But film endings are equally important! I cannot count how many times I have sat through what I like to call “throw away” endings, ones in which come across lazy just to tie up the feature because the filmmakers seemingly ran out of ideas after showing their best ones already. But it makes one feel good when a lot of thought has been put into a script, especially when it translates well on screen. And a big part of that is giving the audience a big pay in which they will walk away from the movie and remember it for.

Below are five film endings that I think are just a small portion of ones in which really deliver.

Cahiers du cinéma’s Top 10 Films of 2017 Includes ‘Twin Peaks: The Return,’ ‘Split,’ and ‘Good Time’

Established in the 1950s by André Bazin, Joseph-Marie Lo Duca, and Jacques Doniol-Valcroze, France’s Cahiers du cinéma has long been a bastion for quality film criticism. Year after year their rundown of the top films usually ignites a response, and we doubt 2017 will be any different — mostly notably when it comes to their top “film,” and perhaps a few other inclusions.

They’ve released their latest list, which includes a few films that won’t get a U.S. release until 2018 (Jeannette, The Day After, Lover for a Day). Also among the selections are some of this year’s finest films, Get Out and Good Time, as well as David Lynch’s 18-hour Twin Peaks: The Return, which also made Sight & Sound’s poll. Since they got a release in France this year, Certain Women, Jackie, and Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk also made the cut.

Samuel L. Jackson Wraps His Role as Mr. Glass in Split 2
The highly-anticipated sequel Glass, which brings together characters from both M. Night Shyamalan's 2000 film Unbreakable and this year's low-budget hit Split, started filming just last month, and it seems that principal photography is already winding down. Director M.

Glass Set Photo Offers Sneak Peek At Bruce Willis’ Returning David Dunn

The city of Philadelphia is currently playing host to M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, a sequel 17 years in the making, and today brings forth an all-new set photo to prove it.

First unveiled via Facebook (with a tip of the hat to ComicBook.com), this compilation offers up another sneak peek at Bruce Willis as the returning David Dunn. You know him, of course; he was the steely protagonist of Unbreakable, a man so strong and resilient he can bench press 350 pounds and walk away from a train crash without so much as a scratch. And in 2019, he’ll be welcomed back to the fray alongside Samuel L. Jackson as the dubious Elijah Price.

Completing the crossover are Anya Taylor-Joy and a topless James McAvoy, who were first introduced earlier this year via Split. And below, you’ll see all four characters moseying around the Philadelphia set:

Sarah Paulson Joins ‘The Goldfinch’ Adaptation at Warner Bros. (Exclusive)

Sarah Paulson Joins ‘The Goldfinch’ Adaptation at Warner Bros. (Exclusive)
With “American Horror Story” wrapping up another season, Sarah Paulson is looking to build on a busy schedule, as she is in negotiations to join Warner Bros. and Amazon Studios’ adaptation of “The Goldfinch,” sources tell Variety.

Ansel Elgort will play Theo and “Dunkirk” actor Aneurin Barnard will play Boris with John Crowley directing.

Based on Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer-winning book, “The Goldfinch” tells the story of a young man named Theodore Decker who survives a terrorist bombing at an art museum — an attack that kills his mother. From there, he tumbles through a series of adventures that finds him living in Las Vegas with his deadbeat father and, later, involved in art forgeries.

Paulson will play Xandra, the girlfriend of Theo’s father.

Earlier this year, Amazon Studios agreed to co-finance the film, which will go into production at the start of 2018. As part of the pact, Amazon will invest more than a third of the

Bruce Willis Battles James McAvoy In Glass Set Video

M. Night Shyamalan’s much-anticipated Glass, the sequel to both 2003’s Unbreakable and 2017’s Split, has been in production for about a month now. Last week, we got our first glimpse at one of the movie’s triumvirate of stars on set – namely, Samuel L. Jackson back in character as the titular Mr. Glass – and now, a juicy set video reveals Jackson’s co-stars: Bruce Willis and James McAvoy.

Not only that, but it sees the pair locked in a fierce fist fight. It appears that neither of them is able to best the other, until an unknown third character runs into shot to break up the clash.
