Glass was released into theaters on January 18th, 2019. Filming locations include Allentown and Philadelphia, Pa. It was written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Shyamalan makes his trademark cameo as the man purchasing video surveillance equipment at Dunn Home Security. Shyamalan's character is actually the same person, in all three films of the trilogy. This is the third installment in the Unbreakable film series a.k.a. Eastrail 177 Trilogy. The name Eastrail 177 is taken from the train crash which sets the story into motion. The score was composed by West Dylan Thordson. The films first DVD release was on April 16th, 2019.
