For a 15 rating, the BBFC writes: “Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury.

“The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable. Strong sadistic violence is also unlikely to be acceptable.

“There may be detailed verbal references to sexual violence but the depiction of sexual violence must be discreet and justified by context.”

In Glass, the violence reference states: “A man being crushed by a figure with apparent super-strength, who breaks his spine.

“There are also shootings and heavy blows delivered with metal poles. There is implied cannibalism.

“Violent incidents result in bloodshed and images of bloody injury in their aftermath.

“There is moderate threat throughout, including scenes in which abducted young women are held prisoner and menaced by their captor.

The BBFC adds: “There is also moderate bad language and rude finger gestures.”

The plot for Glass reads: “M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass.

“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.

“Meanwhile the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.”

Glass is out in cinemas on Friday, January 18, 2019.
