It's Basically Impossible to Spot This Inside Joke Lurking in M. Night Shyamalan's Glass
Director M. Night Shyamalan has finally finished his Eastrail 177 Trilogy - which consists of Unbreakable, Split, and, now, Glass - wrapping up the stories of superhumans David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy). The latter suffers from dissociative identity disorder, with 24 individual personalities living within his psyche, making McAvoy's performance nothing short of astounding.

While sitting down with Fandango, the director explained how one of Kevin's many personalities, a Southern man identified as "Luke," is actually a nod to the film's real-life editor, Luke Ciarrocchi. Apparently Ciarrocchi has a notorious habit of spoiling the ends of films for his friends, which is why Shyamalan has McAvoy-as-Luke say in Glass, "Everybody knows the priest dies at the end of The Exorcist."

How Did Princess Margaret Die? The Depressing End to an Unconventional Royal Life

The second season of Netflix's hit series The Crown shed lots of light on Queen Elizabeth II's hapless younger sister, Princess Margaret. From her dramatic love life and nude photo scandal to her penchant for drinking and smoking, it's been made abundantly clear what most royal family aficionados knew all along: Margaret was never meant to blend in. She was always going to stand out.

Margaret was everything you'd expect a spare heir to be; much like Prince Harry and Princess Charlotte after her, she was irresistibly charming, attention-seeking, extroverted, and much more rebellious than her older sister - after all, if you don't bear the direct responsibility of one day taking the throne, you have less pressure put on you to be perfect. Margaret was only 22 when her sister became queen, and while her duties mostly consisted of representing the family on royal tours of Jamaica,
