M. Night Shyamalan Reveals 2019 'Unbreakable' Sequel Is Called 'Glass'




THR is reporting that the sequel to "Split" will be called "Glass," as in Mr. Glass, the villain from M Night Shyamalan's "Unbreakable," as played by Samuel L Jackson. It looks like we're entering a Shyamalan superhero cinematic universe. I say, why not? "Glass" is set for a 2019 release according to the same article.

M Night Shyamalan's comeback has been official since "Split" topped the box-office for three weekends in a row. It had practically made $100 million in those three weekends alone and made, overall, close to $150+ million. An all out smash for Blumhouse and Universal. The film had a budget of $9 million. 

I though it was a silly, but well-orchestrated film that benefited from James McAvoy's incredible  performance. 

As for the twist, I have to mention that reveal at the end, you should stop reading this if you haven't seen the film ... Although the title of this post should already be an indicator.

Bruce Willis' superhero from "Unbreakable" shows up to reveal what will likely be a melding of both films for a future sequel. I have been an avid admirer of Shyamalan's "Unbreakable," at the very least a toss-up with "The Sixth Sense "for his best film. There have always been rumors of a sequel happening and I always looked forward to that, but I don't know if I want it to go in the direction the film seems to be hinting it is going. One reason why "Unbreakable" was so good was that it deconstructed the superhero genre to its core and didn't reveal itself as being a superhero movie until its very last frame. This next movie would likely go full on creature vs superhero .... unless Shyamalan will, again. surprise us and give us something more subtle. With all that being said, I do love the fact that people that, all thanks to "Split," have never seen "Unbreakable" are now going to discover it.
