There is a saying about not seeing the forest for the trees. Apparently I am living proof of that because until just recently, I had no idea that M. Night Shyamalan’s 2000 film Unbreakable was anyway connected to his 2016 film Split. I only knew that I liked Unbreakable when it came out. It starred Bruce Willis and Sam Jackson…what’s not to like. I also liked 2016’s Split as James MacAvoy absolutely ruled the screen as Kevin Crumb. But I didn’t get the connection between the two. Until I saw the previews for Shyamalan’s Glass. There was Bruce Willis and Sam Jackson again and I thought, cool…a sequel to Unbreakable. But what is James MacAvoy’s character doing in there? Only after a little research did I realize they were part of a trilogy. DOH!! Just proves you do not have to really smart to write stuff…just ask any politician.
The point of this is that Shyamalan recently revealed in an interview with Fandango that some scenes that were unused in Unbreakable will be included in Glass.
I don’t want to give too much away, but you do see moments from the original Unbreakable,” Shyamalan mentions. “Scenes you didn’t get to see. You’ll see the same actor change, you know, 18 years on camera in front of you which is really powerful.
Since most if not all of you were probably much more aware of the history of these films than I was, are you excited to see the third film in the trilogy? Are you curious what scenes from Unbreakable will be included? Share your insights with us at GVNation.
