I hope Anya Taylor-Joy’s character appearance is more than a cameo.

I loved Unbreakable, never saw Split, but wow this looks like it'll be awesome. Have to track down Split now to catch up.

I'm 50/50 on Unbreakable and haven't seen Split, but I'll certainly rectify that before January.  Great trailer.

really enjoyed split and unbreakable.
I could see how this movie could go way wrong but I'm excited. I think I'll
spend the next few months till I see it avoiding spoilers.

For me, UNBREAKABLE is right up there with THE DARK KNIGHT in terms of plot contrivances and lapses in logic. 

And don't get even me started on Bruce Willis's "kryptonite" in the film...

David Dunn /obviously/ has alien DNA.

UNBREAKABLE was great. Not perfect, but still the freshest take on film of the superhero genre in decades.

It shouldn't have sequels.

UNBREAKABLE is my favorite of Shyamalan's
films. Not a perfect movie but I never
expect perfection. Just entertain me with
a good story with interesting characters.

I really liked Unbreakable.  But part of what I liked about it was that at the end of the movie, it was still possible that Willis' character didn't have super powers.  I.e. was Glass just crazy, and managed to get Willis to buy into his psychosis, or was he right that he was somehow special.  There are people, after all, in the real world, who walk away from horrible disasters without a scratch now and again.  There are people who are physically stronger than they think.  And anybody can drown.

Obviously, this makes clear that he super powers are real, and so that makes me less interested in the whole thing.  I had a number of problems with basic premises in Split that make me not want to see it.  So that pretty much means this newfound 'franchise' is outside my wheelhouse.

I dunno Steve, Willis' character also had that "spider sense" thing. But it's possible to explain that away as being really good at your security job, and able to profile at a high success rate.
To me though when he maxed out those weights on the bench that made it real IMHO.

Anyway I haven't seen SPLIT, so I'll have to catch up first.

I agree with Don. UNBREAKABLE is ultimately a stupid movie. No interest in this at all from me.

The whole twist ending of the movie relies on David Dunn having genuine psychic visions of Glass’ past actions. I don’t think there was any ambiguity at all.

--------------------------------------
It depends on whether those were supposed to represent psychic visions, like seasons 2 and 3 of Millenium, or just him having pieced things together, like season 1 of Millenium.

Its obvious that Shyamalan either originally intended, or just decided since then, that the powers were real.  I freely yield that.

I must be really thick because I tend to look @ what is on screen. 

David Dunn is the only survivor of a crash, never got sick & when he brushes against people he gets a feel of what they are going to do/have done. 

These parts are revealed along the way. I did not get the sense that he was piecing itogether what people were doing but rather that he was piecing together what HE can actually do & the end is him embracing those abilities. 

Whatever people think of the film (I like it) it was his love letter to comics & I think he was playing fair with the audience in that regard.

Water is his kryptonite

I never took this to mean anything more than simply he
needs to breath. He can drown just like anyone else.

I think the movie FRAILTY would fit in this universe.

Not sure how that last bit has anything to do with being "unbreakable".

It's M. Night Shyamalan, I'll definitely pass.

Kevin I feel the opposite. Not that all his movies are good(the village) but I
lthink he's always worth taking a look.

I haven't seen an M. Night movie since SIGNS (2002), a movie I thought was so ridiculous, the "twist" ending so absurd, that I couldn't make myself pay to see another one of his films.  That said, I've heard some great things about SPLIT, so good in fact that I DVR'd it a couple of months ago when it was on HBO.  I plan to sit down and watch it this week.  We'll see...

Both Split and apparently this films approach to mental health is so hackneyed and propagates so many myths that are no longer recognized in the DSM (ie MPD) that I found it hard to watch. It's lazy writing that needed a day's worth of research to do right. Amazing technical work and suspense though.

Glass noticed he had a knack for spotting trouble in a
crowd (man trying to get a gun past security), and told
David to embrace those feelings, then David starts
having visions... hmmmm. Maybe Glass has a power after
all?
