The full trailer:


M. Night Shyamalan has had an extremely spotty track record, but Unbreakable was the movie that showed that The Sixth Sense wasn't a fluke, and Split was his best movie in years.

Interesting how prominently Anya Taylor-Joy is featured in the trailer, including many scenes that appear to be completely separate from The Horde. Given that the main trio is stacked 2-to-1 in favor of the supervillains, I wonder if Casey Cooke will be revealed to be a superhero like David Dunn.

Im looking forward to this despite not liking Unbreakable which I think is one of his worst films.

I've also never really been a fan of Unbreakable, but enjoyed Split. I'll check this out unless the reviews are dismal.

I usually find myself nodding in agreement when reading your posts, but every now and then you come out with something like this, and I think to myself, "what is wrong with him." :)

Loved Unbreakable (his best, IMHO), and haven't really seen anything from him since the distastrous Lady In The Water, but just ordered and received Split on the strength of this thread, but haven't watched it yet.
It could be great, or it could be just garbage, but I guess we'll see ;)

:lol: Sorry mate.

To be honest I haven’t seen it in it’s entirety since 2000.

I plan on revisiting it before seeing this film.

I also was never a huge fan of Unbreakable. I remember being hugely excited for it after seeing The Sixth Sense, not to mention the initial teaser trailer showing Bruce Willis as the only survivor of the train crash. But I was underwhelmed when I saw it in theaters - I was in high school when it came out, where getting to see a new movie was a pretty significant pain in the butt to achieve, so I remember that sting of looking forward to the movie, putting effort into getting out to see it, and still being disappointed with the end result. I've seen it a couple times on DVD since then, and I've still always had the same response. I picked up the Blu-ray for free a couple years ago and haven't watched it yet, but will do so before seeing Glass. I'm excited to see the cast, and I think the movie has potential and I hope to love it... but since Unbreakable was never a favorite movie of mine, the idea of an Unbreakable sequel isn't an earth shattering development.

The element I'm most interested in is Anya Taylor-Joy's character. By the end of Split, I was convinced that she was one of the Supers too. I'm hoping my theory is confirmed and Glass lets us know what her abilities are.

I haven't seen the prior two movies. I do have them on disc with Unbreakable on BD and Split on 4K/UHD. I'm thinking of watching them now since those movies are connected to this new one.

I love Unbreakable but I can see why it’s not for everyone.


Bruce’s performance is very very subdued but it’s clearly the way it was intended and directed by Night.

I think it’s a well put together movie.
All the pieces just fit together beautifully and organically.

It ranks at number 4 on my list of favorite movies.

I remember liking Unbreakable a LOT back in the day, even more than The Sixth Sense (probably because someone rudely spoiled the ending, therefor getting a lot less out of it). I haven't seen it in years, but will gladly re-watch it and still need to see Split before this movie comes out. Though Signs was always my favorite M. Night film, Unbreakable was a very close second.

Signs was a good movie. But I have to admit, it actually did give me nightmares once. :eek:

I loved Unbreakable and Sixth Sense as well, but I still haven't seen Split. Need to rectify that before Glass comes out! ;)

Split was decent. I should probably revisit Unbreakable.

I'm disappointed that we have to endure Sarah Paulson if we want to watch Glass.

I'm also amazed that they seem to be allowing James McAvoy's bare butt in the green band trailer. No big thing IMO, but the MPAA is usually so uptight.

I think she's an excellent actress. Perhaps, I'm in the minority.
