Video+Story: Glass by M. Night Shyamalan Preview

For me, Unbreakable was really the first superhero movie. Before the big box office Marvel and DC movies, we were introduced to David Dunn (Bruce Willis).

We find out that David Dunn is super strong and nearly indestructible after he survives a train wreck. We also meet Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson). His real name is Elijah Price, but got the nickname of Mr. Glass due to his fragility.

Mr. Glass is a big comic book aficionado. He figures if there is someone as fragile as him, it stands to reason there should be those on the other end of the spectrum as well. He has set out to find the super-human equivalent of himself. That is where David Dunn figures in the equation.

Then we have the movie Split with James Mcavoy playing a multiple personality person who goes by the name, the Horde. One of his personalities is a super human individual that has the most basic instincts. We have no idea that Split is connected to Unbreakable until the end scene that shows David Dunn in his characteristic rain coat.

Now we have Glass which is being billed as the third movie in the trilogy. From the trailers it appears that all three (Mr. Glass, Horde, and David Dunn) are all in the same asylum being treated for believing they are super heroes. Mr. Glass seems to be the evil mastermind using the Horde to carry out his demands. David Dunn is the quintessential good guy trying to stop them.

Unbreakable and Split were both really great movies in their own right. Knowing they are tied together in a trilogy elevates them in my mind. I am really hoping Glass puts a big exclamation point on the series.

Did you like Unbreakable and Split? Are you looking forward to Glass like we are? Let us know in the comments.

TNTM: Glass is the sequel to M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable

Unbreakable and Split get a sequel. Unbreakable was the superhero movie that preceded the blockbuster Marvel and DC superhero movies.

It managed to tell a great story about a superhero and super-villain without relying on high tech gadgets or CGI graphics. Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis really brought their characters to life.

Fast forward to present time. M. Night’s movie Split introduced us to a multiple personality bad guy played by James McAvoy. Split was a good movie in it’s own right. What got a lot of us fanboys excited was the cameo of Bruce Willis’s Unbreakable character, David Dunn. A lot of younger movie goers might not remember that character from a movie that was released 17 years ago. Us old timers had an absolute nerdgasm upon seeing Unbreakable linked to Split.

The sequel will be titled “Glass”. If you remember, Samuel L. Jackson’s villain character from Unbreakable was named Mr. Glass due to his medical condition giving him very fragile bones. There hasn’t been a lot of information given on this movie as of yet. M. Night Shyamalan has confirmed it is definitely linked to Unbreakable and Split. The early rumors are Mr. Glass is the main villain manipulating James McAvoy’s character to due his bidding.

If M. Night can recapture that magic he had with Unbreakable the movie will be amazing. I love to see heroes and villains depicted as everyday people instead of over-hyped blow-hards in tights and a cape. It will also be interesting to see Jackson, Willis, and McAvoy playing off each other on the big screen. This movie has the potential to be another box office hit for Shyamalan.
