    • Yeah, io9 really should have avoided the spoilery title. I saw it while scrolling through. Loved Unbreakable. Now I need to see the other one.

    • not really a spoiler for those who have seen split and understood the ending. a sequel combining both films was inevitable.

    • Now that we know who you are, I know who I am. I'm not a mistake! It all makes sense! In a comic, you know how you can tell who the arch-villain's going to be? He's the exact opposite of the hero. And most times they're friends, like you and me! I should've known way back when... You know why, David? Because of the kids. They called me Mr Glass.

    • It was cool how he connected unbreakable in the movie Split (hope that's not a spoiler...it's been out for a while).

    • I thought Split was well done. Didn't see Unbreakable, guess I must watch it now haha. Looking forward to this one.

    • First poster. I like it. Though I wonder why they show David Dunn in chains.

      I guess anyone who remembers Unbreakable (even vaguely) is supposed to wonder but twist master MNS has already given one away?
      Must be a minor twist
      For some reason I didn't think Willis was that thin though YMMV

      "Shyamalan announced Glass – a film that would tie Split and Unbreakable together. Shyamalan debuted footage from Glass at this year’s CinemaCon, and revealed that in the film, McAvoy, Willis and Samuel L. Jackson’s characters were all incarcerated together in an asylum. This poster re-affirms that, as we see the three characters sitting side-by-side in a hospital-like setting, with Willis in chains.

      Here’s the official synopsis:

      Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men."

      Thanks, I hadn't heard about that bit of information.

    • I really hope this works out - Unbreakable/Split were superb.

    • Rewatched Unbreakable after a while. Excellent movie. Glass looks very good too. Going to rewatch Split tomorrow.

    • I never got around to watching Unbreakable and I just saw Split about a month ago (it was decent). Guess I'll have to watch the first movie before I can see Glass.

    • The director mortgaged his home to partially finance this movie. This might be the end of his career if this film loses money.

      This is really sad because M. Night Shyamalan was once the toast of the town right after his 1999 film "The Sixth Sense". I can't remember the last time he had a hit movie, but I've been rooting for this guy to make a serious winning comeback. I really thought it was gonna be this movie. Now more than ever he needs my money on opening weekend at the box office.

      I haven't heard that about this film. I know he was funding this film, but given the recent success of The Visit and Split (both movies he also was involved in funding) I would think he would have the funds for this project. I doubt Glass could truly bankrupt him or end his career if it bombed. He will just continue making low budget movies like this one. Estimated 20 million budget should be easy to make back with the buzz around this pseudo trilogy movie.

      That's insane if true. Didn't think he'd be on the edge like that.

      I think there was a slight conspiracy re The Village, great movie but ppl didn't like to be hoodwinked.

      Before Hollywood became oversaturated with superheroes movies because of Marvel and DC films that they are now mainstream and unoriginal. Many still believe "Unbreakable" is still the best superhero movie of all time.
      That’s silly...everyone knows the best superhero movie of all time is Richard Donner’s Superman. 😁

      Just got home from a preview screening of Glass (that’s a little ‘thank you for your support but don’t spoil the movie’ note from Shyamalan in the shot below). I think Shyamalan swung for the fences on this one...and wound up with a foul tip.

      Shyamalan really goes for it, and for people who buy into what he’s attempting, Glass will be a real treat. For folks like me who couldn’t quite manage the buy-in, this movie fell on its face.

      I didn’t hate Glass...just thought its attempts to subvert genre conventions, comic book tropes, and our ideas about superheroes went a little far for my liking. At least that’s how I feel right now.

      The film does give you a lot to chew on so my view might change a bit once I’ve had more time to digest everything.

      Just a quick question. Last night did the Universal rep working check for ID when they took your screening pass? I'm asking because a RFD member was kind enough to send me an extra pass with their friend's name on it. I decided not to go because I remembered in previous Universal screenings they always asked for ID. Gofobo screenings hardly ever asked for ID.

      The pass I received didn't have my name (or anyone's name) on it.

      Did you go to the screening at Cineplex Yonge-Eglinton in Toronto? If so, was it just an older lady handing out tickets when you arrived?

      I got there around 5:45, handed over my pass to the lady, and she hardly gave it a glance before giving me the tickets.

      Mind you, the site that sent me the pass did mention that ID would be checked at certain locations, such as Montreal.

      I will be seeing "Superman" from 1978 again this weekend on the big screen. Cineplex is showing it this month.

      That's awesome. I know I saw Superman II on the big screen when it came out, but it's been so long that I don't remember if I ever caught the first one theatrically. I've got a pretty packed schedule, but I might still try to squeeze it in this weekend.

    • McAvoy is amazing in the role. The movie itself is just awful and pointless.

      edit: oh I also liked the background score.

      Agreed. McAvoy's role was great! But it was only mildly interesting until the last 45 mins. I had to google what the ending meant and am wondering if they left it open for yet another sequel? 2 bags of popcorn out of 5.
