The narratives and main characters of Unbreakable and Split will collide in M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, a forthcoming sequel to both films that’s gearing up for pre-production. Today brings the official plot synopsis.

“Following the conclusion of SPLIT, GLASS finds David Dunn pursuing Kevin Wendell Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Elijah Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.”

Unbreakable‘s antagonist Samuel L. Jackson returns as Elijah Price/Mr. Glass, while Bruce Willis reprises his role as the film’s hero, David Dunn.

Anya Taylor-Joy, who escaped Split, also stars with James McAvoy returning as “The Beast.” Sarah Paulson rounds out the main cast.

    Hmmm…I wonder if David and Kevin are somehow brothers… i hope not.

    • oh_riginal

      Because they were SPLIT, they never got to make an UNBREAKABLE bond?? It shattered like GLASS!!! 😉

      • Saturn

        So I guess we all know now what name M Knight posts under on BD….
        🙂

        (or am I really the Shams?) – now THAT would be a twist!

  • Candice

    I don’t expect this to be good. M.Night flops so hard anymore. Unbreakable was the last good film he did. Split was really bad. The ending with David there seems like a good idea on paper and then when you see it, it felt out of place and wrong. Not exciting. James McAvoy delivered in his role in Split but the plot utterly sucked. I don’t think Paulson will save this either with her amazing acting.

      You can dislike Split, but it was a success, I love it. The Visit was awesome too

      I believe Unbreakable was the last film YOU like it

    • ChinoX813

      Split, as I write this is one of the most profitable films of the year and has gotten a fair amount of good reviews so anyway you slice it, that isn’t a flop. “The Visit” also did pretty well for itself.

      • Candice

        It’s a flop in terms of how bad M Night is at telling stories anymore. I don’t care what movies make in the box office per se. I am talking about how M Night is hack who had some good ideas once and now he wants to reclaim that after a long series of disappointments.

        • ChinoX813

          Well, I guess in those terms I could say Micheal Bays “Transformers”movies are a serious full of flops.

          • Candice

            Michael Bay movies have always been terrible. Box Office lard.

          • Bradley John Michael MacDonald

            Why are you trying to start an argument with everyone in the comments?…Are you really that desperate for attention? nobody cares about your opinion and shitty comments anyways kick rocks lol

          • Candice

            Yeah…. Another shithead for the pile on. Big men on comments section can’t handle someone not liking a movie. Let’s be dicks and then accuse them of starting the shit. It would be too big of a concept for you to understand though.

        • Cappy Tally

          Terms like “flop” and “bomb” refer pretty clearly to either a film’s financial performance or its reception by critics. SPLIT did well with both. Calling it a flop just because you didn’t like it is inaccurate and stupid.

          • Candice

            I guess if you really want to nerd out and get your panties in a wad over shitty M Night movies.

          • Saturn

            Why is Cappy “nerding” out about the movie?
            Surely you aren’t one of those who think “oh someone likes something I don’t – THEY’RE WRONG AND NERDS!”.
            Please don’t be that guy. Or gal., Or non binary gender specific Elven clan.

          • Candice

            This isn’t really about anything other than this other guy being a dick because I didn’t like the movie. He could have discussed it in any way he wanted to but decided to zero in on the term flop. That makes him a nerd in my eyes. It’s time wasting and now look at everything.

          • Cappy Tally

            You’re the one that wandered in here of your own free will to whine about a movie that doesn’t even exist yet, but by all means when you’re cornered and can’t think of jack shit to say, go ahead and try using “nerd out” as an insult.

          • Candice

            I will do and say what I want. You obviously can’t handle it so you are pissing and moaning over simple terminology. Kudos to you for turning this isn’t a pissing match rather than a discussion over quality. People are allowed to have different opinions. People are allowed to use flop in more instances than box office totals. Don’t like it go cry to someone else.

          • MYKEE WATTZ

            So you can do what you want and cry all day and he cant? You really think that highly of yourself?I think you need a tampon.

          • Candice

            Oh good this just devolved into nerd sexism. Thanks for stopping by.

          • Cappy Tally

            You can absolutely do and say what you want, but in this case, what you are saying happens to be wrong. Your misuse of common industry terms like “flop” is not a matter of opinion, it’s a matter of language and word choice. This discussion only occurred because you didn’t know what a “flop” really is, and while such a slip up really isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things, your childish refusal to acknowledge and accept such a simple, innocent little mistake is rather unbecoming. When confronted with this, you could have accepted it and moved on, but instead you chose to rudely mock and insult myself and those who have responded to you. In short, you are being a major douchebag for the pettiest of reasons. So please, do yourself a favor and walk away now before you make an even bigger ass out of yourself. Put your toys in your wagon, walk home, and let the adults talk.

          • Candice

            No it’s not wrong, it’s different than your opinions. Flop is widely used in all sorts of areas and you are just hanging on to one idea to make a lame point. You are just out of touch with how things are used now. And that’s really not my fault or my problem. You are insulting and pathetic just because I didn’t like a movie you liked. And instead of putting your big boy panties on and discussing things about the movie, you zeroed in on Flop. It’s all you had and I get it. But still this is dumb. But not because of me. I am just standing up for myself and backing up my thoughts on the matter. You just want the one up here. If it means that much to you, you can have it. But you are still making this about a technicality that you don’t fully understand. Have a nice day.

          • Cappy Tally

            Except words have meaning. Sure, language evolves, but it’s not without boundaries or expectations. The most common use of the term “flop” in discussions of cinema refers quite specifically to either its financial reception or its critical reception, not to individual tastes. I don’t care what you think about the film itself, but calling it a flop when it isn’t one is simply incorrect. If that was all you did I’d have left it alone, but you deliberately choose to ignore the correct usage of the term because of your own stubborn pride, and resorted to childish insults when confronted with this information. For that, I dub thee “willfully ignorant & prideful douchebag” and do so with a clear conscience.

          • Candice

            You still don’t get it. LOL! Keep going though. You are typing a lot of stuff not really being read. You win. You get the last word.

    • Saturn

      Gotta respectfully disagree with you here – although Shams had a period – ahem – in the wilderness after initial success, he really seems to be back in stride with Devil (I know he didn’t direct, but still), The Visit and Split.
      If you didn’t dig them then fine – it’s all about a person’s own opinion, and opinions differ.
      Personally I’m looking forward to Glass and hope that the guy has left the lesser movies behind him.

      • Candice

        I think it could have had potential if he didn’t wait this long to address. He should have cranked these movies out back then when he still had a good creative edge. He got caught up in the machine and churned out some real stinkers. But seeing David at the end of Split really made the movie turn into something else right at the end. It felt like when you fall asleep with the tv on and then wake up to another movie. Just out of place.

        • Sam Beckett

          Really made the movie turn into something else right at the end? Isn’t that a hallmark of MNS in that most of his films are one genre then something different. Sixth Sense – paranormal horror turned drama of a man letting go. Unbreakable – thriller mystery turned superhero movie. Signs – alien invasion turned drama about crisis of faith. Village – good idea turned into crap movie. Etc?

          • Candice

            Not in a good way. In an out of place way. It wasn’t really a good twist ending but more or an outsider piece trying to be crammed in.

          • Sam Beckett

            Sorry you didn’t like it mate. As a fan of Unbreakable (saw it in theatres) it was pretty much something I’d been waiting on for years. I made a sound no man should be able to make.

          • Candice

            That’s cool. I don’t actually have a problem with people who liked it. Just these assholes here who went on the defense about it and decided they couldn’t discuss things rationally.

          • Sam Beckett

            The internet in 2017 eh?

          • Candice

            Indeed.

          • Tiger Quinn

            That person you’re calling an asshole literally went “huh?” before you went completely psycho on them, weirdo.

        • nrkist

          I’m surprised Split was so well received. Mcavoy and the cast were generally amazing, but the reveal/linkage into Unbreakable Universe really ruins the end of the film to the point that it doesn’t stand on it’s own. A perfectly good film that’s ending is lackluster and more concerned with some impromptu scaffolding to resurrect a different movie.

        • ClarkNova4

          Since Shyamalan copied every single major idea for Split from a French flick called Dedales (from 2003, seriously watch it) he had to tack on the ending so he could “incorporate” it into the Unbreakable universe so it wouldn’t become too obvious how hard he struggles with getting ideas that don’t suck by himself. Thats why it feels out of place.

      • American Atheist

        Devil was entertaining. Split was entertaining too. I can forgive Shyamalan for the shitty movies he made (The Happening, Lady In The Water, Airbender) because he made two of my favorite movies: The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. I’m interested in seeing Glass (not smoking it :).

    • MYKEE WATTZ

      What ? Split was awesome and made me interested in this story again

      • Candice

        No one cares because I guess I need a tampon for having a different opinion than yours. Make like a dick and beat it fucko.

        • MYKEE WATTZ

          Candice you clearly have comprehension issues and you probably need more than a tamoon2 you painted pig. You are so great at running that mouth and then playing the fat unwanted victim afterwards. Go have a snack, I know you’re hungry.

          • Candice

            Now look at the insults and the level of a third grader you took it to. It’s not even clever it’s just standard and typical. Not a good look, ace. I know you are single and lonely but I hope you don’t act like this on Tinder.

          • Tiger Quinn

            Fun.

        • Tiger Quinn

          You need a tampon, but for totally different reasons.

  • Bill Semi Liar

    I only hope he sticks to one genre on this one.

  • I liked Split except that disappointing ending. Still I am quite interested to see a sequel to “Unbreakable”! That film had such an interesting premise and plot evolution

  • Johnny

    Split was FINALLY a return to form for Shyamalan. Can’t wait for Glass!
