The ‘UNBREAKABLE’ Trilogy
'Glass' starring Sam Jackson, James McAvoy and Bruce Willis is now playing in theaters but a lot of people don't realize that its part of a trilogy! 'Glass' is the third installment in the 'Unbreakable' series created by M. Night Shyamalan showcasing the emergence of the first superhero (Willis) and his first arch enemy (Jackson).
If you haven't seen the first two movies in the series, 'Unbreakable' and 'Split', I suggest you catch those on Netflix or something before going to see 'Glass'. I think it will give you a better understanding of the background stories of the characters even though the movie 'GLASS' does give SOME perspective on their origins and how they actually connect to each other.
Sam Jackson plays a character named Elijah Price, who was born with a condition that makes his bones extremely brittle. He had broken so many bones, that kids started teasing him and dubbed him "Mr. Glass". But being confined in a broken body only made his intellect skyrocket to the point that he began to think that he was the only 'abnormal' person on earth. That is until he hears about a guy (Willis) who was the only survivor of a massive train wreck, that has never been injured or even been sick in his life.
Elsewhere rumors are spreading about a guy that supposedly has over 20 distinct personalities sharing one body, including one that has been called 'The Beast' that is reminiscent of 'Sabertooth' from the X-men comics.
'Glass' is a pretty good movie on its own but if you want to know the WHOLE story, watching Unbreakable and Split are a must!
