There are two kinds of people — those who love Unbreakable … and everybody else. I’m referring, of course, to M. Night Shyamalan’s second movie. The one that largely got panned for not having a twist ending as cool as his first movie. Which, don’t get me wrong, I really liked The Sixth Sense. I saw it twice — once to be shocked by the ending, then a second time to go back and figure out how I hadn’t seen it coming. But Unbreakable I’ve probably watched a dozen times now, and every time I get to the end, I say the same thing: “I really wish M. Night would make the sequel already.”
Turns out my wish may come true!
I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the movie was always intended to be the first in a trilogy. This means that if he does make a sequel, it will be something he’s already put thought into, something that the first movie was intended to mesh with, and not just an add-on for the sake of itself.
