Just finished watching Split. Wow. Glass is going to be off the chain. Will likely be seeing Glass on opening night.

The sad thing is, I may never have watched Split if I didn't already know it tied into Unbreakable and had the ending slightly spoiled for me. It didn't ruin my enjoyment of the movie. However, had I just randomly caught the movie without that knowledge, the last scene would blown my freakin' mind.

Split fell through the cracks with me. For some reason, somehow, I unintentionally was fully in-spoilered when I rented that movie. Had NO idea it was connected to Unbreakable. That end scene with Willis happened and I freaked out. Can't wait for this movie.

Does anyone know if a trilogy was always planned for this or did the success of Unbreakable make it happen?

Was Unbreakable really a success at the box office? I could be wrong, but I seem to remember it being considered a bit of a bomb. I think the current success of comic book/super hero movies has made this possible.

I remember M. Night saying something about the Split character originally being in Unbreakable but he felt it would have been too crowded with two villains and he didn't want to short the character. Unfortunately, like Torgo said, the movie didn't do well enough to make a sequel. So now that he's had a bit of a resurgence he was able to use the character and make Split which did really well opening the door for Glass.

thoughts?

i strongly, strongly suggest if anything, watch split first. you really should be familiar with unbreakable too.

i enjoyed it, but without knowing the backstory, i would have been lost like helen keller dropped in the middle of the sahara.

I just saw it this afternoon.

M. Night Shyamalan isn’t getting another dollar from me.

The ending was highly disappointing.
I disagree...but I have a feeling that will be a trend....This is going to be a love/hate thing.

Personally, I really enjoyed the movie...the whole "are they superheroes, or are they normal people with mental conditions that make them think they are special" is a great discussion to have in a movie that is based on a realistic depiction of someone being told that they are a superhero.
