The Movie: A superhero thriller directed by M Night Shyamalan. Bruce Willis plays the man who’s never been ill – and is the sole survivor of a train crash.
The Sequel: Willis was hopeful for a trilogy, though Shyamalan denied ever envisioning Unbreakable as the first in a series.
After coming up with an idea for the sequel, Shyamalan ended up using the proposed sequel’s villain in an as-yet-unnamed film he’s producing.
Sorry, Unbreakable 2.
Why It Should Have Happened: Unbreakable is an under-loved gem.
Tonally perfect and a film that took superheroes seriously before Singer came along with X-Men.
