While it is stated on the cover as “Ultimate Collector’s Edition”, there are no details as to what extra stuff and special features Unbreakable 4K Blu-ray will come with. Regardless, here is hoping that Disney will do a much better job on the extra stuff than what they did in the Unbreakable Blu-ray release of 2008. As such, I recommend you readers and movie buffs to return to Blu-ray.com and the product’s Amazon.com page for updates for Unbreakable 4K Blu-ray.
I first saw Unbreakable in the cinema back in late-2000. While it was slow-paced, Schyamalan managed to deliver a solid payoff which justified all the build-up and waiting. I also remember the movie having several references to superhero culture and comic book culture. Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson were indeed solid as opposite (as opposed to opposition) figures David Dunn and Mr. Glass. If you are tired of seeing Samuel L. Jackson playing Nick Fury, his role as Mr. Glass will be refreshing to see.
The movie grossed almost $250 million in movie tickets worldwide. Back then, nobody anticipated Unbreakable would someday spawn a sequel or grow into an entertainment franchise. I myself saw it as a conclusive standalone movie back in 2000. As such, I got really surprised learning about Split (2016) and Glass (2019) being sequels to it.
In ending this, posted below is Unbreakable’s trailer from 2000.
