M Night Shyamalan Has Been A Motion Picture Punching Bag Of Late
His Recent Output Has Not Been Well Received
Entitled Unbreakable, it didn’t exactly break the bank at the box office, but over time, it’s become one of the most beloved titles in M. Night Shyamalan’s otherwise tenuous filmography and with an ending that established the champion/villain dynamic perfectly, many wondered if we’d ever see David Dunn and Elijah Price ever again.

Well, for those who want to avoid SPOILERS, move along. Otherwise, here goes. Turns out that the main character Kevin in Split, played by James McAvoy, has an unusual body chemistry associated with each of his 23 personalities. When a 24th appears, known as the Beast, his rampage sparks stories of a connection to Ira Glass and David Dunn.
