M. Night Shyamalan
Bryce Dallas Howard,
Actor Bruce Willis and writer/director M. Night Shyamalan reunite after the surprise success of The Sixth Sense for this supernatural thriller. David Dunn (Willis) is taking a train from New York City back home to Philadelphia after a job interview that didn't go well when his car jumps the tracks and collides with an oncoming engine, with David the only survivor among the 131 passengers on board. Astoundingly, David is not only alive, he hardly seems to have been touched. As David wonders what has happened to him and why he was able to walk away, he encounters a mysterious stranger, Elijah Prince (Samuel L. Jackson), who explains to David that there are a certain number of people who are "unbreakable" -- they have remarkable endurance and courage, a predisposition toward dangerous behavior, and feel invincible but also have strange premonitions of terrible events. Is David "unbreakable"? And if he is, what are the physical and psychological ramifications of this knowledge?
When Mr. Glass gets his first comic book on the playground bench in 1974, the cover of the book depicts as a backdrop the Philadelphia skyline, featuring predominantly Two Liberty Place, which was not built until 1990. See more »
And, to answer your question, there are two reasons why I'm looking at you like this. One because it seems in a few minutes you will officially be the only survivor of this train wreck, and two, because you didn't break one bone, you don't have a scratch on you.

Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) was born with a rare disease that makes him very susceptible to bone fractures. To motivate him to not be afraid to go outdoors in fear of breaking a bone, his mother rewards Elijah with comic books when he does. As an adult he lives alone and becomes a comic book art dealer.
David Dunn (Bruce Willis) gave up a promising football career after a car accident he wasn't even injured in. He marries, has a son and works as a security guard. He begins to question his purpose in life after being the only person out of 131 people to survive a train accident. And then he meets Elijah.
This is a good vs. evil in the classic sense, and yes, there is a superhero, but not like you'd read about in the comics.
