The film stars Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Robin Wright Penn, Spencer Treat Clark, and Charlayne Woodard.

Unbreakable joins Shyamalan’s Split (2016) and Glass (2019)—both of which have been released previously on Ultra HD by Universal—thus completing the director’s Eastrail 177 Trilogy on the format. [Read on here...]

Note that Disney is also still working on 4K Ultra HD releases of Michael Mann’s Heat (1995)—a 20th Century Studios title—and Robert Zemeckis’ Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), but the street dates for both are still TBA. One or both could still be released this year, but it’s also possible that they could slip into early 2022.

We’ll post Amazon.com the pre-order link for Unbreakable as soon as it goes live.

Back with more later. Stay tuned…
