Glass easily repeats as the box office champion


M. Night Shyamalan remains at the top of the box office as Glass had no problem remaining box office champion for the second straight weekend.

Glass brought in $19 million during its second weekend and only dropped 53 percent. The film stands right under $74 million domestically and the film brought in $23.6 million internationally as the worldwide gross for the film stands at $162.7 million.

Glass is around $22 million behind the domestic gross of Unbreakable and has a good way to go if it wants to pass the domestic gross of 2017’s Split.

The Upside remains in second place with $12.2 million and has crossed $60 million domestically. The film only dropped 18 percent during its third weekend as this film is continuing its strong box office run.

Aquaman remained in third place with $7.4 million and has crossed $315 million domestically. The film crossed $1.09 billion at the worldwide box office which makes this film the largest DC Comics Adaptation of all-time and it is also the 25th largest worldwide release of all-time. It only trails Suicide Squad by $9 million at the domestic box office.

The Kid Who Would be King opened in fourth place with $7.3 million. The film has been receiving good reviews but I’m not expecting this film to remain in the top five after this weekend.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse rounds out the top five with $6.2 million as it is approaching $170 million domestically. This week it should pass Hotel Transylvania 2 to become the highest grossing domestic release for Sony Animation. The film is also approaching $340 million at the worldwide box office.

Green Book jumped up eight spots rising from fourteenth all the way up to sixth place after Oscar nominations were announced and the film expanded into a wide release. The film brought in $5.4 million and is approaching $50 million domestically. This film is my pick to win several awards at the Oscars this year.

The other new wide release Serenity opened in eighth place with $4.8 million. I expect this to be the only week this film will be inside the top ten as reviews have been poor for this film and it doesn’t look like the film is going to find a solid audience.

A Dog’s Way Home ($5.2 million), Escape Room ($4.3 million) and Dragon Ball Super: Broly round out the rest of the top ten this weekend. The Mule finally broke $100 million at the domestic box office while Bohemian Rhapsody crossed $205 million domestically and is close to passing A Star is Born.

Glass has potential to win the box office for a third straight weekend with only one new wide release coming out. It is Sony’s remake of Miss Bala starring Gina Rodriguez and Anthony Mackie.
