HOLLYWOOD—Well, I’m not surprised this flick reigned supreme at the box-office, but I am slightly wowed that the film did not perform as big as expected. “Glass” catapulted itself to the top spot of the box-office with $47.1 million during the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. The final installment in the trilogy (“Unbreakable” and “Split”) earned $40 million Friday-Sunday. The film fell below expectations where it was predicted to earn over $60 million during its opening weekend.
Last week’s box-office champ, “The Upside” fell to second place with $19.5 million. After 2 weeks in theaters, the dramedy has earned over $50 million at the domestic box-office. Landing in third place was the “Aquaman” with $12.1 million. The DC superhero has now crossed the $300 million mark at the domestic box-office since its release on December 21.
Debuting in fourth place was the animated flick “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” with an impressive $20 million since its release on January 16. The animated feature opened to $7 million on its first day in theaters. Rounding out the top five was the animated feature “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” with slightly over $9 million. The movie has since earned over $160 million at the domestic box-office.
This weekend sees the release of the delayed thriller “Serenity” starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway and the family flick “The Kid Who Would Be King.” My money is placed on “Glass” remaining in the top spot, but the word-of-mouth buzz for the thriller is not as strong.
