“Glass” from director M. Night Shyamalan will beat out all other movies for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the sequel to “Split” and “Unbreakable” will sell about $47.1 million in ticket sales at the 3,841 theatres throughout North America.
The superhero-themed movie will also come in third for an MLK opening weekend behind “American Sniper” in 2015 ($107.2 million) and “Ride Along” in 2014 ($48.6 million).
Despite claiming the top spot for the weekend, “Glass” is underperforming from the predicted sales of $55 million over the four days.
Rounding off second place is “The Upside” starring Kevin Hary and Bryan Cranston. It came to theatres last week but still held strong bringing in an estimated $19.5 over the weekend.
Finishing off the top four is “Dragon Ball Super: Broly”. Despite only being shown in 1,250 theatres at the moment, the film comes in with a healthy $9.7 million from Friday to Monday.
