M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” is maintaining its hold on audiences, remaining the #1 film at the box office in its second week of release.
As Box Office Mojo reports, the third instalment of the director’s “three-quel” (which began with 2000’s “Unbreakable” and continued with 2016’s “Split”) brought in $19 million at the domestic box office in its second weekend.
Despite mixed reviews, “Glass” can boast a two-week domestic total of $73.5 million, and a global tally to date of $162.7 million.
Meanwhile, news was not good for two new films that premiered on the weekend, the Matthew McConaughey-Anne Hathaway thriller “Serenity” and the family-friendly “The Kid Who Would Be King”, both of which delivered underwhelming showings at the box office. According to Variety, “Serenity” is on track to bring in between $5 million and $6 million in its opening weekend, while “King” should bring in just over $7 million.
“The Upside,” starring Hart and Bryan Cranston, continues to show strength in its third week, hanging onto the second place spot it staked out last weekend, adding an additional $12.2 million in its third week.
Rounding out the weekend’s top five are “Aquaman” in third place with $7.4 million (increasing its domestic total to $315 million in its sixth weekend), “The Kid Who Would Be King” at #4 and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” at fifth, with an additional $6.2 million in its seventh week for a domestic total of $169 million.
