“Glass” Aims For $65-70M Opening Weekend

Glass Ams For 65 70m Opening Wee

Unsurprisingly, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller “Glass” will dominate the domestic box office over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

Despite very average reviews for the combined “Unbreakable” and “Split” sequel, “Glass” is expected to make between $60-75 million during its first four days of release.

That’s pretty great for a film that cost a mere $20 million to produce which Shyamalan self-financed, and thus will get most of the profits himself.

“Glass” is the only wide opener this week and its only real competition is the second week of “The Upside” which is expected to score another $15 million over the four days, and no real major newcomers until “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” on February 8th.
