“Glass” Cracks, “Dragonball” Soars At Box-Office

Glass Cracks Dragonball Soars At Box Office

M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” is not unexpectedly going to top the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend in the United States, the film collecting $40 million over the regular Friday-Sunday and headed for a four-day holiday total of $47 million.

That would be the third-best showing for both January and MLK holiday weekend, and while a stellar result it still comes in a little under expectations – bad word of mouth from the poor critical reviews may have had an impact. Internationally the film pulled in a further $48.5 million.

“The Upside” will come in second with $19.5 million for the four-day, but the real surprise story of the weekend is “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” which could well beat “Aquaman” and come in third. The anime release snagged a $7 million debut on Wednesday and is expected to bring in around $10 million over the four-day holiday for a domestic total of $20 million. The film has already nabbed around $50 million internationally.

“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and “A Dog’s Way Home” are expected to score around $9 million each for the four day.
