Maybe it’s only appropriate that Glass finished victorious for a third-straight weekend. Windows are made of the stuff, after all, and Glass showed once again that it knows how to … win dough.
Not that it won that much in the grand scheme of things on this quiet Super Bowl weekend at the multiplex. The overall box office was the weakest since September 2017, according to Box Office Mojo, with not a single film even cracking the $10 million mark. Indeed, if Glass took its estimated $9.5 million and hopped on a time machine to the not-so-distant past—say, the weekend of Dec. 21—the film would’ve been locked in a dead heat for fifth place. And despite Glass’s impressive winning streak, it still has yet to crack the $100 million mark for its domestic run. M. Night Shyamalan’s oddish superhero story now stands at about 88.7 million.
The Upside landed in second place for the third consecutive week as well, bringing in about $8.9 million. The comedy’s performance helped squelch any optimism there might’ve been for the weekend’s sole newcomer, the PG-13 Miss Bala. Gina Rodriguez’s thriller snuck into third with a mere $6.7 million.
Two superhero movies, Aquaman and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, landed in fourth and fifth place, respectively. Aquaman squeezed out another $4.8 million in liquid assets, pushing its domestic total to $323.6 million. (Its international cume is now a trident-dropping $1.1 billion, and it still has yet to open in Japan.) Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse also added to its already healthy bottom line, too. Still in the top five after eight weeks, the animated flick webbed another $4.4 million, bringing its overall gross to $175.3 million.
