News // 'GLASS' ENJOYS A SECOND WEEKEND AT NUMBER ONE

Serenity and The Kid Who Would be King struggle.



With an additional $19 million, Universal's Glass (#1) remained at the top of the weekend box office for its second weekend. With numbers like that, the quasi-sequel to Unbreakable and Split is on course to become 2019's first film to cross $100 million.


In its third weekend, The Upside (#2) continued its impressive, slow-burning run wirth another $12.2 million for a total of $63 million, so far.


Newcomers The Kid Who Would be King (#4) and Serenity (#8) failed to make much of a start. The former finished the weekend with $7.5 million, a struggle compared to its $59 million budget. The latter bombed with just $4.8 million in its debut and poor reviews. It's CinemaScore of D+ is a sign it will flounder going forward.


With the Oscar nominations announced this past week, many of the top contender saw box office boosts. Green Book (#6) saw the highest uptick. The controversial, but inspirational, film earned enough to re-enter the Top Ten. The Favourite (#13) saw an increase of 214%.


Leaving the Top Ten this week are Mary Poppins Returns (#11), Bumblebee (#12), and On the Basis of Sex (#15).


Next week, Sony's Miss Bala will open wide, while Ek Ladki Ko Dekah Toh Aisa Laga and Arctic see limited releases.
