BOX OFFICE: “Glass” shatters M. Night’s recent track record — a $52 million weekend?


A big Thursday night and Friday for Universal’s complete-the-“trilogy” thriller “Glass,” which connects the “Unbreakable” characters and universe to “Split” in a way critics found…dull. Hey, it wasn’t just me. Oh no.

“Glass” did $3.7 million Thursday and another $13-14 million Friday. 

That’s going to take the long MLK Day Weekend with ease. $52 million or more by midnight Monday.

“The Upside” should pull in second place, with a healthy $16 million.

“Aquaman” will add another $11 to its $300 million+ totals.

But the midweek opening on an indefinite number of screens for “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” are bringing in the devotees of that long-established anime (TV quality) franchise. A big Wed. and Thursday suggest it could hit $16 million (since Wed.) by midnight Monday.

“Into the Spider-Verse” is about to become Sony Animation’s biggest hit, clearing $160.

Will Oscar nominations boost other top ten films like “Mary Poppins Returns” or “On the Basis of Sex?” We’ll know Tuesday AM.
