As expected, M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” took the crown over the weekend, but earning much less than predicted, grabbing only $40.3 million, while its sights had been set on $50 million or more. However, with an average of $10,500 per 3,841 theaters, “Glass” was also able to nab the POPCORN AWARD for the weekend. Last weekend’s winner, “The Upside,” earned only $15 million in its second weekend while “Aquaman,” with $10.1 million, was able to beat out newcomer “Dragon Ball Super: Broly,” which earned $9.8 million. Two films earned ROCKETS this weekend, both of which were not on the List last weekend, including “Cold War,” which landed at Number 24, jumping ten spots in its fifth weekend, and “Stan & Ollie,” which not only jumped twelve spots but won the GOLDEN PERCENTAGE AWARD with an increase of +296.6%.

Other increases include “Ralph Breaks The Internet” and “Green Book” jumping up one spot each and the foreign film “Uri: The Surgical Strike” jumping four in its second weekend. Falling faster than most were “Vice” and “Free Solo,” both dropping five spots while “Replicas,” in its second weekend, was close to a BOMB, dropping eight spots. Falling off the List completely were the foreign films “Simmba” and “Perfect Strangers,” while the Julia Roberts led drama “Ben Is Back” also fell off the List in its seventh weekend, dropping ten spots and earning itself a BOMB off the List. Earning a BOMB last weekend, “Holmes & Watson” also earned another off the List this weekend, falling thirteen spots, off the List and closing out well below its production budget. With a decrease of -83.6%, that was the biggest drop of the weekend overall.

Aiming for somewhere above a $20 million second weekend, “Glass” should be able to hang on to the Number Two spot. Battling it out with “The Upside” for second place will be the new young adult adventure “The King Who Would Be King,” which is already getting positive reviews, aiming for a debut of $10 million. Looking to land somewhere in the Top Ten next weekend will be the Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway film “Serenity,” which is looking for a $5.5 million opening. With the Oscar nominations out Tuesday, expect the nominees to get a bump, especially if they are re-released in theaters. Films like “Vice,” “Green Book,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and “A Star Is Born” should be sticking around for the next month and then some if they end up winning Oscars. Expect “Replicas” to meet its demise next weekend, in only its third weekend. And unless “Free Solo” ends up sticking around for the Oscars, it might not be able to hold on to its Number 25 spot next weekend. I also feel that “Uri: The Surgical Strike” is already overstaying its welcome.
