This past week, both Dragon Ball Super: Broly and Glass released in theaters, and while the two of them have literally nothing else in common, it's interesting to compare the box office for the two of them. On opening day, Broly absolutely smashed Glass.
Now, some caveats: Dragon Ball Super: Broly is more like an event showing, with few screenings ultimately planned in the United States. Glass, on the other hand, is a more traditional film despite being an M. Night Shyamalan horror/superhero flick. The latter will inevitably see more screens overall, and if fans miss the first ones, there's going to be more to attend going forward.
With all that said, the facts are the facts: Dragon Ball Super: Broly made $7.06 million box office gross on its first day, and Glass made $3.7 million box office gross on its first day. Ultimately, Glass is expected to have a bigger opening weekend, but if we're just comparing the respective first days for the films, Broly did incredibly well.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly is open in theaters worldwide. Funimation brought the latter film to the United States on January 16th, and tickets for both are now on sale. You can read ComicBook.com's spoiler-free review of Dragon Ball Super: Broly here, and ComicBook.com's review of Glass here.
