Glass just pulled a hat trick at the box office.
The film earned $2.7 million on Friday on its way to a $9.5 million take over another uneventful box office weekend. The film's total now stand at $88.6 million.
Glass is the sequel to Shyamalan’s Unbreakable and Split. The film sees Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson reprising their roles from Unbreakable with James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy returning to their roles from Split. The film has taken a beating from critics, but it seems the allure of Shyamalan’s mysterious and low-key superhero universe is enough to draw in fans for the trilogy’s conclusion.
Aquaman remains in fourth place, earning another $4.7 million and bringing its domestic box office total to $323.5 million and surpassing Iron Man.
Aquaman is directed by James Wan and stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, the half-human prince of Atlantis he first played in Justice League (after a silent cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). Aquaman must return to Atlantis to stop his half-brother from leading the underwater kingdoms into open warfare against the surface.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse remains in fifth place this weekend with $4.4 million. The film's total now stands at $175.3 million.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the first Spider-Man movie to focus on Miles Morales. Miles learns that there is an entire multiverse of spider-themed heroes like himself, including the Peter Parker of another timeline.
Joe Cornish's The Kid Who Would Be King falls to seventh place in its second weekend. The kid-oriented take on Arthurian legend earned $1 million on Friday and $4.4 million over the weekend.
