GLASS Storming To $48M-$50M Opening Weekend; DRAGON BALL SUPER: BROLY Gets Off To An Impressive Start

Universal's Glass will fall just short of early expectations with an estimated $48 million to $50 million haul over the four-day holiday weekend. Meanwhile, Dragon Ball Super: Broly continues to impress.

M. Night Shyamalan's magnum opus, Glass, is roaring to the top of the domestic box office with an estimated $48 million over the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, which is a franchise-best debut and the second-best launch ever for a film over MLK weekend.

The film reportedly carried an estimated $20 million production budget (without P&A), so despite an unfavorable critical response, Glass is already a massive hit for both Shyamalan and Universal and with little-to-no competition until Marvel's Captain Marvel hits theaters in early March, the trilogy capper should have a pretty good run through the end of January and into February. 

While Universal had remained conservative with their estimates, projecting a $50 million to $55 million launch, rival studios and early tracking numbers were a little more bullish, suggesting the film's debut could potentially land somewhere in the $60 million to $70 million range. 

Elsewhere, Funimation's Dragon Ball Super: Broly got off to an incredibly impressive start on Wednesday, finishing #1 for the day with $7 million. It's expected to bring in another $10 million or so this holiday weekend, which will bring its five-day total to $20 million plus, the best showing ever for a Dragon Ball title in the United States. Overall, the megahit has already collected nearly $70 million worldwide, including $32 million from Japan.

M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass.

Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
