Box Office Report for January 18-20


Welcome back to the weekly box office report! Each Sunday, expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, Glass entered the marketplace, along with a specialty release or two. How did they do? Let us take a look right now…

The top spot this weekend went to, unsurprisingly, Glass. The first event film of 2019 took in a haul of $40.5 million, doubling its budget. At the same time, projections had it potentially opening with another $10 million or so, meaning that perhaps the poor critical reviews had an impact on M. Night Shyamalan’s latest. Word of mouth may keep this one from holding too well in the weeks to come, but we shall see. Next week may be a whole other story. For now though, it’s the box office champ today.

Coming in at number two was last week’s winner, The Upside. A very strong hold meant another $15.6 million into its coffers. Without question, this is a surprise hit. A few months ago, it was thought to have been dumped into January, a victim of The Weinstein Company coming to an end. Now, it’s a success story for STX. At number four, Aquaman made another $10.4 million, crossing the $300 million mark domestically.

Other new releases included the anime outing Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which really shocked everyone when it opened in the third spot. Hauling in $10.6 million this weekend, it actually opened earlier in the week, making its total opening cume an even bigger $21 million and change. A specialty release, it definitely exceeded expectations, that’s for sure.

Among indie debuts, the only notable release with a reported number was An Acceptable Loss. Opening in one location at the IFC Center, it took in $5,103. Make of that what you will, but poor reviews and low awareness certainly didn’t help.
