Following last weekend, where “The Upside” over-performed and snatched the box office crown from “Aquaman,” a new film is likely to top the list this weekend. “Glass,” the latest from director M. Night Shyamalan, opens in over 3,800 theaters this weekend and looks poised to debut at #1.

Glass” is the third entry in the suddenly beloved “Unbreakable” franchise. Following in the footsteps of 2017’s “Split,” “Glass” should be able to outperform its predecessor’s $40M opening weekend. The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and James McAvoy in a film many have looked forward since the surprise ending of “Split.”

So-so reviews could dampen performance over the long weekend, but all signs point to an opening between $45-50M. That would put it in the same general area as “Split” and last year’s breakout hit “A Quiet Place.”

Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart look to keep their momentum going in the second weekend for “The Upside.” Kevin Hart’s name has continued to be in the news given his recent brief stint as the host of this year’s Oscars. The film is expected to decline by about 21% in this frame and its domestic haul should be just shy of $50M when the weekend ends.

Aquaman” continues to do respectable business over a month after its opening. It looks to push past $300M this weekend and should find itself coming in at #3. It is likely to be followed by “A Dog’s Way Home” and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” at #4 and #5, respectively.

The rest of the top ten will likely contain movies that gross right around $4-5M this weekend. Those movies include “Mary Poppins Returns,” “Escape Room,” “On the Basis of Sex,” “The Mule” and “Bumblebee.” What order those finish in is anyone’s guess, but here’s ours!
