In its second weekend, “Glass” remained at Number One with $18.8 million. In fact, the top three films at the Box Office were the same as last weekend, with “The Upside” earning $11.9 million and “Aquaman” earning another $7.6 million. That means the newcomer “The Kid Who Would Be King” landed at Number Four earning only $7.1 million on a $59 million production budget and already setting off the reports of how much this film will eventually lose the studio. “Green Book” returned to the Top Ten, earning $5.4 million, up eight spots from last week, proving that award buzz helping box offices in no joke. The new Anne Hathaway-Matthew McConaughey thriller “Serenity” only opened to $4.4 million, but on a reported production budget of only $25 million, that number is a bit more manageable. Outside the Top Ten, Fathom Events had a few special releases land on the List, with the BTS concert documentary earning $2.8 million, sitting at Number 13, and the 80th Anniversary release of “The Wizard of Oz,” which earned $1.2 million and landed at Number 21. A surprise newcomer titled “Qué León” snuck in at Number 25, earning an average of $7,238 per 79 theaters, making it enough to win the POPCORN AWARD, which was almost taken by “Cold War,” which “Qué León” also forced off the List. Taking the GOLDEN PERCENTAGE AWARD for the second weekend in a row was “Stan & Ollie,” which had a percentage increase of +265.8% within the Top 25.

Oscar-nominated films “The Favourite” and “A Star Is Born” both saw upticks this weekend, while the rest of the List shifted down, many shifting five spots or more and “Ralph Breaks The Internet” coming within one spot of earning a BOMB. One of the biggest drops of the week was “Replicas” falling -92.2% and disappearing from the List. Oscar hopefuls in documentary and makeup/hairstyling, respectively, “Free Solo” and “Mary Queen Of Scots” fell from the List as well, joining the Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy “Second Act.”

There is a strong possibility that “Glass” will three-peat next weekend, facing yet another quiet weekend with almost no competition. “Miss Bala” is the widest new release for the weekend yet it faces a projected opening of $7.5 million, which is likely only good enough for second place, unless “Glass” begins a large decrease or “Miss Bala” decides to overperform. Since the Fathom Events releases on the List this week are normally limited engagements, that should open up a few more spots for films that fell off the List to reemerge, like “Cold War,” which was barely bumped off and “Free Solo,” which is still grabbing a lot of eyes for being Oscar-nominated. I would not expect very much to fall off the List because of that fact, except for probably “Qué León,” which snuck on in the first place, and possibly “Uri: The Surgical Strike,” which I have been predicting to fall off for the past two weeks.
