With the Big Game looming over the weekend, studios steered clear as M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” landed its third weekend atop the Box Office throne with $9.5 million. “The Upside” was also able to hold on to its second place spot with $8.6 million. “Miss Bala” missed its projected debut of $7.5 million and landed at $6.8 million instead. The rest of the Top Ten mainly stayed with the same titles as last weekend, except Peter Jackson’s WWI documentary “They Shall Not Grow Old” was able to land the tenth spot with $2.4 million and an average of $3,318 in 735 theaters, making it enough to earn the POPCORN AWARD. The GOLDEN PERCENTAGE AWARD went to “Free Solo,” which returned to the List this weekend, earning $1.2 million and jumping up twelve spots from the previous weekend.

“Cold War,” benefiting from its Academy Award nominations, resurfaced on the List as well, coming it at Number 25. None of the films from last weekend’s List moved up yet eight films stayed put at there position from last weekend. In its second weekend, “Serenity” fell six spots to Number 14 while “Dragon Ball Super: Broly,” which has become the highest grossing “Dragon Ball” film, fell eight spots to Number 19. Falling off the List completely, as expected, were the two Fathom Events films, the BTS concert documentary and the re-release of “The Wizard Of Oz.” Also falling off were the two predicted foreign language films “Qué León” and “Uri: The Surgical Strike.” Lastly, Oscar hopeful “If Beale Street Could Talk” fell off the List after eight weeks.

Next weekend will provide a much-needed boost in the Box Office, as “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” looks to dominate theaters across the country. A $55 million projected opening weekend will easily make it Number One, finally dethroning “Glass” after three weeks. The Taraji P. Henson comedy “What Men Want” looks to earn $24 million, looking to make it Number Two. We will see if the current Liam Neeson backlash will be enough to keep people seeing “Cold Pursuit” in the theaters, as it originally looked to nail down a $12 million debut and a third-place finish, which could be in question now. Battling “Glass” for fourth place will likely be the new horror film starring Taylor Schilling, “The Prodigy,” which is hoping for a debut $5.7 million. Making way for the newcomers, expect “Cold War” to have a short reemergence on the List, falling off again next weekend. Also, a surprise debut of “Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga” on the List will be short-lived as the film will likely be gone by next weekend. And expect with “Stan & Ollie” to follow off in natural succession or wait to see if “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” finishes its downfall right off the List.
