Glass' Second Box Office Weekend Sees Significant Drop Compared To Split

M. Night Shyamalan's Glass, the crossover sequel to Unbreakable and Split, has taken the top spot at the domestic box office for the second weekend in a row but without the same staying power as its 2016 predecessor.

The post-modern superhero film is on track to earn $16.6 million its second weekend, bringing its domestic box office total to $71.1 million. That's a 59 percent drop from its opening weekend which had opened well below initial industry analysts' predictions.

The second weekend drop also puts Glass behind Split's second weekend by 9 percent; the earlier film had earned $25.6 million its second weekend after its opening weekend of $40.2 million. The Shyamalan-directed thriller ended its domestic theatrical run in 2017 with a total of $138.2 million and $278.5 million worldwide.

With a reported production budget of $20 million, significant increase over Split's $9 budget, Glass is not expected to top Split's earnings now though it has earned $113.5 million worldwide.
