Box Office Recap – 01/28/2019


M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass topped the box office once again, adding $19 million to its coffers in its second week of release. All told, Glass has raked in $73.5 million domestically.

Serenity and The Kid Who Would Be King, meanwhile, bombed. Working Title and 20th Century Fox’s The Kid nabbed a paltry $7 million in wide release; it cost $60 million to make pre-marketing. The family-friendly film earned positive reviews, but clearly failed to connect with audiences. 

Serenity, a neo-noir thriller starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, fared even worse, with just $4.8 million to show.  The reviews were brutal, and Serenity currently hovers around 22% on Rotten Tomatoes, and boasts a D+ CinemaScore. 

The Upside managed to grab second place, bringing in $12.24.
