Glass may currently be a critical dud, but there is no denying the fact that this is a film that, for hardcore geeks, has been in the making for many years. And for those who are more in the mainstream, we’re still talking about a sequel to one of the biggest, unexpected hits in recent years with Split. But just how much money will this make?
According to THR, tracking is showing this Martin Luther King Jr. weekend will see the film hit $60 million to $70 million. Should it hit these numbers, it will be the second-highest-performing film of the weekend, only falling behind American Sniper, which took in an enviable $107.2 million in its opening weekend.
Admittedly, this is a bit hard to compare to split, as the film broke $40 million domestically in its opening weekend, which came following MLK back in 2017. So this is a boost that is certainly doing some real favors for the film. Though given this movie has a $20 million budget, it seems possible it’ll be making a profit in its opening weekend, which is fantastic no matter which way you slice it.

More than anything, I’m curious to see how audiences will react to this. Our own LRM critic Fox Troilo actually enjoyed the film quite a bit and while he is often at odds with most mainstream critics, his tastes do often line up with a lot of fans. What CinemaScore will this movie get, and if it’s good enough, will it allow the film to exceed expectations through positive word of mouth?
