‘Glass’ Fills Up with $40.58M Debut While ‘Dragon Ball’ Delivers Top Five Opening

Universal and Blumhouse’s Glass was unable to quite reach the lofty heights some had expected heading into the weekend, but the film still managed a solid #1 start, playing very similarly to its predecessor based on current estimates.

Glass, however, might not be the biggest news of the weekend when you consider the monster debut of FUNimation’s Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which is looking at a possible third place finish based on early estimates, but it’s important to note current results are not from the film’s domestic distributor, FUNimation.

Elsewhere, Stx’s The Upside delivered on expectations with a strong second weekend while WB’s Aquaman topped $300 million domestically.

With an estimated $40.58 million over the three-day weekend, Universal anticipates M.
