It's still some weeks away from the liberation, but early Glass tracking office tracking indicates M. Night ShyamalanClimbing back to the top holds strong. The excitement, which serves as a sequel to both unbreakable and Share, expected to draw in around $ 50 million when it opens on January 18, kicking off the MLK weekend. If this turns out to be accurate, it would give Glass the second largest MLK weekend opening ever.
I'm very happy with M. Night Shyamalan. The filmmaker had great criticism and checkout success early in his career, but when his filmography expanded, the prizes were reduced. Soon, the director came to a point where the studios were afraid to even announce his names of followers (as was the case with After the Earth, Will Smith directed the sci-fi movie Shyamalan 2013). But now Shyamalan is back on top. His scary old people found recordings The visit was a fun surprise and his follow-up Share raked in an impressive $ 278.4 million worldwide on a $ 9 million budget.
Early Glass box office tracking confirms that this is not fluke: M. Night is back, baby. The deadline says the filmmaker's upcoming thriller is on track to earn $ 50 million in the opening weekend. If true, it will give Glass the second best MLK weekend opening ever, behind Clint Eastwoods American sniper (which opened with $ 107 million). Here are some more details, per the Deadline article:
Totally unknown attention for Glass –the survey category where those who are polled take up the movie's title without being asked – is higher than Blumhouse / Universal's Get out and Share. First choice for Glass is higher than Conjuring 2, The Nun, Get Out and just below it off Logan. In total consciousness, Glass is strong across the board with men and women.
I've been a shyamalan fan over the years. Hell, I enjoy myself The event at some weird levels. So it warms my heart to see him back on top of the cashier's office again. And I'm very excited Glass, who will complete a story, began back in 2000 with unbreakable.
IN Glass, real-life superhero David Dunn (Bruce Willis) is locked up in the same mental asylum as his old friend / arch-nemesis, Elijah Price, aka Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson). Also inside: Kevin Wendell Crumb, the man with several personalities first introduced in Share. There is still a lot we do not know about GlassBut from the look of things, Elijah plans to manipulate Kevin to help him with some false mission and only David can stop them. But the three are also cared for by a psychiatrist (played by Sarah Paulson), trying to convince them that they are all mentally ill and not in possession of superpowers.
Glass opens January 18, 2019.
