M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable/Split sequel, Glass looks set to score some serious cash when it opens on 18 January 2019.
Deadline is reporting the Bruce Willis/Samuel L. Jackson/James McAvoy thriller could bank up to $75 million over the Martin Luther King Jr. four-day holiday weekend. That’s a cracking start for the film, which cost a reported $20 million.
The number would make it the second biggest opening ever for that timeframe, behind Clint Ewastwood’s American Sniper which opened to $107 million in 2015.
To put these numbers into perspective…
Unbreakable banked $30 million during its first weekend in 2000, grossing $95 million in the US and $248 million globally. Split grossed $30 million on its US debut, totally $138 million across its US run and a little over $278 worldwide.
