The Box Office Delivers Its Worst Super Bowl Weekend In Nearly Two Decades

Description

The last time the number one movie at the box office earned less than $10 million was when the faith-based film War Room managed the top spot in its second weekend over the Labor Day weekend in 2015. Before that, it was The Possession over Labor Day weekend in 2012. This time, it is M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, which mustered only $9.5 million this Super Bowl weekend. That’s an OK number for the film’s third weekend at the box office (dropping only 44 percent, and bringing its total to $88 million), but it’s a dismal number for a number one film at the box office (that said, it has risen to $110 million overseas).
