Glass tops North American box office for a second week as Matthew McConaughey's new film flops

Serenity is the worst debut for both McConaughey and Anne Hathaway.

Thriller Glass has scored a second week at the top of the U.S box office with an estimated weekend haul of $18.5 million (£14 million).

M. Night Shyamalan's new movie, which brings back his characters from Unbreakable and Split for a final movie, has not snagged over $73 million (£55.3 million) for a 10-day total.

The Upside, Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart's remake of French film The Intouchables, hangs onto the number two spot, while blockbuster Aquaman lands at three, becoming the biggest-grossing Warner Bros. superhero movie globally in the process.

James Wan's film, starring Jason Momoa, has now passed The Dark Knight Rises as the studio's top-grossing film featuring a DC Comics superhero. Aquaman has sailed past $1.3 billion worldwide, making Wan, who is already on board for a sequel, the only filmmaker who has delivered a billion dollar blockbuster for two different studios - his Furious 7 raced past $1.5 billion for Universal in 2016.

20th Century Fox’s new family film The Kid Who Would Be King and Spider-Man:Into the Spider Verse complete the top five, while Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway's new release, Serenity, is notable for all the wrong reasons, becoming the worst debut for both its stars.

The film, which has split critics, limped in to the new top 10 at eight with just $4.4 million (£3.3 million).

Directed by Steven Knight, the film was made for a budget of $59 million (£44.7 million).

Meanwhile, Green Book is the leading Oscar nominated film at this week's box office - the first since the Academy Awards nominations were announced on Tuesday (22Jan19).

Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen's drama is the only nominated picture in the top 10, scoring a $5.3 million (£4 million) haul in its 11th week on release.
