Glass scores third week atop North American box office chart

Below-freezing temperatures make for a slow Super Bowl weekend.

Thriller Glass has made it three weeks as the number one movie in North America.

The M. Night Shyamalan movie, which brings together characters from his previous films Unbreakable and Split, picked up another $9.5 million (£7.3 million) in its third weekend on release to hold on to the box office title during the slow Super Bowl weekend (01-03Feb19), which was likely further impacted by the polar vortex sweeping across the U.S.

Glass, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, and James McAvoy, has now made $88 million (£67.3 million) to date from the North American market, and its latest haul was enough to keep its lead against its closest competitor, The Upside.

The Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart comedy drama earns a solid $8.8 million (£6.7 million), four weeks after its launch, forcing Gina Rodriguez's new action thriller, Miss Bala, to settle for a third-place debut with $6.7 million (£5.1 million).

The film centres on a young woman who takes on the bosses of a Mexican drug cartel to save her kidnapped friend, and is based on the 2011 Mexican movie of the same name.

Aquaman is still proving popular with fans six weeks after its release, taking fourth place with $4.7 million (£3.6 million), boosting its total gross in North America to $323.5 million (£247.4 million), for a total of $1.1 billion worldwide, and climbing.

Rounding out the new top five is animated adventure Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is now Sony Pictures' highest-grossing animated movie after banking $175 million (£133.8 million) in the three months since its debut.
