Alita: Battle Angel topped the box office for the holiday weekend and exceeded expectations but overall this past weekend was the worst President’s Day weekend of the last 15 years.
The Lego Movie 2 took the top spot at the box office but it was well below studio expectations and the opening of the first Lego Movie while the other new releases, besides The Prodigy, met their studio’s expectations.
With the Super Bowl and only one new wide release this weekend, it was the worst performing weekend since September 2017, with Glass remaining on top for the third week in a row.
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris, and Joe talk the 2019 Oscar nominations, Umbrella Academy, Unsolved Mysteries, Resident Evil, Glass, The Punisher and much more.
The third entry in what’s now a trilogy, Glass brings together the characters of Unbreakable and Split as David Dunn, Mr. Glass, and Kevin Wendell Crumb find themselves in a mental asylum run by Dr. Staple, who tries to convince the trio they do not have superpowers but are simply suffering from a mental delusion.
Although it didn’t quite meet the studio’s predictions, Glass took the top spot at the box office with M. Night’s third-best opening of all time and, surprisingly, the best ever opening for Bruce Willis.
The only wide release this weekend is the long-anticipated Unbreakable/Split cross-over, Glass, but the critical response has not been great.
2019 kicks off, as usual, with horror with Escape Room, Keanu trying to clone his family in Replicas and the highly anticipated Unbreakable/Split crossover, Glass, along with a bunch of other movies.
