28th January 2019

With nothing of note in the way of new releases it was easy for M. Night Shyamalan Glass to stay at the top of the box office while The Kid Who Would Be King is the highest new film at 4.

The Boy Who Would Be King


Hanging on for a second week at the top is the Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy triple header which takes $19.04 million on its second weekend.

This brings the films total US gross to $79.5 million punching its way to the $100 million mark.

The Upside

With a virtually static top 5 the Kevin Heart comedy drama is at 2 this week with a $12.2 million weekend on its third outing, this brings the films total gross to $61.1 million.


Still pulling in audiences on its 6th weekend to the tune of $7.3 million is the DC monster which boosts its total US gross to $316.5 million.

The Kid Who Would Be King

Entering the box office at number 4 this week, and the only change in the top 5, is the fantasy adventure from director Joe Cornish and starring Rebecca Ferguson.

While not pulling in the audience like the studio would have liked it still manages a $7.2 million opening weekend.

Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse

The award winning animated feature takes $6.15 million on its 7th weekend boosting its US total to $169 million.
