‘Glass’ Wins An Incredibly Weak Weekend Box Office as ‘Serenity’ Bombs

The good news for M. Night Shyamalan is that Glass finished in first place for the second week in a row, earning an estimated $19 million.  The bad news is that his sequel to Unbreakable dropped 53% since last week, and also came in well under Split’s second weekend.

Shyamalan’s Split opened slightly below Glass last weekend, but whereas Glass is starting to immediately dip, Split only dropped 36% in its second weekend, and will most likely beat Glass‘ overall domestic box office total.  Split was also able to add theaters over the film’s second and third week, capitalizing on “Split-fever” in the winter of 2017.  Glass, even with the weakest competition of the new year so far and two dead-on-arrival new releases, was not able to replicate the success of Shyamalan’s brief comeback. read more

Horror News Network’s Winter 2019 Movie Preview

Winter can be an unpredictable season.  Some days defy expectations and reach 60 degrees or better (in the parts of the country that actually have a traditional winter, not the fans lucky enough to live in California, Florida, or other more favorable environments) and then some days live up to their reputation, bringing sleet, snow, and the inevitable school closings and delays.

This winter’s horror film line-up is shaping up to be equally unpredictable and tumultuous.  Many projects that were scheduled for the months of January, February, and March have since disappeared (The Turning), have questionable release dates (Jacob’s Ladder on February 1st with no official trailer in site), or have been bought up by Netflix for home viewing (Eli).  Despite these inconsistencies, there are some firm release dates for horror fans this season, as well as a wide-variety of films to choose from, covering all of the sub-genres of  horror, ranging from thrillers to the ever-popular tales of possessed kids. read more
