Glass doesn't break from the top!

For a third weekend, the institutionalized super-beings of GLASS held onto first place at the box office with an estimated $9.5 million!

Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan's UNBREAKABLE/SPLIT sequel led a quiet moviegoing weekend (overall the lowest-grossing Super Bowl weekend in almost two decades) to push its domestic total to $88.6 million.

The PG-13 thriller with with Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and James McAvoy(s) is now at a worldwide total of nearly $200 million, on a reported cost of $20 million. The third chapter in Shyamalan's series still hasn't cracked the domestic or global totals of either UNBREAKABLE or SPLIT.

The PG-13 drama THE UPSIDE secured second place again with $8.8 million, bringing the Kevin Hart/Bryan Cranston/Nicole Kidman remake of French film THE INTOUCHABLES to a domestic total of $75.5 million and $83.2 million worldwide over its fourth weekend (on a reported $37 million cost).

Opening in third place was the new crime drama MISS BALA with $6.7 million.

A remake of the 2011 Mexican movie of the same name, the PG-13 thriller from director Catherine Hardwicke (THIRTEEN, TWILIGHT) cost a reported $15 million.

Critics weren't enamored with Gina Rodriguez's beauty queen turned reluctant DEA accomplice, giving the movie a 27% average on Rotten Tomatoes. Shoot on over to the JoBlo review HERE.

In fourth place was DC Comics superhero AQUAMAN with $4.7 million to take Jason Momoa's Atlantean champion up to a domestic total of $323.5 million, pushing it past DEADPOOL 2's $318 million finish to become the fifth highest-grossing release of 2018. The PG-13 comic adaptation from director James Wan is also now at a worldwide total of $1.1 billion.

The animated SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE adhered to fifth place for yet another weekend with $4.4 million for a domestic total $175.2 million after two full months on the top half of the chart. The diverse group of web-heads has collected a worldwide total of $347.2 million on a reported $90 million cost.

The R-rated collection of digitally enhanced World War I footage has a domestic total of $10.7 million, including its previous three single-day screenings.

Outside the chart, the R-rated Matthew McConaughey / Anne Hathaway nautical thriller SERENITY drifted away after one weekend in the Top 10. Anime movie DRAGON BALL SUPER: BROLY was also punched off the list.

In limited release, the Mads Mikkelsen survival thriller ARCTIC got a cold reception with a per-screen average of $14k. At least critics warmed to it with an 84% average on Rotten Tomatoes (the JoBlo review is HERE).

And the animated sequel HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD doesn't fly into domestic theaters for another three weeks, but Hiccup and Toothless have already soared to $84.4 million from international audiences.

Next weekend kicks February into gear with animated sequel THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART, the Liam Neeson revenge thriller COLD PURSUIT, the Taraji Henson romantic comedy WHAT MEN WANT, and the R-rated creepy-kid horror movie THE PRODIGY.
