Super Bowl box office: Glass still No. 1 in slow weekend with $9.5M; Spider-Verse becomes Sony's top animated feature

With so much buzz around the Big Game tonight, no one has been paying much attention to the current slate of movies in theaters. According to trades like The Hollywood Reporter, this is the slowest Super Bowl box office weekend in 20 years.

Nevertheless, Glass remains strong in its third week, set to take in another $9.5 million domestically for Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions. To date, the sequel to both Unbreakable and Split has made $81 million in North America and $89 million in foreign markets. The international total for the unconventional superhero flick is $171.2 million. 

The Upside and Miss Bala are nabbing the second and third spots, but the next two places are all genre: Aquaman and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, reports Variety.

Aquaman swam toward the fourth spot with $4.7 million. Last weekend, the James Wan-directed Aquaman sailed past The Dark Knight Rises to become the highest-grossing DC film in history. While still behind a number of DC films in terms of domestic gross, Aquaman's international total now stands at $1.098 billion. 

Into the Spider-Verse webs the fifth spot with $4.4 million. The animated superhero comedy, which took home the top Annie Award last night, recently became Sony's biggest animated movie when it surpassed $170 million domestically. Internationally, the movie has made over $341 million.

Joe Cornish's The Kid Who Would be King is officially a box office bomb in just its second weekend. So far, the modern take on the Arthurian legend has made $10 million domestically and $3.5 million from foreign markets. While reviews have been positive (it's got an 87% on Rotten Tomatoes), the fantasy-comedy, which stars Patrick Stewart and Rebecca Ferguson, just wasn't worthy enough.
