WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Glass repeats atop the chart with 19MM on a 53 percent drop; this trajectory is quite a bit lower than its predecessor, Split, but it's still boffo biz against a 20MM production budget. The Upside places again with 12.2MM on a leggy 18 percent drop (could it top the chart on Super Bowl weekend? Hmm.)  Aquaman shows again with another 7.4MM on a 28 percent drop.  The Kid Who Would Be King debuts in the fourth slot with 7.3MM, which I presume is disappointing, though it could still make decent bank in the UK (where it oddly hasn't opened yet).  Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse rounds out the Top Five with another 6.2MM on a still-leggy 19 percent drop.
