M Night Shyamalan’s Glass opened top of the North American charts over Martin Luther King Jr holiday weekend, earning an estimated $40.6m for the three-day portion and a projected $47m over four through Universal.

Fox’s Japanese fantasy animation Dragon Ball Super: Broly struck a blow for anime as it arrived in third place on an excellent $10.7m in 1,233 sites, and has grossed $65.9m outside North America through Fox International.

Glass, Shyamalan’s finale of his Eastrail 177 genre trilogy, opened in 3,841 theatres and was on a par with the $40m debut of Split exactly two years ago, and marginally behind the $41.4m number when adjusted for inflation. The $47m four-day result would, if confirmed by the studio this week, rank third in the all-time MLK holiday four-day pantheon behind Warner Bros’ The Sniper on $107.2m, and Universal’s Ride Along on $48.6m.
