It’s already beat out its other competition in the adult titles category, with Sony and Black Label Media’s “Devotion” earning $1.8 million on release day with a projected $10.2 million intake over a five day period.
“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” released in theatres on Nov. 23 for an early one-week preview but is set to come out officially on Netflix on Dec. 23.
