Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ continues its box office reign
If you’re into horror, it would be safe to say that one horror franchise should have stayed dead and buried considering the results of this week’s box office. Here’s what went down:
The good news first – M.Night Shymalan’s Split is at the top of the box office for a third week in a row. The film brought in an estimated $14.6 million, raising its total to $98.7 million. It’s the first Shyamalan film to stay on top for three weeks, and in a day or two it will pass the $100 million mark. With two hits in a row, clearly the director is back to his winning ways.
Debuting in second place with $13 million was Rings. With horrible reviews and a lack of audience interest, its clear waiting more than a decade for a third entry into the franchise was a mistake, as was making an apparently horrible film.
As for the rest of the top five, A Dog’s Purpose was in third place with $10.8 million. Hidden Figures grabbed the fourth spot with $10.1 million, La La Land closed things out in fifth place with $7.45 million.
So, to recap, here were our predictions:
1) Split – $15 million
2) Rings – $11.5 million
3) A Dog’s Purpose – $9 million
4) Hidden Figures – $8.5 million
5) La La Land – $7 million
And here’s how the weekend is estimated to turn out:
1) Split – $14.6 million
2) Rings – $13 million
3) A Dog’s Purpose – $10.8 million
4) Hidden Figures – $10.1 million
5) La La Land – $7.45 million
Next weekend sees the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick 2. Be sure to check in on Friday to see our predictions!
