M Night Shyamalan’s newest project earns him number one at the box office. Rightfully so in my opinion. Split is such a suspenseful film that has you on the edge of your seat throughout. McAvoy delivers a career performance that will be remembered through time. Playing an insane 24 different personalities. Truly incredible. Anya Taylor-Joy has arrived, between this and The Witch, she’s turned in two world class performances. Of course M Night throws a massive twist in here, and it changes the whole game.

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage $20M
I imagine that the team behind this is a tad disappointed. Not only that it comes in second, but only makes back a quarter of its whopping $85M budget. Studios have to stop coming back to franchises that haven’t had a follow up in decades. People just aren’t interested anymore. All that being said, I enjoyed this flick for what it is. Big dumb action, Diesel is Diesel and if you turn your brain off you can have fun. $85M though? You have to be hoping for a massive overseas haul.

Hidden Figures $16M
This has to be getting people’s attention. Hidden Figures has been having little drop off from week to week. Only making $3M less than last weekend. It’s good that people are making a point to see this film.
This is what cornering the market looks like. There isn’t another animated flick out, so families are still taking the kids to see this. Rightfully so, it’s a fun little film. Both adults and kids can enjoy it.

La La Land $8.4M
Again, this film is making money because it’s the Oscar front runner. It’s one of the years best. It’s not something you want to watch more than twice though. I watched it twice and I got the point.
