Split Tops Box Office For Third Weekend
WINNIPEG, MB — M. Night Shyamalan is back in a big way.
The much maligned director’s lastest offering, Split, took the top box office spot for the third weekend in a row.
It’s about a man with 23 personalities who kidnaps three girls.
The film grossed $14.6-million in its third weekend raising receipts to $98.7-million.
It only cost an estimated $9-million to produce.
Put a Ring on it
Paramount’s Rings opened in second place with $13-million.
A reboot of sorts, it follows the story of a videotape that kills you seven days after watching it.
The film cost $25-million to produce and should earn back its budget by the time it leaves theatres.
Lots of space here
The Space Between Us failed to launch and instead crashed into a ninth place opening.
It grossed $3.8-million on a $30-million production budget.
A sizeable chunk of that will probably be lost over the theatrical run.
Critics were not invited to watch The Space Between Us before it opened.
It holds an 18% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The top 10 box office numbers from the weekend follow below:
|3||2||A Dog’s Purpose||$10.8-million||2|
|5||5||La La Land||$7.5-million||9|
|6||4||Resident Evil: The Final Chapter||$4.5-million||2|
|9||—||The Space Between Us||$3.8-million||New|
|10||6||xXx: The Return of Xander Cage||$3.7-million||3|
