Monday Morning Box Office Report: Split Wins Third Weekend in a Row


M. Night Shyamalan’s Split continued its impressive theatrical run over the weekend as it topped the box office for the third weekend in a row, just barely edging out Rings. The last Shyamalan movie to have this kind of staying power was The Sixth Sense, which spent five weeks at the top of the box office back in 1999. In second place, Paramount’s Rings was a major disappointment, opening with just $13 million — almost a third of what The Ring Two made back in 2005. Clearly the interest just wasn’t there although the bad reviews didn’t help either. A Dog’s Purpose fell to third, followed by Hidden Figures and La La Land. Elsewhere The Space Between Us cratered on impact, debuting in ninth place with just $3.8 million.
