Posted by at 7:47 pm on January 22, 2017

M. Night Shyamalan has delivered a second hit in a row as his latest film, Split, is estimated to have delivered a top five January opening, leading the weekend charge with a three-day opening four times as big as its reported $10 million budget. Meanwhile, Paramount’s xXx: The Return of Xander Cage delivered as expected while the Weinstein’s The Founder scored a top ten finish.

Additionally, Disney’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has become the 28th film to top $1 billion worldwide. With an estimated $40.18 million, Split is currently the fourth largest January opening of all-time, just ahead of 2008’s Cloverfield, which debuted with $40 million and went on to gross $80 million domestically. This is also a dramatic improvement over Shyamalan’s well-received 2015 thriller The Visit, which opened with $25.4 million and went on to gross over $65 million.
