Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ rules inauguration weekend with $40.2M
NEW YORK (AP) — M. Night Shyamalan's psychological thriller "Split" blew away box-office expectations, earning $40.2 million in ticket sales over inauguration weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.
Review: Fun performances aren’t enough to save ‘Split’
"Split " is a movie in which James McAvoy plays a man with 23 personalities. Some of them are kind. Some are strange. Some are talented. Some are deranged. One is a woman. One is a child. And one of them likes to kidnap teenage girls, lock them in a basement and make them dance naked. As with any thriller, of course, this one from writer-director M. Night Shyamalan chooses to focus on the increasingly scantily clad teenage girls in peril. Forgive me if I'm a little bored already, but not even McAvoy sporting a tight turtleneck and pleated midi skirt while affecting a posh accent as one of the personalities, Miss Patricia, is enough to really save this film.
