Is Shyamalan Back On Top?
As unfair of a question it may be, M. Night Shyamalan went from being on top of the cinematic world to almost a laughing stock of Hollywood. As much as I loved the Happening, it wasn’t anywhere near something like Signs or Unbreakable. Good and surprising news is on the horizon though with Shyamalan‘s new and unexepected hit Split which has now sat comfortably at number 1 at the box office for 2 weeks!
Very rarely do we see a genre film like horror or thriller at the top of the box office charts especially for 2 weeks. Split has raked in $78 million domestically, $102 million globally, and has a 74% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Not too shabby for a film with a budget of $9 million.
With fans praising James MacAvoy‘s performance as well, Shyamalan may be back on top!
