M. Night Shyamalan returned to winning ways at the US box office this weekend back on familiar territory with a suspense thriller with a twist. Director M. Night Shyamalan has had an interesting career, taking the cinema by storm with 1999's The Sixth Sense and then after another couple of hits produced some really bad studio films.
This week he's back on form with Split and after some good reviews and star James McAvoy dominating the trailers the film makes its debut with $40 million at the US box office.
Falling to number 3 this week is Hidden Figures which takes $16 million this weekend which brings its total to $84 million after 5 weeks of release.
The film could have a bounce back at some point if it performs well at the Oscars in a months time.
Also new this week is xXx: Return of Xander Cage making its debut at number 2 with $20 million and The Founder new at 9 with $3.7 million.

As if there was any doubt about what would be at the top of the UK box office charts this week, and without any hassle The Hunger Games: Mockingly Part 1 has a terrific first week of release.
Taking over £12 million on it's debut weekend this is the third in The Hunger Games series, which has grown in strength as each film has been released.
The previous film in the series took almost exactly the same on it's opening weekend, but the first film, which was introducing a new franchise to cinema, took far less at just under £5 million.
Last weeks top film, Interstellar, falls to third place this week with The Imitation Game staying put in second place.
