The best weekend of the year for movies so far had The Lego Batman Movie on top while John Wick Chapter 2 managed to double the opening of it’s predecessor and Rings took a massive nosedive in it’s second weekend and Fifty Shades Darker made about half as much as it’s predecessor.
Over the Super Bowl weekend, Split remained on top while Rings had the lowest opening for the franchise and The Space Between Us had an all time terrible opening.
Split stayed on top of the box office for another weekend while Resident Evil: The Final Chapter had the lowest ever opening for the franchise and Matthew McConaughey’s Gold barely made it into the top 10.

M. Night Shymalan started to pull himself partly out of the hole he dug himself into in the mid-2000’s in 2015 with The Visit and he pulls himself completely out this year with the fantastic thriller Split, where James McAvoy plays a man with 23 personalities who has kidnapped three girls to awaken a powerful 24th personality nicknamed “The Beast”.
