Feb. 3-5 Box Office

Split (Universal) stopped weak newcomers for a third week at No. 1, adding $14.5 million for a domestic total of $98.7 million. It’s probably a safe bet that M. Night Shyamalan will get to do the follow-up to the twist ending of the James McAvoy-fronted thriller.

Shyamalan’s horror-thriller has beaten out new releases, Paramount’s Rings, STX Entertainment’s The Space Between Us and Sony’s The Comedian over relatively slow Super Bowl weekend with an estimated $13 million from 2,931 theaters.
