Rounding out the top five movies at the US box office this weekend were xXx: Return of Xander Cage ($20 million), Hidden Figures ($16.3 million), Sing ($9 million), and La La Land ($8.4 million).

The big opening weekend for the James McAvoy-starring Split continues Shyamalan's win streak, as 2015's The Visit also did well, after earlier movies like After Earth and The Happening disappointed. $40.2 million is far bigger than the opening weekends for Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense ($26.7 million) and Unbreakable ($30.3 million).

In other news, Star Wars: Rogue One pushed past $1 billion at the global box office this weekend. The next Star Wars film, Episode VIII, comes out this December.

US Box Office January 20-22 Estimates:

  1. Split – $40.2 million
  2. xXx: Return of Xander Cage – $20 million
  3. Hidden Figures – $16.3 million
  4. Sing – $9 million
  5. La La Land – $8.4 million
  6. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – $7 million
  7. Monster Trucks – $7 million
  8. Patriots Day – $6 million
