M. Night Shyamalan's SPLIT is tearing it up at the box office!
If you have not seen M. Night Shyamalan's newest film, SPLIT, it looks like you need to go check it out. I have not seen it yet, but I plan on doing so this week! The film has spent quite a few weeks at the #1 spot grossing over $112 Million Dollars as of today. That is extremely impressive for a film with an estimated budget of only $9 Million Dollars!
I know a few horror fans that have not been a big fan of Shyamalan's lately based on his last few films, but it looks like this one is definitely finding a fan base! Here is a little bit about the film from the film's official website:
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns to the captivating grip of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs with Split, an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. Following last year’s breakout hit The Visit, Shyamalan reunites with producer Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series, The Gift) for the film.
While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being.
Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him—as well as everyone around him—as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
For Split, Shyamalan and Blum reassemble their core team from The Visit, the No. 1-grossing horror film of 2015. Their fellow collaborators include producer Marc Bienstock and executive producers Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider.
