Director/writer M. Night Shyamalan’s psychological thriller Split was the #1 film over the weekend, beating out newcomer A Dog’s Purpose (#2, $18.3 million). Starring James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy, Split is one of Shyamalan’s best received films and it continues the momentum he received from the success of The Visit. Although Resident Evil: The Final Chapter managed just a fourth place debut with $13.8 million, the picture has already generated over $64.5 million worldwide. With a reasonable $40 million budget, this “final chapter” should turn a profit for Sony. Here’s the top 10:

1. Split – $26.2 million
