M. Night Shyamalan has continued his dominance at the box office, as he sees his latest film, “The Village” top the box office this week.
The film earned $50.8 million in this, its opening weekend, more than $10 million more than Disney projected it would earn.
His past films include “Signs” and “The Sixth Sense.”
“The Bourne Supremacy” remained strong, bringing in $23.4 million to slip to the number two spot.
“The Manchurian Candidate,” starring Denzel Washington, a remake of an earlier film starring Frank Sinatra, opened at number three with $20.2 million in box office sales.
“I, Robot” and “Spider-man 2” round out the top 5.
“Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,” which received rave reviews from critics, despite having a less than stellar cast and low budget, earned $5.2 million to debut in seventh.
