The James McAvoy hit managed to take another $14 million

It's the third week running for M. Night Shyamalan's Split at the top of the US Box Office, earning more than $14.5 million to keep it firmly at number one.

The film follows the many, many personalities of lead actor James McAvoy, and has fought off the competition from a range of other massive films.

At number two, psychological horror Rings, the second sequel to The Ring after, um, The Ring Two debuted making $13 million in its opening weekend.

A Dog's Purpose fell a spot to number three, after it was ruled that the controversial video that alleged animal abuse on-set was a fake.

Award-winning Hidden Figures, the film which follows the role of three African-American women in the space missions, also dropped a spot to come in at number four.

La La Land remained at number five as the Oscars get ever closer. The film starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone has been nominated for the most Academy Awards ever (tying with Titanic and All About Eve).
