Knock At The Cabin Is #1 At The Box Office: Here’s What People Are Saying!

After seven weeks at the top of the box office, Avatar: The Way of Water has been dethroned by M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock at the Cabin. Here’s what social media has to say!

Believe it or not, we are already in the second month of 2023! January has come and gone, and despite several new releases (M3GAN, missing, Plane, ect.) Avatar: The Way of Water has been top of the box office the entire year. That is until this past weekend when M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock at the Cabin claimed the top spot. With a $14+ Million opening and a fresh score from both critics and audiences on Rotten Tomatoes, this is another hit from the master of twists.

This is highly of note, not only because it’s the first new release of 2023 to top the box office, but because Shyamalan has personally been financing his films since 2015.

Like most horror movies (and especially M. Night Shyamalan movies) initial reactions have been somewhat divisive, but people are mostly positive. People are also surprised by how emotional the film gets.

While the movie is dark and suspenseful, that hasn’t stopped people from having fun with it.

The acting has also been a stand out for many viewers, especially Dave Bautista and Rupert Grint.

Star Ben Aldridge, and his looks, have also been a big topic of discussion.
