Maybe they should knock louder.
Knock at the Cabin–M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller–took an impressive tumble at the domestic box office in its second weekend, according to a report on Deadline.
The feature–which became the filmmaker’s seventh movie to open at No. 1 domestically last weekend with more than $14 million–earned just $5.2 million this weekend, placing sixth in the Top 10. And this was without any strong competition debuting during the three-day period.
The R-rated film may have succumbed to its C rating from CinemaScore and a low 35 percent recommended rating from moviegoers.
The movie–written and directed by Shyamalan–is based on Paul Tremblay’s 2018 novel The Cabin at the End of the World, and stars Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Ben Aldridge and Jonathan Groff.
In the film, a young girl and her parents are relaxing at a remote cabin when four armed strangers arrive, demanding they make “an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse,” according to the synopsis.
The frightened family–cut off from the rest of the world and helpless before the intruders–now “must decide what they believe–before all is lost.”
