At least Abrams is enjoying considerably more success than M. Night Shayamalanaramalamadingdong. After Earth barely sparked only at number three at the box office. If it sparked that low, chances are it won't even be in the top five by the next week. At least STID has thus far enjoyed three weeks in the top five, even if it has slipped to number four.
