Jordan Peele’s Us Earns an Estimated $70.2 Million at the Box Office

It was expected that Jordan Peele's latest movie would open big at the box office, but now the first weekend numbers are in (thanks to Box Office Mojo) and Us had the biggest opening ever for an original horror movie with an estimated $70.2 million take.

Us had a production budget of $20 million, and along with it's $70.2 million weekend in the United States, it also added an additional $16.7 to its international gross, for a worldwide total of $86.9 million.

Comparing this this to Get Out, that movie carried a production budget of $4.5 million, opened in the United States at $33.3 million, and went on to earn $255.4 million during it's entire theatrical run worldwide. It's safe to say that Us is well on its way to breaking Get Out's worldwide total.

This is another huge accomplishment for Jordan Peele, Blumhouse, and Universal, especially when you consider that it easily topped other opening weekends for original horror movies.
