‘Us’ Cements the Box Office Power of Jordan Peele
Given the breakout success of “Get Out,” it’s no surprise audiences were salivating to see the next nightmare from the mind of writer-director Jordan Peele.

Get Out,” which landed a screenwriting Oscar for Peele, became one of the most profitable movies of 2017 (grossing $255 million globally on a $4.5 million budget) after the horror film captured the zeitgeist with its exploration of race relations in America. Even with the sky-high expectations set for “Us,” the filmmaker’s second directorial effort, few predicted just how many moviegoers had boarded the Jordan Peele train.

“Us,” a psychological thriller about a family confronted by their doppelgangers, put industry projections to shame when it debuted to a massive $70 million in North America, nearly doubling forecasts heading into the weekend. The studio and tracking services predicted it would net a three-day total in the $38 million to $45 million range. “Us” now boasts the second-best debut of the

'Us' Box Office: Jordan Peele Becomes a Brand-Name Draw
It's official: writer-director Jordan Peele is a brand unto himself.

Two years after his feature directorial debut Get Out turned into a water-cooler sensation, Peele's critically acclaimed Us exceeded all expectations by opening to a stunning $70 million in North America — the third-biggest horror debut of all time behind 2017's It ($123.4 million), based on the Stephen King novel, and last year's Halloween update ($76.2 million).

That wasn't the only milestone. Us, from Universal, secured the top launch ever for an original horror title after screaming louder than John Kraskinki's A Quiet Place ($50.2 million). Ditto for ...

‘Us’ Sets Box Office Record for Original Horror Film

‘Us’ Sets Box Office Record for Original Horror Film
Jordan Peele’s Us scared up a new box office record in its first weekend in theaters as the film set the best-ever opening for an original horror movie.

With a $70 million domestic opening weekend – nearly double its early estimates of $38 million – Us surpassed A Quiet Place for the best opening for an original horror film, and posted the best opening for an original R-rated film since Ted in 2012, Variety reported.

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.

Box Office: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Stuns With $70 Million Opening Weekend
Talk about scary good.

Universal’s “Us,” the second directorial effort from Jordan Peele, pulled off a stunning debut, generating $70 million from 3,741 North American locations. That haul is enough to land it the second-best opening weekend of the year behind Disney’s “Captain Marvel” ($153 million). The psychological thriller about a family confronted by a band of doppelgangers nearly doubled projections, which estimated a three-day total in the $38 million to $45 million range.

“Us” now has the largest weekend for an original horror movie, surpassing “A Quiet Place,” as well as the biggest launch for an original R-rated film behind “Ted.” It also shattered the benchmark set by Peele’s directorial debut “Get Out,” which launched with $33 million in 2017.

Overseas, “Us” launched with $16.7 million from 47 international territories for a global start of $86.95 million. That number is all the more impressive considering Universal and Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions spent a modest $20 million to make “Us,

Jordan Peele's 'Us' Delivers a Mind-Blowing $70 Million Debut
Universal's release of Jordan Peele's Us dominated the domestic box office, not only out-performing the opening weekends for several recent horror hits, but delivering the second largest opening ever for a live-action, original picture, topping the weekend box office with over $70 million. As a result, the 2019 box office continues to improve over the month of March after struggling to begin the year. Overall, this weekend was the third straight to outperform the same weekend last year. At #1, with an estimated $70.25 million (~49.6% of all tickets sold among the top 12 films), Us topped the weekend box office with the third largest opening of all-time for an R-rated horror film, blowing away 2018's The Nun ($53.8m opening) and placing behind Universal's own Halloween, which opened with $76.2 million last October. The film also decimated the opening for Peele's previous film Get Out, which was a massive hit back in 2017 following a $33.3 million debut.

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ on Pace for $67 Million Opening, Double ‘Get Out’ Debut
Universal/Monkeypaw’s “Us” is blowing by all analysts’ expectations this weekend. On the back of strong pre-release buzz and an opening day total of $29 million, Jordan Peele’s second film is estimated to gross $67 million from 3,741 screens this weekend.

If that estimate holds, not only will “Us” have doubled the opening weekend of Peele’s debut film “Get Out” ($33.3 million), it will set a new opening weekend record for original horror films, beating the $50.2 million of last year’s “A Quiet Place.” It’s also a new openiing record for any original film released in March.

The one somewhat bad note for “Us” is that while critics have been raving about the film with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 95 percent, audiences aren’t quite as enthused as they were for “Get Out.

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Scares Up $7.4 Million at Thursday Box Office
“Us,” the horror follow-up to “Get Out” from director Jordan Peele and released by Universal, earned a massive $7.4 million in its Thursday box office previews from 3,150 screens. It opens on 3,741 screens this weekend.

Independent trackers have “Us” expected to earn between $45-50 million, though Universal is saying that the opening would be considered a success if it was within the range of “Get Out.” Peele’s previous film earned $33.3 million in its first weekend in 2017 following a Thursday preview total of just $1.8 million.

A $50 million opening for “Us” would also put it within the range of the opening for John Krasinski’s horror film “A Quiet Place,” which earned $4.3 million during its Thursday previews. It also eclipsed the total of last year’s horror prequel “The Nun,” which made an impressive $5.4 million on Thursday ahead of a $53.8 million opening.

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ At $6M+ Shushes ‘The Nun’, ‘A Quiet Place’ & ‘Get Out’ – Updated Thursday Night B.O.
Exclusive, 2nd Update 9:05Pm: Jordan Peele’s Us is now looking forward to a $6M+ Thursday night. That beats the preview nights of The Nun ($5.4M), A Quiet Place ($4.3M), and it’s just under the midnight previews of Paranormal Activity 2 ($6.3M, 31% of its $20.1M Friday for a $40.6M three-day).

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Headed Toward an Even Bigger Opening Than ‘Get Out’

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Headed Toward an Even Bigger Opening Than ‘Get Out’
Two years ago, Jordan Peele became the box office’s biggest surprise as “Get Out” became one of the year’s biggest cultural and financial hits. Now, with an Oscar and multiple producer attachments to his name, Peele is ready to make a big splash at the box office again as Universal releases his second film, “Us,” nationwide this weekend.

While there were 14 other films that had a higher domestic gross than in 2017, “Get Out” had by far the biggest return on investment. Produced by Blumhouse with its usual thrifty approach, the film grossed $176 million domestic and $255 million worldwide against a mere $4.5 million production budget. The film also legged out far better than most horror or R-rated movies, as it opened to $33.3 million in February 2017 and more than quintupled that amount by the end of its domestic theatrical run.
