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 opened 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.

  • The Curse of La Llorona Wins Soft Box Office

    Overall box office receipts this weekend are sluggish this weekend, which is shaping up to be the worst in nearly 15 years (since Miss Congeniality 2 took the top spot in 2005). There’s a fairly good reason for that: Easter weekends typically do not fall the weekend before the release of Avengers: Endgame. Most studios weren’t brave enough to sacrifice a film this weekend, knowing that it would get chewed up in the motor of the MCU next weekend. It made sense, then, for New Line to release The Curse of La Llorona since most horror movies tend to be front-loaded, anyway.

  • Weekend Box Office: ‘Fate Of The Furious’ Poised To Break ‘The Force Awakens’ Record

    The Fate and the Furious, the eighth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, opened in North America right at $100 million, which is at the low end of expectations for the movie stateside. That hardly matters, however, because where it counts — the global box office — Fate is poised to break the record of biggest opening weekend of all time. The record for biggest global weekend of all time is currently held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with $529 million.

  • The Jungle Book Takes Best Box Office Prize, "Mother's Day" Bombs

    "The Jungle Book" took the top spot in box office earnings this weekend with over 42 million in sales and will probably pass the $300 million in domestic ticket sales. Admittedly, there wasn't much competition for the Mowgli and friends with a paltry opening for Gary Marshall's ensemble comedy which was cleverly named, "Mother's Day" just like his other holiday snoozers, "Valentine's Day" and "New Year's Eve". The film stars a whole gaggle of stars including former Pretty Woman, Julia Roberts. Keanu the comedy from Key and Peele only brought in 9.3 million but hey, it only cost a measly $15 million to make so chances are it will be paying back it's investors.
