Nope is still a yup, despite a hiccup.
Jordan Peele’s latest horror entry started out like gangbusters last weekend, but the emergence of a team of animated animal heroes–DC League of Super-Pets–took a little wind out of its sails this weekend, according to a report on Collider.
Still and all, for a non-sequel horror film, Nope performed well at the box office. With the movie playing in 3,800 theaters across North America, it raked in $18.6 million for this past three-day period. That represents a steep 58 percent tumble from its opening weekend, but it still has earned a respectable $80.5 million so far.
Nope–written, directed and produced by Peele–stars Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer as ranch-owning brother and sister OJ and Em, who try to capture footage of a UFO after seeing a mysterious craft flying over their ranch. Meanwhile, former child star Ricky Park (Steven Yeun)–owner of the nearby Jupiter’s Claim–tries to exploit the UFO for his own gain.
The Universal Pictures film also stars Brandon Perea, Michael Wincott and Barbie Ferreira. Robert Graf serves as executive producer.
