The invasion is going well so far.
Nope–Jordan Peele’s third horror feature–is off to a solid start at the box office, earning $6.4 million in last night’s previews from 3,250 theaters, according to a report on Deadline.
Nope–which deals with California residents reacting to an “immersive” UFO experience–came in slightly behind the $7.4 million earned in previews by Peele’s last film, 2019’s Us, but ahead of the $2 million recorded by his 2017 debut movie, Get Out.
Off this encouraging start–and with generally glowing reviews from critics and fans–industry experts believe Nope will rake in around $50 million for its opening weekend.
Nope–written, directed and produced by Peele–stars Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, Barbie Ferreira and Brandon Perea. The film follows the residents of “a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery,” according to the logline.
