Jordan Peele’s latest film is set to break records at the box office. His highly anticipated horror film Us is estimated to rake in $67 million from 3,741 movie theaters in North America by the end of the weekend, Variety reports.
Us is slated to take the title as the second biggest movie debut of 2019 behind Captain Marvel as well as the highest grossing debut for an original horror film. Us will also have the biggest debut weekend for a R-Rated movie, displacing 2012’s Ted which grossed $54.4 million.
Us, which stars Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, is already outdoing Peele’s directorial debut Get Out, which grossed $33 million its debut weekend.
The horror flick follows the family of Adelaide Wilson, played by Nyong’o as they venture to her childhood home for a summer vacation. But once they arrived, their trip turned into a nightmare. The film also stars Winston Duke, known for playing Mbaku in Black Panther, Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex.
