Nope by Jordan Peele stays atop at the domestic box office this weekend, with $44 million from 3,785 cinemas in its first week of release. While making a less impressive debut than Us, which grossed $71 million in its first weekend in 2019 (and followed closely after Get Out), Peele’s alien invasion horror/adventure film nonetheless raked in solid numbers for an original IP. With a price tag of under 68 million dollars, Universal Studios will certainly consider this a victory. Imax contributed 12 percent of Nope’s total earnings on 400 screens, where the picture brought in $5,2 million. The movie won’t be shown in other countries until August.
Thor: Love and Thunder, on the other hand, brought its domestic total to $276.2 million following a weekend drop of 53% to $22.1 million. The fact that the Marvel movie has made a total of $600 million throughout the globe should put an end to many of the claims that “the MCU is dead” at least for the time being. While Minions: The Rise of Gru has brought in an impressive $297.8 million in the United States alone and a staggering $640 million worldwide.
Top Gun: Maverick continues to soar high. The Tom Cruise adventure gathered an extra $10 million (-19 %) domestically over the weekend for a $635.5 million total in the US, bringing its worldwide total to a staggering $1.282 billion.
