'Box office analysts had already anticipated that Jordan Peele’s would conquer the box office over its opening weekend. But few predicted the Oscar winner’s follow-up to would go on to nab the largest debut ever for an original horror movie.
Such is the case for the Lupita Nyong-o vehicle. In just three days,Ushas raked in a staggering $70.3 million across U.S. theaters, a remarkable upgrade from his 2017 debut, which earned a then-impressive $33.3 million in its opening weekend.
What’s more,Usnow sits comfortably with the third largest opening of all time for an R-rated horror film, namely six million behind last October’s Halloween($76.2 mil) and, well, 53 million removed from 2017’s behemoth (123.4 mil). Ghouls rule.' - via COS
