Us Scares Up 3rd Biggest Horror Debut of All Time with $70M
Jordan Peele's Us dominated this weekend's box office with a record breaking $70.3 million domestic opening. The debut was enough to earn the Get Out follow up the third highest grossing debut for a horror movie in history. Only Steven Muschietti's big screen adaptation of Stephen King's It ($123.4 million) and last year's Halloween sequel ($76.2 million) are ahead of Us. Peele's latest project has been a hit with fans and critics and many recommend seeing the movie twice to fully digest everything that is going on in it.

As for the number two spot this weekend, that goes to Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel, which was able to bring in an additional $35 million.

It's just a matter of time now.
