Jordan Peele's 'Us' scores highest original horror debut of all time in North America

Neon’s space documentary Apollo 11 soars to $6.9m after four weekends.

Riding high on frenzied buzz and comparisons – by some observers in the Us at least – to Alfred Hitchcock, Jordan Peele confirmed that he is the genuine article as Us, his follow-up to global hit Get Out, delivered the highest debut of all time for an original horror film in North America on an estimated $70.3m.

Furthermore the story of a family hunted by their doppelgangers produced the third highest horror film opening weekend in North America, behind It on $123.4m and last year’s Halloween reboot on $76.2m.
