MOVIES: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Scares at the Box Office
Updated: Sep 9, 2021
The psychological thriller Us, written and directed by Academy Award winner Jordan Peele has had tremendous box office results since opening, taking in over $70 million on its first weekend. Since its March 22nd release, Us has managed to take in over $136 million, claiming the #1 spot in the box office in its first week, the top spot previously held by Disney’s Captain Marvel.
It’s no surprise that the Peele penned, original horror story about a family and their doppelgangers has taken over the box office. Jordan Peele has a knack when it comes to writing the eerie, a knack he has proven with his work Get Out and currently in the newly premiered Twilight Zone series on CBS.
