Deadline reported that Us has generated approximately $70.2 million in ticket sales after pulling in $25.4 million on Saturday. Deadline notes that there were concerns Us wouldn't recieve the same audience reception as his lauded debut film, Get Out. But by Friday night, Us had already exceeded the $33 million that Get Out brought in its whole debut weekend.
Because the film premiered on Thursday, Us' opening weekend officially ended on Saturday. Still, Us' $70.2 million makes the film the biggest opening for a live-action original since 2009's Avatar ($77 million). Although it falls behind classic reboots It ($123.4 million) and Halloween ($76.2 million), Us had a record-setting opening for an original horror film.
Us—which features Black Panther co-stars Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong'o, alongside Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker—still has more money to rake in overseas, where it's set to premiere in several other international markets.
