According to Variety, Universal and Peele's Monkeypaw Productions spent $20 million to make Us, not inclusive of marketing and distribution costs. When it comes to R-rated horror films specifically, Get Out sits at third in lifetime gross, behind It and the original Exorcist, which is another record Us could soon shatter.
As part of the celebratory activities that took place after the debut of Us, Jay-Z chose to partake in the words of felicitations and congratulated director Jordan Peele for another cinematic feat. "Us" pushed Disney's "Captain Marvel" down to second place, at $35 million (Sh3.5 billion) for the weekend, but that female-led blockbuster had little to complain about. That's not a terrific rating - Get Out got an A- - and it suggests the word of mouth on the film might not be particularly strong. The new film has a 94 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, rare praise for a horror flick.

That's a boost for Netanyahu, who is heading into a general election while plagued by corruption investigations. Netanyahu is to be in Washington for two days next week - two weeks before Israel's April 9 ballot.
There are a lot of non-"original live-action film" s that have made a lot more than Us, but that does reflect just how big of an opening this number is for a movie that isn't based on anything that previously existed in film or another medium. With just over US$87 million generated last week worldwide, total revenues from the latest Marvel production now stand at over US$910 million.
Heading into the weekend, Universal was first in domestic sales, with revenue up 40 per cent year to date, buoyed by the sequel to How to Train Your Dragon and the thriller Glass. The movie was pulled from theaters in New Zealandfollowing the Christchurch shooting.
