Nope has passed the $100 million mark at the domestic box office, making it Jordan Peele’s third film to reach the coveted milestone after Get Out and Us.

The Universal Pictures release rang up another $1.2 million on Tuesday, boosting its three-week domestic total to $100.3 million.

The horror thriller stars Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer as siblings OJ and Emerald who run a horse ranch in California and discover something sinister in the skies above. The cast also includes Steven Yeun, Brandon Perea, Michael Wincott, and Keith David.

Nope debuted on July 22 and brought in $44 million over its opening weekend to top the box office. That was more than enough to make it the best opening for an original, non-sequel movie this summer.

Still, the thriller likely won’t be as profitable as Peele’s two previous films. Nope had a reported production budget of $68 million. Get Out cost $4.5 million and earned over $250 million worldwide in 2017, making it a massive success. Us had a budget of $20 million and brought in $255 million worldwide.

Critics gave Nope an impressive 82 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, calling it “viscerally entertaining,” although “less engaging” than Peele’s previous work.

The movie is written, directed, and produced by Peele under his Monkeypaw Productions banner.

Nope is currently in theaters in the United States, with an expected international release coming soon.
