Jordan Peele’s Nope made a strong showing this weekend at the box office, bringing in another $18.5 million for a 10-day total of $80.5 million, according to Comscore.

After topping the box office last weekend, the horror thriller fell a better-than-expected 58 percent, even though some analysts had predicted it would drop at least 60 percent.

Still, the Universal Pictures release didn’t ring up enough over the past three days to hold on to the top spot at the box office.

The animated action adventure opened in 4,314 theaters for a per location average of $5,331.

The Warner Bros. film follows Krypto the Super-Dog (voice of Dwayne Johnson) and Superman (voice of John Krasinski) who are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis together. The film is directed by Jared Stern and Sam Levine and is rated PG.

Elsewhere at the box office, Disney’s Thor: Love And Thunder was third with $13.07 million in its fourth week of release.
