Horror author Jordan Peele is comfortably carving his name into the summer box office hits list after his recent horror film. Nope It started off strong at the early box office. And while general details about the UFO-centric plot have been kept relatively low-key, perhaps that blatant intrigue is why people are flocking to theaters to witness Peele’s third major feature film.

According to Variety, Peele’s UFO creation has already grossed an impressive $6.4 million during early Thursday night screenings. And while Peele doesn’t consider himself the best horror director yet, a third successful horror movie in a row is certainly a stellar place to start. As a result of the first earnings, Nope it’s now on track to rack up as much as $60 million during its opening weekend at the biggest box office, which, if you ask us, is pretty good.

The early gross is certainly no surprise, considering how strong the film’s early reviews were, combined with the positive forecast before its official release. And with a star-studded cast list that includes Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun and Brandon Perea, it’s only a matter of time until Nope it fits in with the rest of Peele’s films, or unanimously surpasses them.

With many of this summer’s blockbuster movies out of the way, Peele’s mysterious tale of two ranch-owning brothers battling a sinister flying object is poised to cause a stir in the realm of cinematic horror.

Nope it’s in theaters now.
