Recently released Jordan Peele’s UFO science fiction horror drama ‘Nope’ has received mostly positive reviews from critics and the audience, especially receiving praise for its direction, originality, and performances, but despite receiving positive reviews, according to reports, ‘Nope’ didn’t perform the same as expectations at the box office because critics expected a much more well from ‘Nope’.
Is Nope Hit or Flop?
According to reports, Jordan Peele’s ‘Nope’, released in the USA on 22 July 2022 in more than 3785 theaters, collected $19.53 million on its opening day and $44.36 million on its opening weekend at the domestic box office. Overall, ‘Nope’ has so far collected $123.27 million domestically and $47.95 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $171.23 million.
$171 million for Jordan Peele’s $68 million budgeted UFO Sci-Fi horror drama ‘Nope’ is well, but apart from the production budget, Universal Pictures spent a huge amount on prints and advertising costs for Jordan Peele’s most expensive film as a filmmaker and overall, it’s easy to say, ‘Nope’ has to earn more than $170 million at the box office for break-even and currently scenario is showing that ‘Nope’ will ends its box office with $175 million, which is not too well and it’s also not a money-making. Overall consider this, ‘Nope’ is an Above average film at the box office.
Talking about the critical response, then ‘Nope’ received a 6.8/10* IMDb rating based on 244k votes, and on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 83/100% based on 468 reviews.
As an R-rated and original, the opening of the film is well, but for Jordan Peele’s filmography, it’s underperformed because, in 2019, Jordan Peele’s same horror genre film, just 20 million budgeted ‘Us’ opened with $71 million at the box office for a $255.2 million global lifetime, while ‘Nope’ is not close to it.
