Director Jordan Peele’s latest thriller, Nope, made its box office debut this weekend. It took in a total of $44 million, claiming the top spot. The movie follows two siblings (Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer) reuniting at their family’s ranch after their father mysteriously dies. There’s more to the story, however, and they think the answer may lie in a UFO.
Thor: Love and Thunder couldn’t win this battle and slipped to second place. The Marvel film, starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, made another $22.1 million this weekend, grossing $276.2 million overall.
Minions: The Rise of Gru moved down to third place, taking in an additional $17.7 million in its fourth week for a domestic total of $297.9 million. The newest installment in the Despicable Me universe tells the story of a young Gru’s (Steve Carell) dream to become the world’s greatest supervillain.
It was a close race for fourth place between Top Gun: Maverick and Where The Crawdads Sing. The murder mystery starring Daisy Edgar-Jones landed in fourth with $10.3 million for a two-week total of $38.3 million, while the action sequel starring Tom Cruise rounded out the top five, bringing in another $10 million for a total of $635.6 million. ~Claudia Minardi
