Nope, directed by Jordan Peele, debuted in theatres this weekend and easily took first place at the box office, further establishing Peele as the best horror director of all time.

The movie, which is kind of about who makes movies and who gets eaten up by the machine when movies are made, made $44 million in its first week, which was twice as much as Thor: Love and Thunder, which was in second place and played in about 600 fewer theatres.

Moviegoers Say ‘Yep’ to Nope

After three weeks in theatres, Thor has earned $276 million, just shy of the $280 million that Minions: The Rise of Gru has made in four weeks (that probably says more about Minions doing well than Thor doing poorly, but who knows).

After last week’s most prominent newcomer, Where The Crawdads Sing, earned $10 million in its second weekend of release (bringing its total to $38 million), Minions took third place this week with $17 million.

Top Gun: Maverick, which has made $635 million in nine weeks on the charts, comes in at number five and is the only other film to gross over $10 million this week. Elvis, Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank, The Black Phone, Jurassic World Dominion, and Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris are the remaining five films.

Dominion is the only one to have turned a profit, and its total of $365 million after seven weeks places it as the year’s fourth highest-grossing film. Therefore, even if you don’t enjoy superhero films, at least there will be endless legacy sequels to see.

Box Office Mojo has provided the following list of the top 10 films of all time:-

Nope
Thor: Love And Thunder
Minions: The Rise Of Gru
Where The Crawdads Sing
Top Gun: Maverick
Elvis
Paws Of Fury: The Legend Of Hank
The Black Phone
Jurassic World Dominion
Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris
