Unsurprisingly, “Nope” was a hit in the United Kingdom, home of star Daniel Kaluuya, with an opening weekend of $2.1 million (compared to $2.6 million for “Get”) Out” and $3.6 million for “Us”). Before landing her Hollywood breakout role in Peele’s first horror film, Kaluuya rose to fame on British television screens through shows such as “Skins”, “Psychoville”, “Ruddy Hell! It’s Paul and Harry” ” and the memorable “Black Mirror” episode “Fifteen Million Spirits.”
This isn’t the first time in recent history that a highly anticipated genre film starring a former “Skins” cast member has suffered a disappointing release delay here. “The Green Knight,” starring Dev Patel as Arthurian’s character Sir Gawain, was delayed from release in the UK by just two weeks’ notice last summer. UK distributor Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures finally gave it a simultaneous release in theaters and on Prime Video on September 24, which significantly invalidated the release. ticket office run.
And the hits continue to reach horror fans outside of the United States. “Bodies Bodies Bodies,” which was released domestically last weekend, will only cross the Atlantic to select European countries on September 9. In the United Kingdom and Ireland, the film will face off against “Crimes” of the Future”, was released in the US in early June.
