Jordan Peele's third movie, "Nope", is estimated to have made $44 million this weekend in North America.

The box office projections for the sci-fi drama, which has Daniel Kaluuya in its lead role...

as a Hollywood horse wrangler, are expected to be around $50 million.

The film is Peele's biggest opening domestically, since his last movie.

The plot of the movie is unknown, but it is one of the most anticipated films so far this year.

And yet it had a lackluster opening, considering that it is rated R,

isn't tied to a blockbuster brand or sequel and it has a low production budget ($68 million)

This opening is better when compared to Peele's first film, "Get Out," but falls short of his latest film "Us."

The film doesn't have a good opening, but it has good reviews with an 83% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes.

With no imminent competition, movie ticket sales are likely to increase.

Peele, with the help of Universal, has managed to make another huge success with the opening of "Nope".
