“What’s amazing here is that this is arguably the second time during the massive exhibition pandemic shutdown that a new release after Universal/DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls World Tour, has topped the weekend box office. More amazingly, it’s an indie movie,” the outlet reported.

“I have been truly fortunate to have a partner in IFC Films whose agility and creativity during this time has allowed us to have this incredible moment for our film. As a first time filmmaker, I’m beyond grateful to the audiences who supported us this weekend,” Dave said in a statement.

A majority of that is from drive-in theaters, which continue to be the leading exhibitors at the weekend box office.

The movie stars Dave‘s wife, Alison Brie.

Here’s a movie synopsis: Two couples on an oceanside getaway grow suspicious that the host of their seemingly perfect rental house may be spying on them. Before long, what should have been a celebratory weekend trip turns into something far more sinister, as well-kept secrets are exposed and the four old friends come to see each other in a whole new light.
