Jordan Peele's 'Get Out' Is The #1 Film, Grossing $30.5M In Weekend Sales
Move over Lego Batman there’s a new number one to chart the weekend box office.
Jordan Peele‘s satirical, race-conscious horror film, Get Out, has shocked racists, impressed critics and dominated the box office with an impressive $30.5 million debut.
Starring Daniel Kaluuya in Peele’s feature directorial debut, Get Out marks the second win for indie horror production house, Blumhouse Productions, who had earned big with M. Night Shyamalan’s Split, which has grossed $221.2 million globally since its Jan. 20 release.
Playing in 2,781 theaters and costing under $5 million to make, Get Out toppled The Lego Batman Movie from the #1 spot after scoring the rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Peele, who also wrote Get Out, deserves all of the hype, hoopla and applause his film has produced.
