The Jordan Peele directed movie Get Out which is an allegory of African-American strengths being siphoned for the benefit of white people, disguised as a run-of-the-mill horror flick crossed over into blockbuster status this weekend. The movie which cost $4.5 million to make has now grossed over $111 million at the box office. No matter what happens from here on out it will be most of the most profitable movies of the year.
Universal and Blumhouse's Get Out finished third this weekend, once again outperforming expectations as it dropped just 25.4% for an estimated $21 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $111 million. Coming up with comparisons for Jordan Peele's breakout thriller is near-impossible as its week-over-week performance is mind-blowing as it is already Blumhouse Productions' second highest grossing release of all-time and showing absolutely no signs of stopping. And it can't be said often enough, the film's budget was a mere $4.5 million.
