Jordan Peele’s ‘Get Out’ Hits the $100 Million Mark at the Box Office

Jordan Peele

Jordan Peele’s racially-charged suspense thriller, Get Outhas not only sparked a ton of dialogue about the terrifying nature of racism and Black masculinity onscreen, but it’s also a hit with audiences. The film, which was written and directed by the former Key & Peele alum, has officially crossed the coveted $100 million mark at the box office.

Though it was knocked from its perch as the number 1 film in America, Get Out still managed to bring in $21 million over the weekend, despite being up against two mega hits–Kong Skull Island and Logan. The milestone also makes Peele’s project the fastest movie to earn $100 for Blumhouse, a production company that focuses on horror films.

Since the film was released, Peele has been promoting it by interacting with fans on social media, including sharing hilarious #GetOutChallenge memes.

Get Out won’t be the last thriller fans will see from Peele. In an interview with Business Insider, he let it slip he has a whole series of films about “social demons” in the works.

“I have four other social thrillers that I want to unveil in the next decade,” he said. “The best and scariest monsters in the world are human beings and what we are capable of especially when we get together. I’ve been working on these premises about these different social demons, these innately human monsters that are woven into the fabric of how we think and how we interact, and each one of my movies is going to be about a different one of these social demons.”

We can’t wait!
