'Get Out' Just Earned Another Major Feat

Chris Washington (DANIEL KALUUYA) is the guest of a very odd garden party in Universal Picturesâ   â  Get Out,â   a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of â  The Visit,â   â  Insidiousâ   series and â  The Giftâ  ) and the mind of Jordan Peele.  When a young African-American man visits his white girlfriendâ  s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

'Get Out' Just Earned Another Major Feat

This may be the biggest one yet.

Published August 5, 2017

2017 has, thus far, delivered a slew of major box office smashes but none of them matched up in earnings to the Jordan Peele blockbuster phenomenon Get Out, as it has earned the title of most profitable movie of the year.

According to The Wrap, the horror-thriller raked in a whopping $217 million in profits and a 630 percent return on invenstment.

This only serves as the cherry on top of a sundae of major accomplishments since the film's release as it's earned several other accolades including a 99 percent fresh rating on Rotton Tomatoes and the highest-grossing original screenplay debut, a title that was previously held by The Blair Witch Project.

The film ultimately grossed $252 million worldwide. Costing just $4.5 million to make, and an estimated $30 million marketing budget, it ended up making a $217 million profit, in the end, seeing the film's creator, Jordan Peele, yield a major profit for his work.

Once again, congratulations to all involved in what is undoubtedly now an iconic staple in movie history.
