Still Sitting At 100% On Rotten Tomatoes, ‘Get Out’ Also Crushes The Box Office

There Is Something Magical Happening With ‘Get Out’!

I can’t think of a horror film being received like this in quite some time. ‘Get Out‘ is taking over the film world! Not only is the film still at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with 135 reviews but the box office numbers are reportedly amazing.

According to BoxOfficeMojo, Jordan Peele’s hit horror film brought in over 12 million dollars on Saturday. Estimates say Sunday will bring in 6 million bringing the total to over 30 million dollars, including Friday’s box office.

With a budget of 4.5 million dollars, ‘Get Out‘ is now a critical and financial success!

I believe it deserves all the praise because ‘Get Out‘ is one of the best horror films ever. Every review on Rotten Tomatoes is great, while our site has two very glowing reviews as well. The horror genre rarely sees this much high praise from critics.

The credit goes to multiple people including Jordan Peele’s amazing direction and script but also the acting. Each performance is memorable and there’s so many layers that will only be unfolded with multiple viewings. There’s also a lot of subtle references and easter eggs that Peele said will be helped by seeing it more than once.

Will all of this positive buzz crossover to next weekend? Only time will tell but no matter what, ‘Get Out‘ is going to be on many “best of 2017” list!

Have you seen it or plan on seeing it? Let me know in the comments below!

“In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation. Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the- parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods). At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.”
