Black Film, “Get Out” has crossed the $100M mark, which makes Jordan Peele the first Black writer-director to do so with his feature debut. In less than a month in theaters, Get Out has now profited nearly well over 20 times the production cost of the movie.

If you haven’t seen Get Out yet, it tells the story of a young Black male visiting his White girlfriend’s parents estate. The horror film breaks down all the stereotypes Black men face when dating outside of their race, particularly White women and the often cultural disconnect through racist behavior.

If you haven’t seen it already, be sure to check it out in theaters. Congrats to Jordan Peel on making history.
