‘Get Out’ Wins the Weekend Box Office

Jordan Peele's hotly-anticipated horror and social commentary Get Out reigned supreme at the box office this weekend, translating its stunning critical reception into a $30.5 million debut weekend. The movie, which stars Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams, opened in 2,781 theaters, taking in a $10,976 per-screen average. Two other new films—Rock Dog and Collide—didn't even crack the top 10 earnings. Get Out, meanwhile, knocked The LEGO Batman Movie out of first place in its third weekend. The LEGO movie spin-off brought in another $19 million this week, forming a domestic total of $130 million.
