Box Office: February 24-26, 2017
Get Out premiered in the Number One spot at the box office over the weekend with $30.5 Million. This was surprise. A welcome one. It is great to see an original film premiere this positively at the box office. Get Out is being well received by critics and the average movie-goer as well.
The LEGO Batman Movie was Second with $19 Million for $133 Million so far. John Wick: Chapter Two was Third with $9 Million. The Great Wall was Fourth with $8.7 Million. Fifty Shades Darker was Fifth with $7.7 Million for $103.6 Million so far. Fist Fight, Hidden Figures, La La Land, Split, and Lion rounded out the top ten respectively.
Get Out is a 2017 American comedy horror film written, co-produced, and directed by Jordan Peele, marking his directorial debut. The film stars Daniel Kaluuya, Catherine Keener, Allison Williams, Lakeith Stanfield, Bradley Whitford and Stephen Root, and follows a young interracial couple who visit the mysterious estate of the woman’s parents.
Next week sees the release of Logan, The Shack, Before I Fall, and Wolves. Logan is going to be Number One at the Box Office next week. It is coming in with a lot of positive buzz, even from the jaded. Logan looks different than any other Wolverine film so far (thankfully) and has a hard R-rating that fans have been waiting for. Get Out will most-likely be Number Two at the box office next weekend, followed closely behind by The LEGO Batman Movie.
