Deadline has reported that the movie totaled up $204 million, with $173 million being earned domestically and over $30 million internationally.

‘Get Out’ – the film

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the smashing success of “Get Out” will allow Peele to direct and write new movies, as well as produce projects through his Monkeypaw Productions banner.

“Get Out” is a Hollywood thriller, starring Daniel Kaluuya, Caleb Landry, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Stephen Root, Allison Williams, and Lil Rel Howery.

The movie follows a black man, Hayworth, who encounters his former girlfriend, Rose Armitage, and an old friend, Chris, in the city. The three plan to visit a farmhouse to meet Armitage's parents, and her brother, Jeremy. Chris is concerned about Armitage as she had not revealed the truth of their relationship. Michael Abels composed the score for “Get Out.”
