Jordan Peele's 'Get Out' Takes Critics And The Box Office By Storm

For all the couples out there who haven't met the parents, go ahead and skip "Get Out" as the date-night movie. 

Taking the No.1 spot this weekend is "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" through the twisted eyes of Jordan Peele. "Get Out" brought in an estimated $30.5 million in its first week out, beating analysts predictions and making a hell of a profit on its $5 million investment.

Jordan Peele has made his directorial debut with a critical standout. "Get Out" carries the ever-elusive 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes with more than 130 reviews tallied.

"He's really good at this. This movie is scary and funny and super-relevant," Alonso Duralde said on "What the Flick?!"

Being super-relevant while also being super-entertaining is what we've all come to expect from Keegan-Michael Key and Peele's comedy. And it seems that theme has carried over in a big way to Peele's filmmaking.

Being bumped down to No. 2 this week is "The Lego Batman Movie," earning about $19 million, pushing its domestic gross past $133 million.

Lastly, moving back into the top three this week is "John Wick: Chapter 2," bringing in an estimated $9 million in its third week out.

As for next week, "Logan" and the most badass pre-teen girl since "Stranger Things."
