Over the weekend Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, “Get Out,” surpassed the $200 million worldwide box office mark. The film, released in February, has grossed $173.8 million domestically and $30.5 million internationally.
Peele, who is the first black writer-director behind a $100 million debut feature, becomes one of six black directors with $200 million-grossing films. That list includes F. Gary Gray, Tim Story, Keenan Ivory Wayans, John Singleton and Clark Johnson. He is definitely in great company.
