Get Out looking to hit #1 this weekend

If you’re a fan of horror films, this is a big weekend, as one of the most anticipated genre films in quite a while is hitting theatres. Will it make any impact at the box office? Here’s our prediction:


Get Out is the new thriller from Blumhouse and Jordan Peele, who is best known for his work as one half of the comedy duo Key and Peele. The trailers for this clearly socially conscious film have been absolutely stunning, and should be big drivers in getting a diverse audience to check out the film this weekend. Combined with a current 100% fresh standing at Rotten Tomatoes and its clear that Get Out is the film to beat. Look for a first place debut with $29 million.

As for the rest of the top five, The LEGO Batman Movie will drop to second place with $20 million. Fifty Shades Darker will grab third with $10 million. The Great Wall will continue to be a great bomb in fourth place with $9 million, while John Wick: Chapter Two will close things out right behind it in fifth place $8.5 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) Get Out – $29 million
2) The LEGO Batman Movie – $20 million
3) Fifty Shades Darker – $10 million
4) The Great Wall – $9 million
5) John Wick: Chapter Two – $8.5 million

Be sure to check back on Sunday to see how the weekend turns out!
