Update: Get Out now the 2nd highest grossing R-rated horror film of all time

04.17.2017by: Mike Sprague

UPDATE:

I told you guys it wouldn't take long. 

Jordan Peele's GET OUT is now the SECOND highest-grossing R-rated horror flick of all-time.

That said, it doesn't look as if the film will be able to hit the heights of THE EXORCIST, so consider this the final update on GET OUT's massive box-office haul.

But you never know...

THE EXORCIST...$232,906,145
GET OUT.............$167,547,880
HANNIBAL...........$165,092,268

Epic congrats, Jordan Peele and Blumhouse!

Jordan Peele's debut film GET OUT has been getting all the love these last few months. And rightfully so. GET OUT is a tight, dread-filled paranoia freak out that every film fan (horror or otherwise) needs to check out asap.

Well, the love keeps on rolling in as GET OUT is now not only the highest grossing Blumhouse production ever (besting SPLIT's $137 million take) but at $162.8 million the film is now the third highest grossing R-rated horror movie of all time (domestically)!

Here are the numbers for the top ten R-rated horror movies (in millions; duh):

1. The Exorcist: $232.9
2. Hannibal: $165
3. Get Out: $162.8 
4. The Blair Witch Project: $140.5
5. The Conjuring: $137.4
6. The Silence of the Lambs: $130.7
7. Shutter Island: $128.0
8. Prometheus: $126.4
9. Paranormal Activity: $107.9
10. Black Swan: $106.9

Impressive, right? Especially considering GET OUT is sure to take HANNIBAL's $165 million take by the end of this week. Now you may try to tell me a few of the films in the above top ten "aren't really horror", but whatever. Horror is subjective. 

So where does GET OUT rank on the list of all-time horror films including PG and PG-13? Here's the rundown on those numbers (again, entries are subjective):

1. The Sixth Sense: $293.5
2. Jaws: $260.0
3. Ghostbusters: $242.2
4. The Exorcist: $232.9
5. Signs: $227.9
6. World War Z: $202.3
7. The Mummy Returns: $202.0
8. Hannibal: $165.0
9. Get Out: $162.8
10. What Lies Beneath: $155.4

But what about inflation? We could do this all day. Knock yourself out. The point is; Jordan Peele's GET OUT is a massively successful horror film. From a first time director, or otherwise. Congrats, Jordan!

GET OUT is written & directed by Jordan Peele, and stars Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams (see below), Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Stephen Root, and Catherine Keener. 

GET OUT hits Digital HD May 9th, and Blu-ray and DVD May 23, 2017.
