Get Out director Jordan Peele has made history, becoming the first black director to make $100 million with his debut film.

Despite the recent releases of Logan and Kong: Skull Island, Get Out stayed strong at the box office in its third weekend of release. According to The Wrap, the popular horror made an estimated $21 million, which brought its domestic total up to $111 million.

The future looks bright for Peele.

Peele wrote, produced and directed Get Out with a budget of just $4 million. The film also set a new studio record for Blumhouse, breaking their previous record for Split. Much of its success has been down to its fantastic reviews, which includes an impressive score on Rotten Tomatoes.
