Jordan Peele’s Get Out is a great move that has made a boat load of money. According to a new report by The Wrap, Get Out is officially the most profitable movie of 2017, raking in a jaw-dropping $217 million in profits and a 630 percent return on investment.
It is important to note that Get Out had a near-perfect 99% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and its status as the highest-grossing original screenplay debut, an honor that Get Out beating The Blair Witch Project.
Get Out grossed $252 million worldwide and cost $4.5 million to make, plus an estimated $30 million marketing budget, which brings us to the $217 million profit. This means Peele is looking at making a ton of money for an indie movie, with his 630 percent Return on Investment.
Following Get Out, M. Night Shyamalan’s Split comes in second. It cost $9 million to make and made $277 million worldwide at the box office, meaning its ROI is an amazing 610 percent. The most interesting part of this story is that Split came out of the same production house as Get Out, Blumhouse Productions. With the successes of these two films alone, Jason Blum, founder, and CEO of Blumhouse is proving his business strategy of combining potentially “risky” scripts with tight budgets can work and sell movie tickets.
It is important to point out that the highest-grossing movie of 2017 is Beauty and the Beast reboot, which made $1.26 billion worldwide, has not been as profitable as Get Out or Split. It cost $160 million to make, making its ROI much lower to around 400 percent.
