BOX OFFICE HIT ‘GET OUT’ IS PREDICTED TO HAVE THE HIGHEST PROFIT MARGIN💰📈 OF ANY 2017 FILM. 🎥
Actor/super-Producer Jordan Peele’s gripping psychological thriller Get Out looks almost guaranteed to have Hollywood’s biggest profit margin this year.
The surprise hit was only moderately marketed by distributor Universal Studios and was produced on a budget of $4.5 million (R60 million) in association with Blumhouse Pictures
It proved to be a massive success in theatres, bringing in more than $251 million (R3, 34 billion) worldwide during a time of the year that traditionally does not see many breakout films.
The massive profit margin can be traced to a $175 million (R2, 33 billion) domestic box office figure with the remainder coming from overseas.
While not the most profitable movie of 2017 like the Fate of the Furious which made $1.24 billion (R16, 5 billion) on a $225 million (R3 billion) budget it does sport a 5577% profit margin, well over any other movie made this year. Looking at the rest of the year’s line-up, it’s most likely that there is no other film that will end up doing so well.
Horror films with such large profit margins and wide releases end up with a sequel in just about every circumstance.
Jordan Peele has talked about the direction he’d like to take with Get Out 2, which will be coming to theatres March 15, 2019. If that proves remotely as popular as the original, we will probably see another franchise being formed, which is what happened with the classic “Blair Witch Project” and “Paranormal Activity”.
