‘Get Out’ Most Profitable Film Of 2017
What sunken place?!
Jordan Peele‘s box office smash, Get Out, is officially the most profitable film of 2017.
TheWrap reports the film starring Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams had an incredible 630 percent return on the investment to make Get Out.
Deep into summer, only one other film this year has come close to that kind of return — and it’s from Blumhouse, the same production company that delivered “Get Out.” M. Night Shyamalan‘s “Split” had a 610 percent ROI.
TheWrap calculated an estimate for the combined production budget and marketing costs for the top 25 grossing films this year so far, and Blumhouse founder and CEO Jason Blum’s strategy of taking creative risks within tight budgets is paying off.
Peele was given a $4.5 million budget to work with on “Get Out,” while M. Night Shyamalan had $9 million to make “Split.” Combined with an estimated $30 million marketing budget, that gives “Get Out” an ROI percentage of 630 percent with its worldwide gross of $252 million, and “Split” an ROI of 610 percent on a global haul of $277 million.
Congratulations to Jordan Peele, the cast and crew for making an epic film!
