The directorial debut by comedian Jordan Peele, Get Out is a satirical horror which shines a spotlight on racism in America. Get Out scored 100 percent from its reviews, earning it a coveted title within the movie industry that few have matched.

That's a great return on the $4.5 million it cost to make and well above estimates in the run up to the weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Still building its box office take, The Lego Batman Movie earned an extra $19 million in its second week, nabbing second place.

Lego Batman isn't likely to catch up to The Lego Movie, the 2014 predecessor that it spins off from. Finally, Collide, in over 2000 theaters, piled up just over $1.5 million in its opening weekend.

One can expect Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick: Chapter Two to show up in the final top five as well, rounded out by The Great Wall or, possibly, either Hidden Figures or La La Land in one last catch-up round before Sunday's Oscars. It might have been the only movie that actually did well on the box office.
