As Jordan reposted Indie Wire’s tweet he just simply added the praying hands emoji. Well, Peele’s prayers were answered as “Get Out” has the crossed the $100M mark, making Jordan Peele the first Black writer-director to do so with his feature debut. With an initial budget of $4.5 million, Peele is winning! If you have seen the movie, you know what I mean when I say, Jordan has done something that may release many Black filmmakers from a sunken place.
