Jordan Peele To Receive Huge Honor At CinemaCon For 'Get Out'

If you've seen Get Out, you already know how deserving this guy is of so many awards.

And now he'll be able to add Director of the Year to his collection. The director will be honored at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on March 30th, a little over a month after the film's February 24th release date.

That's huge.

Peele's thriller Get Out has grossed over $133 million at the box office so far... emphasis on SO FAR.

The managing director of CinemaCon said, “With the phenomenon known as ‘Get Out,’ Jordan Peele has instantaneously become a force to reckon with as a gifted and enormously talented director and filmmaker. He has audiences and critics around the globe enamored and spellbound, dare I say hypnotized, with his wildly inventive directorial debut, and we are ecstatic to be honoring him as this year’s ‘Director of the Year.’”


Congratulations, Peele.
