Jordan Peele Honored As CinemaCon’s Director Of The Year
You may know him as half of the comedy duo Key and Peele, but he’s also the breakout director of 2017. It may only be March, but Peele made his directorial debut with Get Out, breaking stereotypes of the scary black man and let black men be scared. Mesmerising fans all across the world, Peele is definitely a force to be reckoned with.
Peele will be receiving the award on March 30th, at CinemaCon’s Big Screen Achievement Award’s at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. In the first four weeks of its release, Get Out has grossed over $133 million dollars off of a $4.5 million. CinemaCon managing director had nothing but good things to say about Peele, stating:
“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 to Jordan Peele on his award and his instant classic film, Get Out. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more Peele films in the near future.
