This weekend is about to introduce a new top film in North America. And it’s a horror film written and directed by … a comedian.

Get Out, the directorial debut of former MadTV and Key & Peele star Jordan Peele, had a solid Friday night at the box office, according to The Numbers.

He commanded $10.8 million and overshadowing the top two films from the past two weeks – The Lego Batman Movie and Fifty Shades Darker.

It hasn’t hurt at all that out of 132 critics surveyed by Rotten Tomatoes all of them – yes, we did say all of them – have recommended the film. There are still more critics to count, of course, but it’s very rare any film gets that kind of wide acclaim.

Even audiences seem to love it, according to the site’s survey of more than 15,500 people, where 86 percent have given thumbs up. Get Out stars Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford. And it’s a very unlikely first major film project for Peele, best known for his impersonations of people like former president Barack Obama.
