LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Comedian Jordan Peele's directorial debut, "Get Out," did even better in its first weekend in theaters than initially projected. The micro budget thriller pulled in $33.4 million - about $3 million higher than what was estimated on Sunday by the studios.

It easily topped the box office and unseated "The Lego Batman Movie" from first place. The "Lego Movie" spinoff earned $19.2 million in its third week in theaters.

Lionsgate's "John Wick: Chapter Two" took the third-place spot with $9.4 million, bringing its total to $74.8 million after three weeks, while "The Great Wall" added $9.1 million in week two. In fifth place, "Fifty Shades Darker" grossed $7.8 million, bumping the picture past the $100 million mark domestically.
