The release date for Jordan Peele’s upcoming film, which Universal has set for Christmas 2024, is taking shape.
On December 25, 2024, the Oscar winner’s untitled fourth movie will be released. Additionally, a horror film from Jordan Peele’s Monkey Paw label will debut on September 27, 2024, according to a Monday morning announcement from Universal.
Disney most likely planned for the box office juggernaut Avatar 3 to come out on December 20, 2024, a few days before Peele’s upcoming film. The fourth picture by Peele has not yet been given a cast or any additional information.
Before making a dramatic career turn to become a top director with Get Out, the 2017 film that won him an Oscar for best original screenplay, Peele established himself in the comedy scene. Get Out was one of the few horror films to receive significant nominations for awards, and its star Daniel Kaluuya was nominated for best actor, director, and picture.
With Us (2019) and Nope (2018, a third collaboration between Peele, Blumhouse, and Universal), Peele followed it up.
Peele is one of the few filmmakers who can get an original idea into theatres and whose name alone is a magnet for fans in a time when it is harder than ever to draw people to theatres and in which the landscape is dominated by franchises and sequels. At Universal, Peele has a lucrative, five-year contract that he signed in 2019.
Us brought in $256.2 million and Nope brought in $171.2 million, bringing Get Out’s overall revenue to $255.4 million. One of the few genres now a reliable box office draw is horror, the genre in which he made his breakthrough with Get Out.
Peele in an interview with The New York Times last year“Everyone was saying that movie theaters as we know them might be gone—for me, the theatrical experience is everything. It’s my link to myself and other people in so many ways and has taught me to love film,” Peele told The New York Times last year. “So I just wanted to make a movie that people would have to go to the theater to see.”
