Jordan Peele's socially conscious horror film Get Out scared off last week's holdovers Cheap Air Max 90 Sale , beating expectations to grab the top spot at North American box offices on its debut weekend, an industry group projected on Sunday.

Peele's feature directorial debut follows a young African-American man (Daniel Kaluuya) who's so nervous about meeting the family of his white girlfriend (Allison Williams), he fails to realize the menace lurking at their mansion.

Generating critical acclaim on top of rave reviews from audiences, the UniversalBlumhouse film - which cost under $5 million to produce - raked in $30.5 million, box-office tracker Exhibitor Relations predicted.

Last week's winner Cheap Air Max Sale , the 3D, computer-generated action and comedy film The Lego Batman Movie, came in second with $19 million on its third week for a total of $133 million. Featuring the voice of Will Arnett as the caped crusader, the Warner Bros spinoff of the The Lego Movie follows Batman as he tries to save Gotham City from being taken over by the Joker, voiced by Zach Galifianakis.

Also in its third week Cheap Nike Air Max 95 Clearance , Lionsgate's John Wick: Chapter 2 came in third with $9 million in revenue for a three-week total of $74.4 million.

The thriller stars Keanu Reeves as a hitman forced out of retirement in order to repay a debt to a fellow hired killer with whom he has signed a blood oath.

The Great Wall took fourth place with $8.7 million following a disappointing debut last week. Universal's lavish action thriller starring Matt Damon - filmed with a $150 million budget and billed as the first English-language production shot entirely in China - follows European mercenaries searching for black powder who get caught up defending the Great Wall of China against a group of monsters.

Fifty Shades Darker, Universal's second installment of the steamy Fifty Shades franchise based on the novels of E.L. James, came in fifth with $7.7 million for a total of $103.6 million in three weeks.

Rounding out the top 10 are:

Fist Fight ($6.4 million)

Hidden Figures ($5.9 million)

La La Land ($4.6 million)

Split ($4.1 million)

Lion ($3.8 million)

President Donald Trump brought two dozen manufacturing CEOs to the White House on Thursday and declared their collective commitment to restoring factory jobs lost to foreign competition.

Yet some of the CEOs suggested that there were still plenty of openings for U.S. factory jobs but too few qualified people to fill them. They urged the White House to support vocational training for the high-tech skills that today's manufacturers increasingly require — a topic Trump has seldom addressed.

"The jobs are there Cheap Nike Air Max Clearance , but the skills are not," one executive said during meetings with White House officials that preceded a session with the president. (Reporters were permitted to attend the meetings on the condition of not quoting individual executives by name.)

The discussion of job training and worker skills is a relatively new one for Trump, who campaigned for the White House on promises to restore manufacturing jobs that he said had been lost to flawed trade deals and unfair competition from countries like Mexico and China.

Again and again, Trump brought up that theme in his meeting with the CEOs.

"Everything is going to be based on bringing our jobs back," Trump said. "The good jobs Cheap Air Max 95 Clearance , the real jobs. They've left."

White House officials said Trump heard the CEOs' concerns about a shortage of qualified workers and said he supports efforts to increase training for factory jobs. But they didn't provide details.

"We were challenged by the president to ... come up with a program to make sure the American worker is trained for the manufacturing jobs of tomorrow," Reed Cordish, a White House official, said after Thursday's meetings.

Trump officials said the meetings were intended to provide the White House with ideas in four areas: taxes and trade; regulatory reform; infrastructure; and the "workforce of the future," including advanced training. Proposed solutions may be included in future presidential executive orders or legislative proposals Cheap Air Max 90 Clearance , a White House official said.

The gathering occurred amid the same kind of jovially informal atmosphere that has prevailed in several meetings Trump has held with CEOs in the four weeks since his inauguration. Most of the executives thanked the president for reaching out to them, and several expressed gratitude for his interest in meeting them face to face.

"All the CEOs are very encouraged by the pro-business policies of President Trump," Andrew Liveris, CEO of Dow Chemical, said afterward outside the White House. "Some of us have said this is probably the most pro-business administration since the Founding Fathers."

Other CEOs at the meeting included Jeff Immelt of General Electric Cheap Air Max Clearance , Doug Oberhelman of Caterpillar, Inge Thulin of 3M and Denise Morrison of Campbell Soup.

One executive said in discussions with White House officials that his company has 50 participants in a factory apprenticeship program, but could take 500 if enough were qualified. But he said that in his experience, most students coming out of high school lack the math and English skills to absorb technical manuals.

Some economists argue that businesses should offer higher pay and adopt more training if they can't find the workers they need. Higher pay would draw more young people into the field.
