We are so very, very excited about Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out, and there’s a new poster with an awesome tagline courtesy of IMPAwards.
Best known for his work in comedy as part of Key And Peele (and their hilarious film Keanu), Peele has broken into the horror genre with his feature debut as a writer-director with Get Out. The film stars Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Keith Stanfield, Caleb Landry Jones, Betty Gabel and LilRel Howery.
“In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation. Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods). At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.”
Get Out is released on 24 February 2017 in the US. No UK release date has been announced. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
