We’re big fans of comedian Jordan Peele’s work on Key And Peele, and we were very excited when he announced that he would be writing and directing a horror film. Well, the trailer for Get Out is here and it looks awesome.
The very impressive cast includes Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Betty Gabriel, Marcus Henderson, LilRel Howery and Lyle Brocato.
“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 comes from the Blumhouse stable, and frankly it’s the most excited we’ve been about a Blumhouse movie in a while. Not that we’ve got anything against the Insidious and The Purge movies, but god damn, that trailer got our attention.
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.
