The Get Out trailer offers a first look at Jordan Peele’s directorial debut
Blumhouse Productions and QC Entertainment have just revealed the Get Out trailer! In the player below, you can take a first look at the upcoming horror thriller written and directed by Jordan Peele (Key and Peele, Keanu). What’s more, Get Out now has an official release date. Look for it to hit theaters on February 24, 2017. You can also take a look at the film’s poster in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page.
“People know me for my work in comedy, but now Ill get to focus on my passion for writing and directing horror films,” said Peele earlier this year. “Like comedy, horror has an ability to provoke thought and further the conversation on real social issues in a very powerful way. ‘Get Out’ takes on the task of exploring race in America, something that hasnt really been done within the genre since Night of the Living Dead 47 years ago. Its long overdue.”
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford).
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.
Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Peele and produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (Donnie Darko, The Box), Peele and Edward H. Hamm Jr. (The Box, Bad Words). Blumhouse’s Couper Samuelson is executive producing alongside QCs Ray Mansfield and Shaun Redick.
Get Out also stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men series), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (The Carmichael Show), Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year), Marcus Henderson (Pete’s Dragon) and Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton).
