In Universal Pictures’new film ‘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.
Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Peele (Key and Peele) and produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (Donnie Darko, Bad Words), Edward H. Hamm Jr. (Bad Words) and Peele. The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men series), Stephen Root (No Country for Old Men), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (The Carmichael Show), Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year), Marcus Henderson (Pete’s Dragon) and Lakeith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton).
On Wednesday February 22nd, Terrell Thomas had a chance to sit and talk with writer/ director Jordan Peele on about “Get Out” and the hidden messages in the film. When I first watched the film, I didn’t catch the horrific fear, I thought to myself, “Wow, this seems like the life of a black man in America”. I appeared to be true. Jordan Peele spoke with us on the creation of the film and its true origin. Jordan Peele created the film giving it a interesting spin on racism in America and for ages different culture have wanted traits of Black people without receiving the harassment and injustice that many blacks and minorities face.
“Get Out” hits the big screen on Friday, February 24th. The interview was conducted by Terrell Thomas. The interview was shot by Antoin Martin.
