:: Spotlight :: Movie Trailer - Get Out

By: Dung Le

Get Out is the directorial debut from Jordan Peele (Key and Peele), who has also written the film. The film stars Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario, Johnny English Reborn), Allison Williams (Girls) and Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year, Good Girls Revolt). A young African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend's mysterious family estate. Get Out is one of the most critically and commercially successful horrors in recent history

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.

Much like M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit, Get Out lures you into an uncomfortable state of uncertainty and ultimately delivers a killer punch line. The outcome is a black satire for the ages.

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).

The film opens in Australia on May 4, 2017.
