Looking at the trailer quite a bit could go wrong and especially with Get Out having been produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (Donnie Darko, Bad Words) a visit to the more sinister, creepy and downright frightening town upstate could be one romantic weekend away with girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) would wholeheartedly regret. A predominately white town, run by a white cult with a strange control of the African-American’s of the town… Could Chris be next on their list?
Get Out is a very socially aware thriller which is highly topic of our modern times, written and directed by Jordan Peele (Key and Peele) joining Williams and Kaluuya on the cast list is Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men series) as Jeremy, Rose’s younger brother; Stephen Root (No Country for Old Men) as Jim Hudson, an eccentric art dealer who takes a liking to Chris; Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (The Carmichael Show) as Rod Williams, Chris’ best friend and the amateur detective who refuses to believe his buddy is safe; Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year) as Georgina, the Armitage’s housekeeper; Marcus Henderson (Pete’s Dragon) as Walter, the family’s groundskeeper; and Lakeith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton) as Logan King, a young guest at the weekend celebration who seems oddly out of place with his elderly wife.
Get Out will be released in UK cinemas March 17th 2017.
