Jordan Peele, who’s mostly known for his comic skills, has written and directed the psychological thriller Get Out, and we just got the first trailer.
Get Out stars Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario, Black Mirror), Allison Williams (Girls), Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones and Catherine Keener. In other words, you’ll be seeing a lot of familiar faces in this trailer.
Still, what truly got to me about this trailer wasn’t the many familiar faces. No, it’s the feeling you get. This is one of the best executed trailers I’ve seen in a long time. The trailer itself takes you on a roller coaster ride and leaves you feeling like you just got thrown head-first through an awesome horror short film.
Here’s the official plot for Get Out:
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.
This movie marks Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, and it looks like he’s starting out with a very strong style. Also, I have to say it’s pretty cool for him to do this with an interracial horror thriller. Especially, when he’s otherwise known for comedy.
Oh yeah, and Peele himself is a black man, who recently married a white woman, so he’s touching on a subject close to heart. His wife is Chelsea Peretti, who is also a comedian. Right now, she’s probably best known for her role on the FOX show Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
The movie is produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (Donnie Darko), Peele, and Edward H. Hamm Jr.
Get Out is released in US theatres on February 24, 2017.
