Jordan Peele – of the comedy team Key and Peele –has written and directed Get Out, a super-nutty, racially-tinged, psychological horror movie about a young black man going to meet his white girlfriend’s family. Things go from goofy and sweet to HOLY CRAP WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON over the course of the two-and-a-half minute trailer.
That’s not all the trailer shows: the two-minute clip manages to cram enough plot points in that it makes watching the final movie seem slightly pointless, explaining the family’s unsavory hobbies, as well as showing the fate of other black people in the community. If you’re aiming to watch Get Out when it hits screens in February, maybe only watch the first minute of this trailer — that’s more than enough to make Peele’s proper horror debut seem properly interesting.
Nah, watch the whole thing.
The movie stars Catherine Keener, Allison Williams, Daniel Kaluuya, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, and will be released on February 24th (via The Verge)
Seriously, watch it now. You won’t regret it.
