Just before the debut of his critically acclaimed directorial debut, Get Out, Jordan Peele (Key and Peele, Keanu) swings by the Nerdist Podcast! He chats with Chris about their mutual love of old horror films, collecting pop culture memorabilia, and where the idea for Get Out came from. He also discusses the social and political commentary in the film, how the subject of race has informed his creativity, and how Key and Peele become a fan favorite show.
More about Get Out:
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. 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 never could have imagined. The film also stars Bradley Whitford (The West Wing, Transparent) and Catherine Keener (Adaptation, The 40-Year-Old Virgin).
Get Out hits theaters Friday, February 24, 2017. Read our Sundance review of the film here.
