In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit and Insidious series, The Gift) and the mind of JORDAN PEELE, 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.
Now that Chris Washington (DANIEL KALUUYA, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose Armitage (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 leads him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Peele (Key and Peele) and produced by Blumhouse’s JASON BLUM (Split), as well as QC Entertainment’s SEAN MCKITTRICK (Donnie Darko, Bad Words), QC’s EDWARD H. HAMM JR. (Bad Words) and Peele.
The film Variety calls a “bombshell social critique” that “proves positively fearless,” and The Hollywood Reporter raves is “one of the most satisfying thrillers in years,” co-stars 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.
Joining Peele behind the camera are a talented group of collaborators, including director of photography TOBY OLIVER (upcoming Insidious: Chapter 4), production designer RUSTY SMITH (Meet the Fockers), editor GREGORY PLOTKIN (Paranormal Activity series), costume designer NADINE HADERS (TV’s Into the Badlands) and composer MICHAEL ABELS.
The executive producers of Get Out are RAYMOND MANSFIELD (The Messenger), COUPER SAMUELSON (Whiplash), SHAUN REDICK (The Messenger) and JEANETTE VOLTURNO (The Purge series).
