Get Out Alternate Ending

Even though most of the buzz around theatrical releases right now is centered around Logan, let’s not forget that there’s a perfectly good horror film called Get Out that’s also begging to be seen.

Directed by Jordan Peele (one-half of the comedic duo known as Key & Peele), the film follows Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and Rose (Allison Williams) a young interracial couple who are about to partake in a weekend getaway. The only problem is that this is the first time Chris is meeting Rose’s parents (Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener), and there’s something that’s not quite right about their overly accommodating behavior. But Chris never could have prepared himself for what’s really going on.

We don’t want to spoil any of the surprising twists and turns that Get Out makes, but Jordan Peele recently discussed the existence of an alternate ending that would have taken a much more bleak, dark turn. Well discuss the Get Out alternate ending after the jump, but beware of major spoilers from here on out. Read More »

Allison Williams interview

Jordan Peele‘s directorial debut, Get Out, is not a movie that’s easy to put in a box. There are laughs, thrills and scares alongside genuinely intimate and dramatic scenes. Peele can get a big laugh and a scare in the same moment, without the two ever clashing. Tonally, Get Out is eclectic while being solid as rock and a part of the credit goes to the cast.

A part of what makes Get Out effective as a thriller is that before things get progressively worse for Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and Rose (Allison Williams) during one terrifying weekend, Peele and the cast makes you believe in these characters. They feel like a real couple, so when there’s danger, it feels real. Like Peele, the actors have little trouble navigating the different tones at play in Get Out.

Williams, who you can now see in the final season of Girls, recently spoke with us about her experience making the film, her character’s pretty nutty arc, and how a team on the same page can do their best work. Get Out is a tough movie to discuss without spoilers, which this interview does contain. There are warnings below, but you might be better off reading the interview once you’ve seen the film.

Daniel Kaluuya interview

In Get Out, Daniel Kaluuya doesn’t play the typical thriller/horror movie lead. The character makes some wise decisions as things go wrong. He feels real, his backstory feels real, his relationship feels real, and his emotions feel real. Kaluuya isn’t playing a cardboard character waiting to get the ax; he plays somebody the audience understands and roots for.

With his directorial debut, Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) has given Kaluuya a role with a genuine interior life. The actor is known for his time on the popular drama Skins, but he’s had some memorable performances over the past few years, including a supporting role in Sicario and an impassioned performance in Black Mirror.

I spoke with Kaluuya, who also has a part in Marvel’s Black Panther, about working with Peele, on-set improvisation, and the significance of the “sunken place” in Get Out.

With his directorial debut, Get OutJordan Peele exhibits remarkable range as a writer and director. His film, which comes from Blumhouse Productions, works on multiple levels. Whether he’s nailing a laugh or a scare, shooting an intimate scene between a couple by a lake, or just delivering the unexpected, Peele hardly feels like a rookie in the director’s chair.

He started writing Get Out three years ago, but his journey towards getting behind the camera has been a long time coming. The co-creator of Key & Peele has been dreaming of helming a movie for many years. Now, he finally has done it with a thoughtful thriller that’s always slyly moving at full speed towards an unforgettable third act.

Below, check out our Jordan Peele interview.

get out

The midnight secret screening at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival was probably the worst kept secret in the festival’s history: It was the premiere of Jordan Peele‘s directorial debut Get Out, a Blumhouse-produced horror movie that takes on the monster of racism in modern times. Imagine Meet The Parents mixed with The Stepford Wives. It’s smart, visceral, thrilling and, of course, funny.

Get Out Trailer

Two years ago was when we first got some real details on Jordan Peele‘s Get Out. The Key and Peele star said he was interested in making a horror movie that “does jump off of racial fears” and “the fears of being a black man today.” With his directorial debut, Peele wanted a protagonist he doesn’t see in horror movies. The director has made a horror movie that explores race, but he’s also made a horror movie that looks wild, violent, a little funny, and with something to say.

Below, watch the Get Out trailer.

Jordan Peele horror movie

Key and Peele is over, and we’ve known that the shift away from that show is in part thanks to Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele‘s interest in jumping to films.

Now more details about that movie have been revealed, and the Jordan Peele horror movie is a collaboration with Blumhouse called Get Out.
