The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz: 'Get Out' – Hurry Up and Get into Theaters!

Honey Buzz: 'Get Out' – Hurry Up and Get into Theaters!

The world was gifted with a fantastic new trailer for the upcoming movie Get Out, written and directed by Jordan Peele.

You might recognize Peele’s name from Comedy Central, where he partnered with his friend Keegan-Michael Key on the comedy show Key & Peele. Or from the comedy movie Keanu, which he also worked on with Key.

And for his next venture, Peele has created a bona fide… horror film?

Yeah. The same guy that helped write the infamous substitute teacher A-A-Ron skit, fan-boy-ed about Liam Neesens, and portrayed President Obama with an anger translator, is now creating what looks to be a terrifyingly awesome horror film.

What is going on in his brain?! I LOVE IT!

Here’s a quick description of the film from Universal Pictures:

In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and 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 (Daniel Kaluuya,
Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (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 lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

One of the prominent elements that comes through in this trailer is the commentary on the state of race relations in many communities. Though the fear of being discriminated against is heightened with supernatural activity, it is still a real fear that many experience on a daily basis. The story feels modern, relevant, and frankly, needed.

I’m super stoked about this film. I think every Honey is. We can’t wait until February!!

Check out the trailer for Get Out, coming to theaters in February 2017!
