Jordan Peele’s Thriller ‘Get Out’ Gets Trailer, February Release Date

Universal has set a Feb. 24, 2017, release date for Jordan Peele’s thriller “Get Out,” starring Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, and Bradley Whitford.

Get Out” is directed by Peele from his own script. Producers are Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (“Donnie Darko”), Peele, and Edward H. Hamm Jr.

Kaluuya and Williams play a couple who have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating as she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with her parents, played by Keener and Whitford. The boyfriend 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.

The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (“X-Men” series), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery, Betty Gabriel (“The Purge: Election Year”), Marcus Henderson (“Pete’s Dragon”), and Keith Stanfield (“Straight Outta Compton”).

“Get Out” will open against Paramount’s “God Particle,” Open Road’s “Sleepless,” and Lionsgate’s “Rock Dog.”

Universal also debuted the trailer Tuesday.
