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
