First trailer and one sheet for Get Out arrives online

Universal Pictures have recently released their first trailer and one sheet for Jordan Peele's (Keanu) directorial debut Get Out.

Jordan Peele is perhaps best known as one half of comedy duo Key & Peele, or from this year's Keanu, but he has long harboured ambitions to make horror thrillers.

Get Out finds Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) at the 'meet the parents' milestone of dating. She invites him for a weekend getaway upstate in New York with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford).

While Chris initially reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, he soon has real reason to worry. As the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

Peele's comedy work has always tackled themes of race and society, and his first stab at a horror thriller (which he also wrote) promises the same thing. Get Out hails from Blumhouse Productions and will be scaring US audiences from 24 February. There is no news of a UK release date as yet.
