There are still big wigs in Hollywood who feel that casting anyone other than white people in films is a gamble. So the past year must have been a real shocker for them. Luke Cage broke Netflix. Girls Trip is still receiving rave reviews and killing the box office. Now, Get Out is proven to be the most profitable film of 2017 so far.
SPOILERS AHEAD! Don’t @ me.
Over the weekend, Jordan Peele’s thriller Get Out scared audiences all over the nation with that age old American horror: anti-Black racism. The premise is simple enough: a white girl, Rose, brings home her Black boyfriend, Chris, to meet her parents in a wealthy, white suburb in upstate New York.
Jordan Peele, a comedian most notably known for his half of the famous sketch show, Key and Peele, has apparently always had an interest in horror films. So he went ahead and shocked us all by making one and it looks really, really good.
