Get Out tells the tale of a young black man in an interracial relationship with a white girl. The couple travels to his girlfriend’s parent’s house which is on a large wealthy estate where everything seems……..eerie.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, it could be in some theaters or you can wait until next month when it comes out on DVD! Jordan Peele, the director of the action thriller offers an alternate ending when you purchase the film.

Peele’s movie has raised a lot of awareness about social issues and how racism manifests into our society. “It echoes an existing fear that many black individuals, who reside in a predominantly white society, face. It perfectly encapsulates the quiet apprehension that lies under the surface, especially when confronted with white people’s assertions of power.” Source

Peele is also the first black director to earn $150 million from a movie debut. He spent about $5 million creating the project.

The only film to ever make this achievement was the 1999 “The Blair Witch Project, which made $140 million.
