Jordan Peele is returning to the big screen -- after sending up gangster thrillers with the hilarious Keanu -- only, this time, he's taking aim at a totally different and equally unexpected genre: Horror. Peele's directorial debut, Get Out, has been earning raves since it made a surprise debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January. We're dying to see it again, and not we want to send YOU to Get Out before everybody else. Here's how.
CinemaBlend and Universal have teamed up for a series of exclusive screenings of Jordan Peele's Get Out, which will be held on Monday and Wednesday, February 20 and 22, in 80 different cities around the U.S. and Canada. This is a great opportunity to get tickets to see this anticipated horror movie before the general public.
How do you win tickets to the movie? Simple. Click the link below, check and see if your city is one of the ones hosting an evening screening, and register. Once you submit your RSVP, you should be able to download the Admit Two, First Come / First Served passes. What are you waiting for?
It is very important that you guys know that even if you have tickets, the theater will be full, and an Admit Two pass DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU A SEAT. So we encourage you to show up at the theater as early as possible, even if you have a pass, to make sure that you are seated and able to see Get Out on either Monday or Wednesday in your city.
Here's the breakdown on Get Out, from our friends at Universal:
In Universal Pictures' Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and 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 (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (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 lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
Get Out will open in theaters on February 24, for the rest of us unable to see it for free at these screenings. We sincerely hope that you live in one of the 80 cities participating in this contest. If you get in, and go to see Get Out, come back around and tell us what you think of it. Good luck, and enjoy the movie!
