Daniel Kaluuya

The Daily Beast blog interviewed comedian Jordan Peele about how President Donald Trump influenced his directorial debut.

The first-time filmmaker debuted his racial horror film Get Out at a “surprise midnight screening” at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

Get Out is about a black man (Daniel Kaluuya) whose white girlfriend (Allison Williams) invites him to visit her "liberal" parents for the weekend. The catch is she didn't tell her parents her boyfriend's race.

The movie draws comparisons to the 1967 classic Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?, starring Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn.

Peele, who sounds paranoid, says the psychological manipulation between the movie's main character and Catherine Keener reminds him of President Donald Trump and how he supposedly manipulates the minds of Americans.

These are manipulations that we’ve seen work before to very disastrous consequences—the manipulation of fear, the gaslighting, and, quite frankly, the bold-faced lying. At the center of this movie is the fear that someone is pulling the wool over your eyes, and the question is: How deep does the pit go? How bad is it? But you’re absolutely right with the projection. I noticed that, too. Sometimes, when Trump brings something up out of thin air, it really makes me question him. There was one point where, out of nowhere, he said, “I want to take a drug test with Hillary. I’ll pass a drug test, she won’t.” Literally no one was ever talking about this, and it was such a bizarre thing. I know he supposedly doesn’t do anything, but that raised the question in my head of: Does this guy do drugs? Why would he even talk about this?

    I can't figure out the angle of this. Is it meant to be comical/satirical or like an honest to God horror flick with fantasy demons as yt ppl. I'll wait on the reviews

  • Yardgirl

    I just got free tickets to a premier viewing. I don't do horror but this one looks interesting so I might just go.

  • nicelyput32

    I wouldn't go see this ish if someone paid me.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    I'm going to see this. It looks like it's going to be good. I love a good suspense/scary movie.

    SN: Manipulators are only as strong as their support systems, which they usually have to constantly manipulate others, just to build. Only when a person is standing on their own, without a huge support system, will you see their truth strength. Anyone can APPEAR stronger or tougher, than what they really are, with a bunch of people backing them.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    visit her “liberal” parents for the weekend.----> I ain't liberal from nary a person in the town, but Imma let you have that, cause it fits in with the False Narrative you trying to push into truth.

    And there is much more than a "Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?" theme in this, just by the previews alone. Ain't nobody go missing and get hypnotized in "Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?"......stop trying to minimize the writer's message.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Your "self imposed ignorance" is comical.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Saw some reacting to the trailer of this movie.....all you hear (from some not all) is reverse racism, why they paint whytes out to be evil, this is going to call racial tensions, why is Peele not being funny and adding to racial division, etc.

    I am like, Wait, that is what y'all got from this? CTHU, then I am going to see it maybe even twice.

  • Malcom Flex

    Not going but I did see Hidden Figures.

  • Empress

    It was reported that Russia had over 1000 online trolls and even paid blogs for positive posts on Trump, I hope Sandra got her coins. LOL

  • Empress

    I think thats Kris Jenner @1:15 they probably based the screen play on her and her daughters.

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm not Hillary and Bill Clinton. I wouldn't take money from foreign governments.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I actually thought the president was hilarious. I laughed out loud when he dragged CNN's reporter. ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He was very funny! I laughed out loud when he said, “Tomorrow they will say ‘Donald Trump rants and raves at the press. I’m not ranting and raving, you’re just dishonest people.” ??

    Nope

  • God is working on me!

    I any wait for it to be loaded. I'm a fan of Keele and the main star Daniel. You should see his episode on Black Mirror. But unfortunately I have to wait until this is uploaded, I don't pay to go to the theater. Waste of money.

  • kekeb

    Huh? I was keeping up until the Hillary Clinton drug test part

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    This is a real black horror film. Crazy shit

  • Quitedeliteful

  • Yoni7

    Not me. I love my PEACEFUL sleep. It bothers me when folks sleep with the TV on. It gets in their spirit and THAT is not good.

  • Yoni7

    I can handle that. Thanks. LOL

  • Emily post

    Nerve to mention demeaning black women then you call him her slave master??????
    Some Black people actually like the Current President... The only people on a plantation in politics are Black Democrats.

  • Emily post

    A black liberal talking about someones mind being manipulated... Thats a good 1.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I don't like sleeping with the TV on either. Especially if it's on the channel That is featuring something really criminal or horrific.

  • GUY A LAICHE

    I totally Agree, and they love being manipulated

  • TheWildChild

    Also, Is that Dave Chappell in this movie ?

  • Brook York

    This movie....smdh. I won't go to see it.

  • Taylordanes

    Yep I sure did call her that because he is cracking the whip and folks are still allowing him to...You must not be privy to the numerous post on this blog that DEMEAN women of color and uplift white men in power ...

    And please respond to me once you learn that just because someone is NOT a republican does NOT automatically make them a democrat..There are not just two parties out there........good day

  • Taylordanes

    especially with her click and bait tactics....all she has to do is demean a black woman and here we come defending ourselves,....and there she goes to the bank.....some folks will do anything for coins...chile

  • Emily post

    what I am not privy to is people so ignorant that they claim to be so self righteous yet so disrespectful to their ancestors.
    It's the wrecklessness Of your words that you attack her by attempting to demean her for supporting a political candidate that is a white male but what is the other option? A white female?
    So you are better for supporting a white female. You have the nerve to say Slave master and belittle someone for not backing the other option which is supporting the real party of slavery.... your lack of logic is mind boggling.
    Note to poster: I will respond to you when and if I feel like it. You don't give me instruction.

  • Tynamight

    That actor's eyes...

  • Taylordanes

    You do not make an ounce of sense...Just because someone does not support Chump DOES NOT mean they support Hillary..... and she is not just supporting a "white male candidate"..... she is spewing hate and racism just as he is.........So no sweetheart I am not better because I support a white female (which I do not)..I am better because I uplift MY queens and stand against injustice. I do not use my platform to create click and bait post that belittle black women and uplift racist.....

    Just because there were two options DOES NOT mean someone has to support either....You don't give any of them your energy or efforts..... and that is where your logic is OFF.....You don't have to pick the lessor of two evils,.....YOU support those who love and support all people...those who are trying to distribute the wealth and make sure everyone can eat....

    And the term slave master has your panties in a bunch but the blatant disrespect for BLACK PEOPLE in general doesn't???? BYE EMILY.......you have the most arse backwards way of rationalizing and taking things out of context

  • Emily post

    Yawwwnn at your rhetoric you have no rationale...

  • Emily post

    yawning once again... You did exactly what you accused someone else of doing... its nothing backwards about my thinking at all. Your post was backwards and I just called you on your BS..

  • Taylordanes

    No hun you can't comprehend anything I stated.... nor addressed anything I mentioned....... you disntncall me out because you are using #alternativefacts like our president and the blog owner...you have no issue with black women or people being demeaned ... Your full of shyt and a troll..good day troll ???

  • Taylordanes

    And your using #alternativefacts ...... yawn is right troll

  • Emily post

    Ohhh go away already... LOL

  • Taylordanes
