Get Out Is Coming To Netflix This February
January is nearly over, yep guys, we're getting there - the longest month in history is nearly done and how our bank balances will thank us.
Not to wish time away but as we close to door on the first month of 2019, Netflix have announced all of the news series and films that are on the horizon for February and Get Out is on the list.
The American horror film hit our cinema screens in 2017 and we've not had a good night's sleep since. Slight over-exaggeration but it scared the shit out of each and every one of us.
It has an impressive 98 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which says of the film: "Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride."
It tells the story of Chris (played by Daniel Kaluuya) going to meet his girlfriend Rose's (Allison Williams) parents for the first time. It's awkward from the get-go, as he encounters some incredibly weird people in upstate New York, gradually exposing the racial tension at the heart of modern American society.
Now, people who have seen the movie will know that everything descends into utter chaos. But, despite the film having a mildly happy conclusion, director and writer Jordan Peele had a different ending up his sleeve. Check it out here:
In the alternate ending, you can see Chris's mate, Rod, ask him what happened so he can get out of prison, but Chris is either unable or unwilling to relive the experience. While it appears that the protagonist is still traumatised by nearly being lobotomised, he still gives off the impression of 'what does it matter'.
This ending is a much more obvious look at the current issue of racism in the US, specifically between law enforcement and black people. Peele told IGN: "I knew that the only way to make this movie work, besides getting the tone right, was that the plot would have to reveal the judgements and the presumptions we would have about the movie are in fact our presumptions."
Regardless of the ending, the movie was a raging success. Its budget was estimated to be around $5 million (£3.84 million) but has gone on to rake in $229 million (£176 million) at the box office.
And if you are still yet to see it, remember - February 24.
