The 26th annual MTV Movie Awards was not its usual event this weekend as it was the first time it combined movie and television categories and removed gendered categories. Beauty and the Beast was the big winner of the night, taking home multiple statues and being the inspiration for the event’s opening number.
Browsing: GET OUT
MTV is giving their annual entertainment award show two big changes this year. Plus, Jordan Peele’s hit horror film Get Out leads the nominations with six nods.
Watching Get Out was like watching an episode of The Twilight Zone or Black Mirror in that it gave us a story that felt fictitious enough to entertain, but real enough to freak us out. Peele cleverly uses the horror genre to craft a film that is a delightfully demented mashup of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? and Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
From writer-director Jordan Peele, a young African American man visits his white girlfriend’s family, with horrifying consequences.
Kaluuya will star as a young African-American man who visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, to be played by Girls star Allison Williams. Jason Blum is producing under his Blumhouse banner, along with QC Entertainment’s Sean McKittrick and Edward H. Hamm Jr.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, though sources confirm that the film will center on an African American man who visits his white girlfriend’s family estate.
Peele is both writing and directing the project, which has been pitched as a new spin on the horror-thriller genre. QC Entertainment is also producing. The film centers on a young African American man who visits his Caucasian girlfriend’s family estate.
