Get Out 2017 movie reviews

Warning: Major SPOILERS for Get Out ahead

As one half of famed comedy duo Key & Peele, Jordan Peele has long been a leading voice in entertainment, but his directorial debut, Get Out, has fast emerged as his tour de force.

With only a $4.5 million budget, it’s already a bona fide hit.

Mark Hamill

In 2015, fans couldn’t help but notice something missing from the trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The focus was on new characters Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega). There were also shots of new villain Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the adorable droid BB-8. As for those craving some nostalgia, there was plenty of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and General Leia (Carrie Fisher) to satisfy. But there was someone whose absence was quickly noted and speculated about. Nowhere in any of the trailers was there even a single shot of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) even though he was the main character in the original …
