Jordan Peele Says 'Get Out' was Inspired By Obama Era: 'Post-Racial Lie'

Jordan Peele flashes a smile alongside Catherine Keener and Daniel Kaluuya while attending their Get Out: Variety Screening Series panel presented by FilmStruck on Monday (October 30) in Los Angeles.

The 38-year-old writer-director, Catherine and Daniel were also joined by co-star Lil Rel Howery as they opened up about the critically acclaimed film.

“The movie was written in the Obama era, which I’ve been calling the post-racial lie,” Jordan recently revealed (via Vanity Fair). “We were in this era where the calling out of racism was almost viewed as a step back… [Donald] Trump was saying that the first black president wasn’t a citizen… There was this feeling like, ‘You know what, there’s a black president. Maybe if we just step back, [Trump] can say his bullshit. No one cares. And racism will be gone.’ That’s the era I imagined this movie would come out in.”

“By the time the movie came out, people were ready to engage in thinking about [racism], and what better way to do it than with a popcorn movie,” Jordan continued. “If you do a lecture about race or some social issue, people feel like maybe you’re talking down to them, like you’re forcing your views on them. If you lead with entertainment, if you get the laugh, if you get the scream, if an audience is propelled to stand and cheer because something happens, then the point is already made and the audience is left to think about why that happened. What truth did that hit on? The moment the police car shows up at the end of this movie, we all know what’s going to happen. The fact that we all know what’s going to happen is the point. That’s the catharsis.”

FYI: Jordan is wearing Citizens of Humanity jeans.

The trailer for the upcoming horror film Get Out was just released and it looks terrifying!

The movie was written and directed by Jordan Peele and stars Sicario‘s Daniel Kaluuya and GirlsAllison Williams.

Here is the synopsis: 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 (Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). 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.

Also starring in the movie, which was produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, are Caleb Landry Janes and Straight Outta Compton‘s Keith Stanfield.
