The love was spread around at the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards, with critical darlings such as "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing", "Missouri", "Lady Bird", "Call Me by Your Name", "Mudbound", "I, Tonya", and "The Big Sick" all getting time to shine Saturday afternoon on the sands of Santa Monica, Calif.
On Monday, Universal Pictures announced a release date for the Untitled Jordan Peele Project to hit theaters March 15, 2019, which will arrive just about two years after the release of his sleeper hit-slash-cultural touchpoint Get Out. The new film could be the first of four more “social thrillers” from the red-hot writer-director and Key and Peele alum. At a Blu-ray event for Get Out held on the Universal lot earlier this month, Peele teased — or “approached teasing” — his next film to Yahoo Movies.
Jordan Peele’s biting commentary on race in America-slash-scarefest about a black photographer whose weekend away at his white girlfriend’s country home turns into a nightmare is chock-full of foreshadowing, subtext, and Easter eggs. Internet sleuths have been dissecting the deeply layered film since the film’s release, and Peele himself will occasionally chime in on Twitter to confirm or deny their findings. At this week’s press event for Get Out‘s home release in Los Angeles (the film is now available on digital services and will be available May 23 on DVD/Blu-ray), the writer-director revealed to Yahoo Movies the hidden reference he was most impressed viewers recognized.
Get Out, Jordan Peele’s acclaimed satire of “post-racial America” cloaked in the guise of a freaky psychological thriller, has been the biggest box office surprise of the year. Naturally, we’ve got to wonder if Peele has plans for a sequel. Jason Blum, the horror hitmaker whose Blumhouse Productions was behind Get Out, seemed less sure, even though his company has released multiple entries in its successful Paranormal Activity, Insidious and The Purge franchises.
Daniel Kaluuya, the British actor and star of Jordan Peele‘s hit horror movie Get Out, defended his casting in the film that explores racial issues in the U.S. While Jackson defended his remarks as not a criticism of black British actors but just a question about Hollywood, Kaluuya, who rose to fame in the U.K. on TV shows such as Skins and Babylon and will soon appear in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther and was recently cast as the lead in Steve McQueen‘s Widows, addressed the complaint. “Big up Samuel L. Jackson, because here’s a guy who has broken down doors.
Any fan of the Comedy Central series Key and Peele knows that its eponymous creators and costars, Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele, are big-time horror fans. Peele, it turns out, is such a genre groupie that his acclaimed directorial debut, Get Out — which currently boasts a rare 100 percent approval rating on the critic aggregator Rotten Tomatoes — is a legit frightener. Yes, there’s some dark comedy in the film, about a young black photographer (Daniel Kaluuya) who senses something sinister going on while meeting his girlfriend’s white parents during a weekend away in the ‘burbs.
Jordan Peele does not appear onscreen in his directorial debut, Get Out, the sharply subversive horror film about a biracial couple’s very terrifying weekend in the suburbs. But the Key and Peele alum and sketch-comedy pro did some acting around the movie.
We’re not going to reveal our sources, but word around town is that the kitten actor that has the world fawning in the new Key and Peele comedy Keanu has also become one of Hollywood’s biggest (and most troubled) divas.
If you’ve ever watched Comedy Central’s hilarious sketch show Key & Peele, you know that hosts Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are big-time fans of Liam Neeson… er, Liam Neesons. The Taken actor’s slightly modified moniker entered the pop-culture lexicon thanks to a widely shared clip in which the comedic duo, playing parking valets, ramble on with unadulterated glee about the majestic badassery of “Liam Neesons” movies. “It’s inspired by that world, and certainly John Wick,” Peele told Yahoo Movies (watch above) when asked if Keanu is their take on the Liam Neeson(s) Taken trilogy.
In Keanu, the new action-comedy starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele (of Comedy Central’s Key & Peele fame), we meet arguably the cutest kitten ever to star in a major motion picture. Go on YouTube, though, and you will find dozens, if not hundreds, if not bajillions, of videos claiming to show “The World’s Cutest Kitten.” With that in mind, we screened three of the cutest of the very cutest to Keanu stars Key, Peele, Will Forte, and Jason Mitchell (watch above) to determine the single cutest kitten on the entire internet.
