Watch First Trailers for Jordan Peele's Horror Movie 'Get Out' and Jamie Foxx's Action-Packed 'Sleepless'

Oct 05, 2016

Get Out

When Jordan Peele's Get Out was first announced last year, all we knew was that it followed an African-American man (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) who pays a visit to the family estate of his Caucasian girlfriend (Allison Williams, TV's Girls). What could we expect from the cocreator and star of the very funny Key and Peele sketch comedy TV show?

Now the first trailer has been released and it's not at all what we might have anticipated. Indeed, Get Out looks to be an entirely dramatic and entirely unsettling fright flick. Check it out. 

Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford play Williams' parents and they bring a special level of menace beneath their benevolent appearance. What family secrets will be revealed? Judging by the edgy, unnerving trailer, the weekend getaway quickly becomes a very dangerous environment for the hapless young couple.

See the new poster below. Get Out will open in theaters on February 24, 2017.

Sleepless

Meanwhile, on the action thriller side of things, Jamie Foxx stars an undercover police officer in Sleepless. Foxx is under investigation by internal affairs, so he's already in hot water when his teenage son is kidnapped in the aftermath of a heist gone wrong. That means Foxx must solve the crime, save his son and clear his name, all in one crazy, sleepless night.

Here's a taste of the action.

Foxx is a charming and reliable presence on the big screen and he's joined here by a strong cast that includes Michelle Monaghan (above with Foxx), Dermot Mulroney, Gabrielle Union, David Harbour, Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris, Scoot McNairy and Octavius J. Johnson.

We have the first poster below. Sleepless will race into theaters in the spring of next year.
