Peele’s directorial debut, which is now the highest grossing film for an original screenplay, is arriving on Digital HD on May 9, and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on May 23.
Included in the release will be the following bonus features:
— Alternate Ending with Commentary by Writer/Director Jordan Peele
— Deleted Scenes with Commentary by Writer/Director Jordan Peele
— “Unveiling the Horror of Get Out“: Go behind-the-scenes for the making of Get Out
— Q&A Discussion with Writer/Director Jordan Peele and the Cast: Director/Writer Jordan Peele sits down with the cast to answer fan questions on the film hosted by Chance the Rapper
— Feature Commentary with Writer/Director Jordan Peele
So not only will viewers be able to see scenes that did not make the final cut, but also the alternate ending that was reportedly much darker than the one shown in theaters.
This different ending reportedly featured protagonist Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) apprehended by police and sent to jail for the rest of his life for murdering the Armitage family.
Thanks to Get Out Peele recently received this year’s CinemaCon Director of the Year Award. He was given the honor at this year’s CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards back in March.
“With the phenomenon known as Get Out, Jordan Peele has instantaneously become a force to reckon with as a gifted and enormously talented director and filmmaker,” Mitch Neuhauser, CinemaCon Managing Director, said in a statement. “He has audiences and critics around the globe enamored and spellbound, dare I say hypnotized, with his wildly inventive directorial debut, and we are ecstatic to be honoring him as this year’s ‘Director of the Year.'”
Peele is also reportedly in talks to direct the live-action adaptation of Akira, with discussions between him and Warner Bros. described as “encouraging.”
