Dinner for One: Jordan Peele Reflects on the Real Horrors at the Heart of ‘Get Out’

This week, something a little different! We're giving you the first in an all-new series we're calling "Dinner for One" -- essentially, a single, almost unedited conversation with someone amazing. This time, comedy -- and now horror -- genius Jordan Peele chats with Rico about "Get Out," the new film he wrote and directed. The 'social thriller' tackles race head-on, with a totally different tone than a typical horror film. Plus, we've got an exclusive new trailer for an *ahem* absolute must-see movie. Cheers!
