Get Out originally had a different - and much darker - ending

Jordan Peele's horror movie GET OUT is breaking all kinds of records, so it's no surprise that the upcoming DVD is pulling out all the stops. What's most interesting, however, is the fact that film originally had a much darker, bleak ending. Here's what Peele had to say about it:

In the beginning when I was first making this movie the idea was, ‘OK, we’re in this post-racial world, apparently. That was the whole idea. People were saying, ‘We’ve got Obama so racism is over, let’s not talk about it.’ That’s what the movie was meant to address. Like look, you recognize this interaction. These are all clues, if you don’t already know, that racism isn’t over ... So the ending in that era was meant to say, look, ‘You think race isn’t an issue? Well at the end, we all know this is how this movie would end right here.’

It was very clear that the ending needed to transform into something that gives us a hero, that gives us an escape, gives us a positive feeling when we leave this movie ... There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the audience go crazy when Rod shows up.

That makes sense. I imagine when he was originally writing this script, it was during the time people, like he said though racism was over because "Obama was president". But with everything that's happened since then - and the open racism that bubbled to the surface in the interim - a bit of hope and levity was very welcome. In fact, the way it ended was one of the things I really loved about the film.

Anyway, here are the other features we can expect:
