Daniel Kaluuya was desperate to unveil Get Out at its first screening on the Sundance Movie Pageant in 2017 — however based on the actor, he wasn’t requested to participate.
Whereas showing nearly as a visitor on The Graham Norton Present earlier this month, the 31-year-old actor detailed to host Graham Norton the backstory behind why he wasn’t in attendance on the pageant’s secret screening of the hit movie.
Requested by Norton, 57, if it have been true that he wasn’t invited, Kaluuya advised the host, “No, they did not invite me, bro. They did not invite me.”
“[During] the Sundance world premiere [of Get Out], I used to be in Atlanta as a result of I used to be capturing [Black] Panther,” he continued. “… And I cleared my schedule and I used to be like, ‘Yo, I actually wanna do it.’ After which [I] simply did not get an invitation. I wasn’t invited.”
“So I used to be simply in my mattress when someone texts me, ‘Oh, it is finished rather well,'” Kaluuya added. “I am like, ‘Alright, that is cool. That is alright.'”
