Jordan Peele is back and coming out swinging revealing the trailer for his highly anticipated film “Us”, which is a follow-up to his hugely successful directorial debut with 2017’s “Get Out”, which even snagged Peele and Oscar nomination for Best Picture!
“Us” is slated for release on March 15, 2019 and if the trailer is any indication of what is in store for this film, it is sure to be utterly terrifying.
The trailer gives us our first look at a vacationing family, who are about to encounter some very strange occurrences. Adelaide (Lupita Nyong’o), Gabe (Winston Duke), and their two kids (Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex) have headed to the beach, and Adelaide’s childhood beach house, for some rest and relaxation, but what they find instead appears to be a nightmare come true.
While introducing the trailer to critics a couple weeks before its debut, Peele said that the film wasn’t about race, the way Get Out was, but about the fact that, as the trailer says, “we are our own worst enemies.” Peele also spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the movie, saying he wanted to create “new monster mythology.”
It will be incredibly fascinating to see the actors in this film take on dual roles as doubles of themselves and the film itself is sure to breathe some fresh air into the horror film genre. We can’t wait to check this one out! Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts!
