Jordan Peele Dropped a New Creepy Trailer for His Horror Thriller US
There are going to be a good amount of new movie trailers dropping tonight during the Super Bowl, but director Jordan Peele got ahead of the game and shared the new trailer for his upcoming horror thriller Us. He shared the trailer on Reddit, and it offers some creepy new footage from the movie.
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, stars Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway.
Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family.
After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
Peele recently talked about the film and explained that it was inspired by one of his favorite Twilight Zone episodes – “Mirror Image.” I’m excited for this movie, and I’m expecting it to creep us out!
Us will be released in March 22nd, 2019.
