New International Trailer for Jordan Peele's US Offers Some Crazy Creepy New Footage
There’s a new international trailer for Jordan Peele’s upcoming horror film Us that has been released, and it actually might be the most terrifying trailer for the film yet! It’s cut together really well and offers a good amount of creepy-ass new footage that is sure to give some people the chills.
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.” He also revealed that the evil doppelganger family in the film call themselves The Tethered and he explained to EW:
“I think the main idea that went into writing this film is that we’re our own worst enemy, and that idea created this monster, The Tethered. I wanted to forge this new mythology that explored our duality and the duality of the characters. To the actors, I knew this was the ultimate fun because who doesn’t want to play two roles in a movie; when you’re tired in one, you get to jump into the other. But I think what was a fun challenge for actors, was finding the connections between the characters and their counterparts.
Us will be released in March 22nd, 2019. Enjoy the new trailer!
