Terrifying First Trailer for Jordan Peele's Horror Thriller US!
What better way to celebrate Christmas day than with a trailer for Jordan Peele’s new horror thriller Us, which actually looks pretty damn unsettling and terrifying!
This trailer actually gave me chills, and the story goes in a direction I was not expecting. The movie looks like it’s gonna be another incredible chilling horror film from Peele, and I can’t wait to watch it!
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.
Nyong’o previously said that this family’s journey “turns into this relentless nightmare that taps into [Adelaide’s] deepest fears and ours as well — the idea that we might be our own worst enemies.”
Us will be released in March of 2019.
