Jordan Peele Drops Bone-Chilling Trailer For New Horror Movie 'Us'

Adjust Comment Print

Lupita Nyong'o and Winston Duke, who both starred in Black Panther (and were classmates at Yale University) are reunited on screen as Adelaide and Gabe, two parents taking their children for a relaxing vacation away with slightly tipsy friends, one of which happens to be Elisabeth Moss. Cursed with the lingering anxiety that something awful will befall her family (due to past trauma), Adelaide's worst fears come true when a group of hand-holding, scissor-carrying folks appear in the driveway of the beach house.

The Us trailer, which features the Wilsons coming face to face with the terrifying figures who eerily look like them, prompted amusing online reactions as people joked through their fear about facing a doppelgänger. You can check out the Us trailer below, and catch the film in theaters on March 15, 2019!

"We're our own worst enemy, and that idea created this monster, The Tethered". Peele has this to say about these elements in the movie.

A new nightmare from the mind of Academy Award victor Jordan Peele is about to scare the hell out of everyone. He posted the trailer for Us on Tuesday morning as what is perhaps the scariest gift his fans will get this year. I wanted the sense of an adventure that was not necessarily a claustrophobic one - that's a feeling that turns me off watching. "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 exhausted in one, you get to jump into the other".

"[It was] very important for me was to have a black family at the center of a horror film", Peele told the outlet at a screening last week.

Today, we see that nightmare come to life.
