Jordan Peele's Us Revealed in Intense First Trailer
Your own worst enemy is yourself.
By Chris Morse
As promised, director Jordan Peele has pulled back the curtain on his next film, Us, here on Christmas day and unveiled the first trailer for his next "original nightmare." Despite the initial information we have heard in earlier reports, there was still quite a bit to unwrap in the movie's full reveal, showcasing a high-intensity kind of horror that we can definitely get behind.
Set in present day, the film follows a woman who returns to her beachside childhood home with her husband and two children for a summer getaway. Growing increasingly more paranoid about something bad befalling her family, her fears prove to be grounded as four figures holding hands arrive at the home. Soon, the family is pitted against doppelgängers of themselves in a terrifying battle for survival.
Us stars Lupita Nyong (Black Panther, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 12 Years a Slave) as Adelaide Wilson and Winston Duke (Black Panther) as her husband, Gabe, along with Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, and Noelle Sheldon.
Written and directed by Jordan Peele, the film is set to hit theaters on March 15th, 2019.
