If you woke up and thought today would be a great day to get another look at Jordan Peele's upcoming new film, Us, then you're in luck! Earlier this morning, the filmmaker took to Twitter and revealed the latest trailer, which he posted himself on the newly-created Monkeypaw Productions subreddit. Always one to deviate from what others are doing, it's definitely a new approach to marketing his film and this was something we were excited to see shared today.
This latest trailer includes some new footage that wasn't present in the film's debut trailer, which released to much excitement back on Christmas day, but is overall shorter than the earlier preview we unwrapped during the holidays. Regardless, it still highlights the family's terrifying encounter with doppelgängers of themselves quite marvelously and it's looking like this film will have a sky-high level of intensity when it finally makes its premiere this March.
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 22nd, 2019.
