The first trailer for Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ arrived on Christmas day giving an eerie look at a family facing a whole new kind of evil…themselves…
Following his Oscar winning work on ‘Get Out’, Jordan Peele is back with another horror film titled ‘Us’ set to release on March 15, 2019.
The new trailer dropped on Christmas day with a dope soundtrack (“I Got 5 On It” by the Luniz) and a truly frightening premise as a family faces off against the ultimate evil — doppelgangers of themselves.
Here’s the synopsis for ‘Us’:
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.
It’s a creepy trailer, which should only help to set the stage for what will unfold in this new horror experience from the mind of Jordan Peele.
Check out the trailer and get ready for ‘Us’ in theaters in March 2019.
