Can there be another film like Get Out?
After the success of original film Get Out, we just knew that Jordan Peele would follow-up with a movie that would do just as well if not even better and boy did he deliver! Jordan Peele released the trailer for his new movie, Us, on Christmas day as promised and it looks like there may be another Oscar coming!
The full synopsis was also released as well:
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.

First of all, making “I Got 5 On It” by Luniz sound so creepy is genius! There is also so much symbolism in the movie: the scissors, the rabbits, and even the all white room. I can’t wait to see this film!
The film drops on March 19, 2019.
