Jordan Peele Delivers A Christmas Present, First US Trailer!

We promised you there will be one Christmas present you’ll love and Universal Pictures has kept their promise. Behold the First (UK) Trailer for Jordan Peele’s US the home invasion thriller follow up to Get Out!

Since Peele announced he was making another film, potentially a sequel to his debut, if not a film in that similar genre. We were teased with cryptic clues and today we get the biggest and best tease, the first trailer, a new tale of terror!

US tells the story of a family that goes on holiday. Adelaide (Lupita Nyong’o), Gabe (Winston Duke), and their two kids (Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex) heading to her childhood beach house. As the family head to the beach with friends, things start to take a sinister turn when sees the family return to their beach house to be met by four people…themselves!

This is spine-chilling and the trailer has several easter eggs, red flags that things aren’t going to be well. The most notable is Adelaide son’s Jaws T-Shirt, be afraid be very afraid. The horror seems to be from her past what happened we don’t know but we can’t wait to find out!

After sending shockwaves across contemporary culture and setting a new standard for provocative, socially-conscious horror films with his directorial debut, Get Out, Academy Award®-winning visionary Jordan Peele returns with another original nightmare that he has written, directed and produced.

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.

The film also stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Madison Curry, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon, Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker.

US Will be released in the UK, Ireland and the U.S from 15th March 2019.
