Damn you Jordan Peele. For those thinking that Get Out was gonna be the only time that guy from Key & Peele was gonna scare the shit out of you, looks like that was wrong. The first trailer for Us has dropped and the results are unsettling (While also expertly using Luniz’s classic “I Got 5 On It”). Here’s the synopsis:
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe, and their two children 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, 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.
A Black family attacked by their creepy doppelgängers? Is this a metaphor for Black on Black crime? Probably not. Starring Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke (M’Baku from Black Panther). In theaters March 15, 2019.
