A mother and father take their kids to their beach house, expecting to enjoy time with friends, but their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some visitors arrive uninvited.
The phrase “most anticipated” gets thrown around a lot in modern cinema, but few genre films have garnered as much attention pre-trailer release as Jordan Peele’s latest, Us. With most details under wraps until now, this two and a half minute peak is quite the Christmas present to horror fans.
Starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke (Black Panther), Shahadi Wright Joseph, and Evan Alex as a vacationing family who is seemingly stalked by replicas of themselves, it appears Us will be a home invasion film with some sort of supernatural twist. If there’s anything we can glean from Get Out, Peele’s ability to take standard tropes in the horror genre and add something extra to innovate will be present here. Peep the Rorschach title cards and Alex’s Jaws shirt.
Though it is unclear what their involvement in the film will be, other actors include Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker.
Us will hit theaters on March 15.
