Oscar-Winning Director Jordan Peele Shares Chilling Trailer for “Us”

Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Evan Alex, and Shahadi Wright Joseph in "Us"

The news that Get Out director Jordan Peele would be creating a new movie was well received to say the least. Now, Peele has shared the first chilling trailer for the feature, which is titled “Us.”

The trailer begins with a family going on holiday, which starts out pretty ordinary until one of the children wonders off. Following his scolding, creepy things start happening and then a mysterious masked family silently show up outside the house one night.

At this point, it looks as if the movie will be another ripoff of The Strangers, but naturally, we expect more from Peele. Our faith pays off when it is revealed that the family of strangers are in fact identical to our protagonists. The son gasps: “They’re us.”

It is not clear from the rest of the trailer why this has happened and what the impostors want. What is clear, however, is that the movie will be a terrifying psychological thriller with quite possibly more twists and turns that last year’s Oscar winning script Get Out.

Us will be released in cinemas in March. Let us know if you will be watching in the comments below.
