Jordan Peele is at it again! On Christmas Day, the Key and Peele star dropped the trailer for his upcoming horror film Us. The trailer, showcasing Academy Award-winner Lupita Nyong’o, Black Panther’s Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker, was received with rave reactions. Us has multiple keywords trending all day on various social media platforms.
Us is about a husband and wife, played by Nyong’o and Duke, who take their children to their beach house. When a group of “visitors” arrive uninvited, things take a turn for the chaotic. As with Get Out, an unexpected twist will shock and surprise viewers.
Peele calls Us a psychological horror and appears to carry the same racial overtones as his 2017 box office hit Get Out. Get Out won the comedian an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay as well as nominations for Best Director and Best Picture.
Christmas Day brought about one confusing trending topic: I Got 5 On It. The hit song by Luniz was trending on Twitter for a large portion of the day. Anyone who was too busy opening presents and managing Grandma may have missed the trailer, not knowing that the classic hip hop song plays prominently. The song may very well become the horror anthem of 2019.
Us hits theaters nationwide on March 15, 2019.
