Jordan Peele Teases US with new Trailer

Just ahead of the Super Bowl, Jordan Peele dropped a new trailer for his upcoming film US, which is set to make its world premiere at the SXSW film festival in Austin next month before opening nationwide on March 22nd, 2019.

While there's not a ton of new information in the second trailer for Peele's film, we do learn a few more possible details about the plot. Nyong'o's Adelaide Wilson remarks that "You know how sometimes, things line up? Coincidences? Since we've been up here, they've been happening more... and more. It's like there's this black cloud hanging over us." Perhaps this line is suggesting that it's not necessarily the family that's being targeted in this film, but rather, the location the Wilson family has chosen for their vacation spot that's bringing them such ghastly terrors.

Peele recently revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that he was partially inspired by an episode of THE TWILIGHT ZONE titled "Mirror Image" about a woman who comes face to face with her doppelganger in a train station. If you're getting as antsy as I am about Peele's sophomore endeavor, this piece of 1960s television might be worth checking out on Netflix.

Here's the official synopsis for US:

"Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, 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 about 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 to discover the silhouettes of four figures standing in their driveway. Us pits an ordinary American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves."
