‘Us’ Trailer: Jordan Peele’s next work gets a Super Bowl tease
I’m not watching a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g related to Jordan Peele’s next movie. Wanna keep it secret. Wanna keep it safe. But, if you’re so inclined, here’s a new trailer that dropped during the Super Bowl yesterday.
(Actually, it dropped before it played during the Super Bowl, I know, so don’t fucking come at me, pedants.)
Jordan Peele has posted a new teaser for his upcoming film Us to Reddit ahead of its debut during tonight’s Super Bowl.
The first trailer for the film arrived last December, teasing Peele’s long-anticipated followup to 2017’s Get Out. The trailer shows off what starts off as an idyllic family vacation that takes a dark turn when the family encounters a creepy set of doppelgängers — who Peele called “The Tethered” (which give the golden scissors that they carry a bit more of a creepy presence).
This new trailer shows off a bit more of what to expect as Lupita Nyong’o’s character observes that they’ve been seen a weird number of coincidences ever since they began their vacation. “It’s like there’s this black cloud heading in over us,” she says. Peele’s description for the film adds a bit more insight — her character Adelaide Wilson, is “haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences,” which ratchets up her paranoia.
