Jordan Peele’s new horror thriller Us recently had its big premiere at SXSW and audiences and critics have been loving it. I haven’t seen or heard anything bad about this movie yet so it looks like Peele will once again deliver the goods.
We’ve got two new clips from the movie today. The first is called “Gabe Retreats Online” and it features Winston Duke’s Gabe trying to scare the invaders away, but things don’t go as he planned.
The second clip is called “Adelaide Tries to Explain Her Fear” and in this clip Lupita Nyong’o is trying to describe her feelings regarding a strange development of events in her life.
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, 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 going 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. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
Us will hit theaters on March 22nd, 2019.
