Universal dropped its trailer for Jordan Peele’s new film ‘Us” starring Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke (Black Panther) which is set to arrive in March and boy did it look scary.
Lupita and Duke star as parents who take their two kids (Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex) on vacation to the mother’s childhood beach house. When the son spots a creepy-looking figure on the beach, his family doesn’t seem to care. But while back at their house, more appear — and they bear an uncanny resemblance to… them.
“They’re us,” Lupita’s character says.
Peele explained the basis for his creative plot to Entertainment Weekly in unveiling the first look at the film.
“I wanted to forge this new mythology that explored our duality and the duality of the characters,” he said. “To the actors, I knew this was the ultimate fun because who doesn’t want to play two roles in a movie; when you’re tired in one, you get to jump into the other. But I think what was a fun challenge for actors, was finding the connections between the characters and their counterparts.”
Us opens in theaters March 15th, 2019.
