Jordan Peele is back, with a trailer for his latest film, Us. Following the smash-hit success of his last film, Get Out, we’re looking forward to this. Via Vanity Fair:
For the last few months, Jordan Peele has played coy on the details surrounding his upcoming film, Us, his follow-up to Oscar-winning debut Get Out. A few details rose to the surface; it was going to be another social thriller, and it was going to have a very wispy poster and a titillating tagline: “A new nightmare from the mind of Academy Award winner Jordan Peele.” It was later reported that Us would star Black Panther pals Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, as well as Elisabeth Moss; Nyong’o and Duke were set to play a couple, with Moss playing one half of another couple. And that was about all the public knew.
But with the film’s March 2019 release date creeping ever closer, it’s become more and more difficult to keep the film’s secrets under wraps. Now /Film has reportedly acquired the plot synopsis, which has apparently been sent out with recent test screening invites for the project.
Representatives for Peele have not yet confirmed this plot synopsis, though it certainly sounds like something that Peele may have dreamt up. Unplugging might be necessary from time to time, but it’s a nightmarish concept when left in the hands of a horror aficionado. It also sounds just in line with Peele’s plans: the director has said in the past that Get Out is the first in five planned social thrillers he hopes to release in the next decade.
Five!? We can’t wait.
