By Creative Media TimesThe trailer for Jordan Peele’s latest horror movie, “Us” dropped Christmas day and its already a hit, scaring up nearly 8 million views on youtube and has already gone viral.
“They look exactly like us,” Lupita Nyong’o’s character says on the trailer. “They think like us. They knew where we are. We need to move and keep moving. They won’t stop until they kill us. Or we kill them.’’
It is no surprise that Jordan Peele’s next feature is already one of the most highly anticipated 2019 films, given that his 2017 directorial debut “Get Out” was both a critical and boxoffice smash.
Like “Get Out”, the upcoming horror thriller is both quirky and creepy. Here we see a family on an innocent relaxing getaway when cissor-wielding doppelgängers shows up and took their vacation to a terrifying turn.
Thanks to the remix of “I Got 5 on It,” the trailer is genuinely twisted, scary and bizarre, the right kind of mix for another potential hit for the actor director and his production collaborators Jason Blum and Sean McKittrick, who had another success this year in “BlacKkKlansman.” It helps that the film’s plot was not fully spoiled and kept vague by the trailer.
Also in the film are Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tim Heidecker, Shahadi Wright,and Evan Alex.
Universal Pictures is set to release the film on March 15, 2019.
