The official trailer for Jordan Peele’s psychological thriller Us was released on Christmas Day. Us stars Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o as a mother of 2 who is tormented by recurring childhood nightmares.
Us is the follow-up to Peele’s Oscar-winning horror film Get Out (2017).
Adelaide (Nyong’o) and her husband (Black Panther co-star Winston Duke) take their 2 kids to their beach house for a family vacation. But their tranquil vacation is disrupted when a strange family of four stops by uninvited.
It doesn’t take long before she realizes the family are doppelgängers of her own family. Her nightmares have come to life. FYI: a doppelgänger is an exact double of oneself that usually appears as a premonition of death.
“They look exactly like us. They think like us. They know where we are. We need to move and keep moving. They won’t stop until they kill us… or we kill them,” says Adelaide.
Adelaide and her husband must fight off their doppelgängers to save their two children. But they’re not alone. Apparently, the entire sleepy seaside town is visited by doppelgängers of other families who cut a swath through town leaving dead bodies in their wake.
Us opens in theaters everywhere on March 14.
