Universal Pictures has released the official trailer for Us, Academy Award winner Jordan Peele’s next horror movie – which we first reported on back in May. The two-and-a-half minute trailer introduces us to a family of four on vacation at the beach, when the son briefly goes missing. After the boy is found, the family returns to their vacation home only to find a murderous doppleganger family waiting for them.
The film is written & directed by Peele and stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Evan Alex, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Madison Curry, and Cali & Noelle Sheldon.
Us will be released to theaters nationwide on Friday, March 15th.
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o), a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (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 (Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, and 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: doppelgangers of themselves.
