Academy Award winner Jordan Peele is following up his hit horror film Get Out with next year’s Us, which sounds like a home invasion slasher movie. The poster suggests the same, displaying a gloved hand holding a pair of golden scissors. If you look closely, you’ll see the handles are actually two people’s heads standing back to back (a nod to the film’s first poster).
The trailer is dropping on Christmas Day.
“A mother (Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o from Black Panther, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and 12 Years a Slave) and a father (Winston Duke from Black Panther) take their kids to their beach house expecting to unplug and unwind with friends (including Emmy winner Elizabeth Moss from TV series The Handmaid’s Tale). But as night descends, their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some shocking visitors arrive uninvited.”
The cast also includes Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Madison Curry, Cali Sheldon and Noelle Sheldon.
Universal has dated Us for March 15, 2019.
