Comedian and director, Jordan Peele, gave fans an early Christmas gift, when he released the trailer for his new film, Us. The film stars Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke as they take their family vacation to the beach.
“It has been a labor of love. It is a horror film. I dedicated a lot of myself to creating a new horror mythology and a new monster.I think that monsters and stories about monsters are our best ways of getting at deeper truths and facing our fears as a society”, stated Peele.
“[It was] very important for me to have a black family at the center of a horror film. It’s also important to note that this movie, unlike Get Out, is not about race. It is instead about something I feel has become an undeniable truth. That is the simple fact that we are our own worst enemies.”
Us is set to hit theaters March 15, 2019!
