Universal Pictures has released the international trailer for Academy Award winner Jordan Peele’s forthcoming social thriller Us, featuring new clips from the film while also giving us a preview of how the doppelgängers will arrive.
The international trailer doesn’t reveal anything particularly new about the film’s plot, but it’s loaded with even more creepy imagery and hints at the madness to come in the movie proper. At the same time, this preview calls direct attention to the strange coincidences that occur in the film’s first half and set its overarching storyline in motion. In doing so, however, it mostly raises more questions about the Wilson clan – the family that’s forced to confront bizarre doppelgängers of themselves while taking a summer vacation in the film – and just where their scissor-wielding, blood-thirsty doubles came from, anyway. Not to mention, this trailer yet again includes shots of several rabbits locked away in cages somewhere, for reasons that have yet to be even partly explained.
Though Us is the followup to Jordan Peele’s acclaimed Get Out, the footage and promotional campaign for the new horror movie suggests that Us will be far more terrifying than Peele’s previous film.
Written, directed and produced by Jordan Peele, Us stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Anna Diop, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Kara Hayward, Tim Heidecker and Shahadi Wright Joseph. It is scheduled to be released on March 22 in theaters everywhere.
