The countdown is on!
We just figured out the plot behind Jordan Peele's anticipated film Us and now we've gotten word that the official trailer will arrive on Christmas day.
The film's leads are Black Panther's Winston Duke and Lupita N'yong'o who play a couple that head out on a family getaway that goes badly when some “shocking” uninvited visitors make an appearance. The film is set at the family's beach house where friends are also invited to join along on the city outing. Other stars in the movie are Elisabeth Moss, Anna Diop, and Kara Hayward.
Aside from the trailer that arrives in days, Jordan has also dropped off the official poster for the film. The photo simply shows a man in a red suit holding a golden pair of scissors. We're not too sure what to predict from the poster, but considering Jordan's past projects we can only expect another smash hit from the writer/director.
Us isn't the only film Jordan's working on. He previously talked about his plans to recreate Candyman as a "spiritual sequel."
"The original was a landmark film for black representation in the horror genre," Jordan said. "Alongside Night of the Living Dead, Candyman was a major inspiration for me as a filmmaker — and to have a bold new talent like Nia at the helm of this project is truly exciting. We are honored to bring the next chapter in the ‘Candyman’ canon to life and eager to provide new audiences with an entry point to Clive Barker’s legend."
