TV & FILM
brian-mcgee - December 26, 2018
While attending an afternoon screening of Vice yesterday (it's fantastic, btw), I saw the first trailer for Jordan Peele's follow-up to his Oscar winning film Get Out, simply titled Us. Peele is apparently not done in the horror genre just yet, with what appears to be another parable about the plight of African-Americans in this country.
Starring Black Panther co-stars Lupita Nyong'o and Winston Duke alongside Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker (of all people) in a vaguely ominous horror film wherein a family is confronted by what appear to be evil versions of themselves. It's all a bit vague, to be honest, but I'm fine with that. Peele now has the sort of name recognition that he doesn't have to reveal all of his tricks in one trailer.
My hope is that this is it for trailers for this flick. Speaking of Vice, that film only had one trailer and that was extremely beneficial to the film as a whole. Not every movie needs four trailers and fifteen TV spots. I get why movie studios want to make sure that their films stay top of mind, but they don't need to reveal the entire film in the process.
Us hits theaters on March 15. Fingers crossed there won't be any more trailers for it over the next few weeks.
