I don't care where (just far)
Following his financial and critical success with “Get Out,” Peele returns with a new horror movie in “Us.”

Starring Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke


Looks creepy as hell. Honestly imo it looks great.

I didn’t know much about it before seeing this. A couple things I read after watching this is apparently the bad guys are referred to as “The Tethered” and I saw a quote from Peele that unlike “Get Out,” this movie “isn’t necessarily about race.”

I love the use of “I Got 5 On It” in this trailer. Brilliant.

I liked Get Out. For me it wasn’t a 10 or a masterpiece but I enjoyed it. Solid thriller. Peele seems to have a pretty creative mind for filmmaking. I’m looking forward to this.

There’s already a number of interesting theories. Some speculation in my spoiler tag.

The mom seems to be the center of whatever is going on. They don’t have a young daughter so I’m assuming the girl scenes in the trailer are the mom as a child. The rabbits look like some lab experiment? Peele’s choice of song probably isn’t a coincidence as he seems like a “everything for a reason” guy. Only thing is there’s 4 in the family, not 5, so I’m not sure what “I got 5 on it” would be relevant to. Unless the girl isn’t the mom as a child? Peele’s hashtag being used with the trailer is “WatchYourself,” so obviously there’s some inner demon element to the monsters. Not sure if they will end up supernatural or psychological in nature. The Tethered use scissors and I guess the metaphor will be what they are trying to cut free from?

Looks very good and you can tell Peele is continuing to improve his craft. Hopefully they nail the ending this time.

Was greatly disappointed in Get out. So many rave reviews, like it was the greatest horror movie ever made, and it was lame as fuck, especially in the horror department. Should´ve marked it as witty satire loaded with social commentary instead because scary it was not.

“Us” definitely seems like a more conventional take on horror/scary than “Get Out.”

I agree that “Get Out” really isn’t that scary outside of a scene or two. I still give it a 7 out of 10 overall.

Agree though I don’t think it’s a bad movie but it’s nothing special as well.

This one looks great imho. Genuinely excited for this one.

Its a psychological thriller, not a slasher film.

I don't think it looks very good, but it could be the case of the trailer avoiding twists and deeper themes.
I liked 'Get Out' a lot, but I don't think it was the best movie I saw that year like some people do.

Doesn't looks scary but I totally dig the premise. I am willing to suspend my disbelief like I did with "A Quiet place" for this movie.

I personally did not like the trailer, I do not know about you, but I think it's too stupid

This looks properly creepy as fuck! Really want to see this! So many horror movies are just run of the mill cookie cutter films, but this looks different, as was Get Out.

He is a popular comedian. Most known for making shows on Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Heidecker
My favorites...

Tom Goes to the Mayor

Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!

On Cinema

Oh he made a commercial for the Purple Mattress people (actual advertisement for a real company)

Ah! So this is where the weird/funny stuff in the movie will be coming from. This dude seems to have a quirky style to his comedy.

When I started watching the trailer I went through four stages:
(1) “Creepy killer hobo from beach” movie.... uh huh, yawn.
(2) “Strangers” rip off... meh.
(3) Creepy doppleganger kid moving like a spider!

(4) I think I want to see this.:unsure:

If Jordan Peele being involved is any indication that this will have a more social commentary meta story going on, I'd imagine the whole:
attackers literally being the family, as shown in the trailer
...will play some kind of setup for that.

I'll definitely be watching. "Get Out" got Jordan Peele a "will watch next movie no matter what" pass out of me.

I think this is hardly a spoiler. The title of the movie is called "Us"

And I do agree with you, there will be a lot of social commentary involved.

I'm hoping this will be either better then Get Out or not as overrated. Looking forward to see how it turns out; trailer is all kinds of awesome.

I am interested to see what the plot is but I have a feeling its going to be that they are really the other family(hence the title US) and are doing all the bad things subconciosly. Or it will be like some alternate dimension thing. Either way the two groups are the same people we just don't know what the "evil" group is exactly. But are they really "evil"? maybe its the "good" guys who are the evil ones.

I feel there is something science related, and it seems clear there’s a connection to the mom’s past.

The bad guys called “Tethered” is telling as well

I could see it being something happened in the moms past and the family split into "2" families. The red freaky ones and the normal ones. In the end they find out that the freaky doppelangers are really the family it was all in their heads and they were doing all the bad things. Thats what I get from it. But of course this could all be deception and the plot has nothing to do what I am thinking.
