International Trailer for US is Terrifying–And That’s No Coincidence
We’re less than four weeks shy of the premiere of Jordan Peele’s sophomore creeper, Us. This morning, we got a look at the film’s international trailer, and it really ratchets up the intensity of this doppelgänger-themed horror. It suggests that when too many coincidences begin stacking up, it’s time to keep your eyes peeled for terror!
Check out the international trailer for Us embedded at the top of the article and the synopsis below.
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us follows Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway.
Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family.
After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
