Lupita Nyong'o Shines in the New Trailer for Jordan Peele’s Film 'Us'

See how fans have been reacting on Twitter to the upcoming film

Even for those of us that don't care about the horror genre, a new film from Jordan Peele is always something to be excited about.

On Christmas day, Peele dropped the trailer to his upcoming film Us which looks even more epic than Get Out. The new project will be coming out on March 15 2019. The film features Lupita Nyong'o as Adelaine and Winston Duke as Gabe, a cute couple on a vacation to their summer home in California where everything will inevitably go terribly wrong.


Unlike most trailers that give away the whole story in a few minutes, the plot is not that clear from the scenes showed. All we know is that there will be a lot of blood caused by a mysterious pair of scissors. If the movie is as crazy as this trailer makes it seem, you won't be looking at scissors the same way next year.

Anticipating how fans might compare this to Get Out, Peele said that Us will not be about race. Describing the new film he said, "For my second feature, I wanted to create a monster mythology. I wanted to do something that was more firmly in the horror genre but still held on to my love of movies that are twisted but fun."


While the trailer has some horror movie tropes that could be repetitive like the theme of monsters breaking into a house, Peele's films tend to give intense dark twists to predictable moments. Fans didn't quite know what the monsters in the trailer represented leading to a lot of speculating on twitter in anticipation of the new film.

The excitement around the songstress and her ever evolving sound, look and feel is very real in "Never Learned how To Cope + Feed Me."

Eritrea-born singer-songwriter RIMON has just released a live performance of her tracks "Never Learned How to Cope" and "Feed Me." The Amsterdam raised and London based songstress delivered a psychedelically beautiful performance live on her YouTube page in such a way that we questioned our sobriety.

The session, originally performed for Eurosonic, acts as a rebirth for the artist as her musical and visual journey continues to evolve before our eyes—while teasing new unreleased music to look forward to. It seems as though those around the singer agree, as she was then honored with a Music Moves Europe award.
