It will be hard for Jordan Peele to top his directorial debut, "Get Out," which enthralled moviegoers and snagged numerous accolades back in 2017. But his next flick, "Us," certainly looks like it's up to the challenge, as evidenced by a sinister new poster.
Peele himself debuted the one-sheet on his Twitter page on Thursday, captioning the poster with the cautionary phrase, "Watch yourself." And it appears that fans should heed the filmmaker's warning.
The poster depicts a figure, clad in red, clutching a pair of scissors in his hands, one of which is sporting a leather glove. It's a curious, enigmatic image that doesn't offer any outright significant meaning, but paired with Peele's words, it gives us the creeps nonetheless.
So far, little has been revealed about "Us," except that it reportedly follows two couples, one black and one white, played by Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker. The red-sporting person on the poster is certainly giving us some "Handmaid's Tale" vibes, so Moss's presence in the cast seems particularly appropriate. Whether or not that was Peele's intention is another story.
Audiences will find out soon enough. "Us" is due in theaters on March 15, 2019.
