Janelle Monáe faces a dark fate in the 'Antebellum' trailer.
Lionsgate just dropped a trailer for 'Antebellum,' and to be honest, it looks pretty scary, even though its fairly short on details. The official synopsis doesn't tell us all that much either:
Successful author Veronica Henley (Janelle Monáe) finds herself trapped in a horrifying reality and must uncover the mind-bending mystery before it’s too late.
It looks like Henley may be going back in time to the Civil War (thus the title), or is maybe in some kind of alternate reality, but we won't know for sure until the movie opens. What we do know is that Gabourey Sidibe, Jack Huston, and Jena Malone also star in the film. The trailer boasts that the film comes from the producer of 'Get Out' and 'Us,' so audiences can probably expect a horror story about a modern black woman finding herself in slave-owning South. And it should go without saying how terrifying that might be.
'Antebellum' will be in theaters April 24, 2020.
