Trailer For Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Released Christmas Day
Last year Jordan Peele left us spellbound by his poignant and humorous horror flick Get Out. It was so good that the awards discussion was almost immediate. While he didn’t take home the gold for Best Picture, he didn’t exactly go home empty handed. This year he seeks to recreate the magic with a new movie called Us.
Little is known about the horror film but based on the trailer, it seems to be an interesting take on the common home invasion/slasher premise. The killers in this particular movie appear to be the family themselves. As for who, what and why, we’ll have to wait until March 19th, 2019 to get the full scoop. I’m there.
Us stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker. The movie is written, co-produced and directed by Jordan Peele. Jason Blum’s Blumhouse productions is also co-producing. See ya’ll in March.

Brie Larson’s relatively flat performance coupled with stakes that never quite feel personal drag this otherwise enjoyable, if not by-the-numbers, MCU origin story down, if only a little.
While we don’t really know too much about how he’ll be used in the MCU, you can bet that trusting him will lead to nothing but heartache.

This is the best film I’ve seen all year, and I don’t say that statement lightly. A perfect soundtrack, perfect voice acting, rewarding action, a heartfelt story and a necessary retelling.
Don’t let a by-the-numbers plot and cheesy dialogue dissuade you from this CGI extravaganza. What is lost in subtlety is made up for in sheer fun and immersion.
Why in Poseidon’s name is HE getting a movie? Isn’t he the guy that talks to fish and is useless unless he’s in or around water?
On the 6th of December, the Mortal Kombat 11 reveal trailer dropped and it was insanely cool. Based on the events of the previous installments, it seems they’re setting up Raiden to be the villain.
There are similarities in the storyline between X3 and Dark Phoenix and that’s to be expected given the folks behind the pen and the camera, but there’s a lot to look forward to.
