With only three days left to the release of Jordan Peele’s Get Out follow-up, Us, the hype surrounding the horror film continues to ratchet up with every brand-new clip and film review that hits the web.
Adding fire to the fan frenzy for Peele’s second film is a brand new clip, which is aptly titled “Fear.” In it, Adelaide (Lupita Nyong’o) confides to her husband, Gabe (Winston Duke), that a series of coincidences have taken place during their idyllic beach getaway. The suspense-stricken Adelaide takes these slew of coincidences as a sign that her doppelganger, who Gabe dubs as “The Mirror Girl,” may come back to haunt her. Although Adelaide feels as though he doesn’t believe her, Gabe reassures that all will be well. While the clip doesn’t give away a lot, it does foreshadow the impending doom set to befall the Wilson family. The clip also showcases a tender side to Winston Duke’s character that we’ve had yet to see thus far.
Since its premiere at SXSW, Us has commanded rave reviews and still stands at 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Lupita Nyong’o’s performances as Adelaide Wilson / Red have been singled out for praise, with some outlets already speculating that she could earn a second Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in 2020.
Us will be released in theaters.
Here’s the clip of “Fear” below.
