The phrase “we are our own worst enemy” is a theme that plays a huge part in Jordan Peele‘s Us. The filmmaker’s sophomore effort walks that fine line between horror and social satire. It examines the human condition and uses scares as a vehicle to take a look at the monsters that lurk beneath our skin and what would happen if it were ever to crawl out of it. The end result is another genre-bending film with something to say. While allegories and metaphors have been a part of the fabric of horror films, Peele knows how to deliver that message with terrifying precision. Check out my full review of Us here below.
It may have taken a while to get to this point, but we are going to get Bond 25. Daniel Craig returns to play the suave British spy one last time. However, he has yet to find out what his next mission will be.
Plot details have remained under wraps, but we now know who 007 might have to face this time around. According to new reports, recent Academy Award-winner Rami Malek could be playing the villain. More on the report below.
“It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on Episode IX. There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all,” Star Wars Episode IX director JJ Abrams tweeted on February 15 to mark the completion of principal photography. With it, he posted a photo from the set.
There’s no doubt that Jordan Peele‘s Us, his follow up to Get Out, is one of the most highly anticipated films of the year. And judging by the reactions and eagerness to see it as soon as possible, the Us makes its debut at SXSW later this year, we can expect to see the same visceral terror with a tinge of Twilight Zone. Even the film itself was inspired by that show. Now with the film’s theatrical release just a little over a month away from release, we are getting a new look at it with a brand new TV spot.
Initially set up to be unveiled during the Super Bowl, Peele posted the spot on a SubReddit, much to the delight of everyone. Check it out here below.
Our first look at Jordan Peele‘s latest Us revealed that the filmmaker wants to create a monster mythology as a follow-up to his Oscar-winning Get Out.
