Us poster

I’m desperately trying to temper my expectations for Jordan Peele‘s new horror movie Us, but that’s increasingly difficult when everything about it is this damn cool. The trailers have been killer, and now Peele, the Oscar-winning writer/director of Get Out, has revealed a creepy new poster featuring star Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther) which will haunt me for the rest of the day – not only because it’s an unsettling poster, but because I’m going to spend the next few hours wondering what a remake of John Woo’s Face/Off would look like with Nyong’o in one of the lead roles. See what I mean by checking out the full poster below. Read More »

Jordan Peele's Us Super Bowl Trailer

Get Out director Jordan Peele is back behind the camera this year with a new nightmare called Us. The first trailer undoubtedly gave us chills, and it made the hip hop jam “I Got Five On It” by Luniz absolutely terrifying. Now a new trailer has arrived that will also be airing during the Super Bowl tonight. Watch the Jordan Peele’s Us Super Bowl trailer below. Read More »

candyman reboot tony todd

The Jordan Peele-produced, Nia DaCosta-directed Candyman reboot is generating a lot of buzz, but one question remains unanswered: will Tony Todd, the original Candyman, make an appearance? It seems almost unthinkable to do a Candyman film without Todd, but as of now, there’s no official word on his involvement. The actor himself was recently asked his thoughts on the matter, and he replied that he would very much like to be in the film in some capacity – but he also won’t take it personal if it doesn’t happen.

Jordan Peele
is in charge of the upcoming Twilight Zone reboot for CBS All Access, but his Zone connections don’t end there. The filmmaker has revealed that his impending horror film Us is also inspired by a Twilight Zone episode called “Mirror Image”.

Jordan Peele Talks Us Expectations

Jordan Peele‘s eagerly anticipated sophomore directing effort, Us, debuted the first trailer on Christmas last year, giving families something to squirm about while they were home for the holidays. The trailer does a fine job of setting up the story of a black family (Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex), who suddenly find themselves stalked and hunted by another family of unsettling doppelgangers. Knowing what Jordan Peele accomplished with Get Out, many have assumed there will be another kind of racial and social commentary, but the director recently revealed that he’s subverting those expectations somewhat.

time's up challenge

2018 saw a dramatic dip in female directors working in Hollywood — an already low-statistic that can’t afford to take any more hits. This in spite of the work of the Time’s Up and Me Too movements that have taken Hollywood by storm, making accountable the powerful men and abusers who had eluded justice before.

But it’s not enough just to call out abusers, Hollywood needs to prop up underrepresented women as well. That’s what the new Time’s Up Challenge is about: encouraging Hollywood’s movers and shakers to work with a female director in the next 18 months. Proposed by Tessa Thompson, the challenge is called the #4PercentChallenge, based on the measly fraction of women who have directed the top 100 studio films in the last decade, and has already been accepted by dozens of directors, producers, writers, and actors.

Jordan Peele may be horror’s new favorite son, but the ever-busy writer/producer/director is finding ways to acknowledge his comedy roots. Jordan Peele and former Key & Peele writer Charlie Sanders teamed up to create the YouTube Premium series Weird City, a sci-fi anthology that brings the funny to futuristic dystopias. Set in a society where classes are starkly divided by the haves and have-nots, labeled in this case as “Above the Line” and “Below the Line,” Weird City stars LeVar Burton as a mad scientist who introduces all kinds of bizarre gadgets to better optimize love and life — to hilarious results according to the Weird City trailer.
