Last year, Lupita Nyong’o (right) and Danai Gurira starred in the massive blockbuster hit Black Panther at Marvel Studios. But soon they’ll team up for something much different on the small screen.
HBO Max, the upcoming streaming service from WarnerMedia, has announced a straight-to-series order for an adaptation of Americanah, the best-selling novel written by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Not unlike Black Panther, the story has roots in Africa as it follows a woman born in Nigeria who leaves for America and her extraordinary experiences with love, heartache, adversity and self-discovery. Find out more about the Americanah TV series below. Read More »

Even though everyone is talking about Avengers: Endgame after the sequel’s record-breaking opening weekend, let’s not forget about Jordan Peele‘s Us. Not only did the original horror movie break box office records of its own, but it was a buzzworthy movie worth talking about extensively. Now we’ll be able to dive even deeper into the film as Us hits Blu-ray, DVD, 4K Ultra HD and OnDemand in June, and it comes with an underground bunker’s worth of special features. Read More »
You’ve seen Us by now, right? It’s been out for a couple of weeks, and people can’t stop talking about all its twists and turns. Still, if you’ve yet to see Jordan Peele‘s mind-bending horror film, and have also managed to avoid spoilers up until now, you might want to turn back this instance.

After winning an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for 2017’s Get Out, writer/director Jordan Peele is back with Us, a new tale of terror that’s a totally different type of movie.

The doppelgangers at the center of Jordan Peele‘s highly anticipated follow-up to his breakout 2017 hit Get Out are part of a long tradition of doppelgangers in horror movies.

It’s best seen in the two new Us clips released by Universal a week ahead of the film’s release.

Jordan Peele‘s Us is one of our most anticipated movies of the year, and its release is almost here. The new horror film from the Get Out director finds a family having to face off against…themselves. Or at least, some sort of weird, scary alternate versions of themselves. The truth is, Peele and company have done a great job keeping the real plot details under lock and key. A new Us international trailer is here, and it’s loaded with creepy footage, but it continues to leave us in the dark. Which is probably going to make seeing the film all the more terrifying.

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 »
There’s an endless number of zombie movies out there. So if you’re going to tackle this particular horror subgenre, you better have something unique to bring to the table. Thankfully, Australian filmmaker Abe Forsythe has exactly that. This the heartwarming story of an irresponsible, immature, and profane uncle and his adorable, gluten-intolerant, tractor and Darth Vader-obsessed nephew. But it’s blended it with a 1980s-inspired zombie invasion, and the result is a bloody laugh riot called Little Monsters. Read More »
