Peele's second horror movie, coming March, has a new poster, and a summary:
A trailer drops on Christmas.
Any idea what these visitors might be ?
Really excited for this one.
I have 3 hunches:
Those hands suggest something off.
Will this one be a social satire too, I wonder?
Promos are out alluding to something called "the Untethering" that revolves around the scissors on the poster.
Yeeeeeah I'm suspecting the villain is going to be some metaphor for racism, and that this will be social satire.
I really need to watch Get Out some time. It's been on my radar for awhile now. I had so much about it spoiled I kind of put it to the wayside.

The latest word on it makes it sound like some sort of monster movie wherein the monsters become doppelgangers of their targets.
So it's like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but with racism probably?

Now I'm going to be worried whenever I hear I Got 5 On It
Yeah. No. Couldn't will myself to watch the trailer, so I looked around for stuff talking about it and apparently...the main characters are dealing with a cult that consists of evil doppelgangers of themselves.
So it might be not so much Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but more like Invasion of the Body Duplicates or some other horror movie dealing with duplicates. Regardless, maybe I wasn't so far off on that "aliens" theory I spitballed earlier.
Okay, I know being asked to voice the poop emoji in The Emoji Movie shocked him into quitting acting to be a filmmaker (yes, really), but honestly, where does Jordan Peele get these ideas?
I can't remember the last time a trailer actually scared me.
I imagine it’s something like an attempt at Kill and Replace?
That was creepy as fuck. And far more apocalyptic in scope than I was expecting.
There is some seriously weird-ass, surreal Jacob's Ladder / Silent Hill / David Lynch shit in there if you slow it down. (What the hell is with the hallway full of rabbits?)
Cloning Blues, presumably.
The usage of "I Got 5 On It" is brilliant, but it's ridiculous seeing people try to decipher it in the trailer comments when it's just a song about scoring weed.
Peele says there's not any deliberate racial subtext like in Get Out, but something tells me that's gonna be hit with Death of the Author by some people.
At least that way he won't end up like Neil Blomkamp, who dresses up the same political opinions in different sorts of science fiction movies.
Nothing insightful to add, but hearing "I got 5 on it" used in a commercial made me feel old AF.
So...anyone heard of the possibility this movie's set in the same universe as Get Out?
I recall someone on Twitter speculating that the main African American family is actually a family of whites in control of black bodies and the so-called group of invaders is the actual African American family revenge-rampaging for their lives back after Chris Washington wrecking the Armitage cult inspired them to fight back...or something.
But then I realized that wasn't how that you-know-what worked in Get Out, so...
Or maybe the family were victims of an earlier process of the you-know-what and it involved switching brain tissue with bunnies.
Wait. No. That doesn't sound right either...
Never mind, my brain hurts...

Don't think there's any need to spoiler tag guesses.
Eh, fine. I fixed it. I'll just assume you guys at least know what happens in Get Out.
Given that Peele said the movie is not about race, I really don't think so.
If anything it's a movie about inner darkness
That just happens to have progressive casting by making it a family of black people, rather than conventional horror movies where the family is white.
