This Is “Us”… But This Family’s Facing Way More Drama… And Horror (Trailer)

See? Just like Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” this movie starts one way, hints at another and goes in a WHOLE other OTHER direction. True rollercoaster movie (e.g. anticipate the thrills & chills) experience coming to theaters soon enough.

Coming to theaters in March 2019 Rep. McKinney. Hold on sista, hold on!

After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

Lovely Lupita Nyong’o Answers ’73 Questions’ (Video)

Wow… sometimes we need Eye Candy to touch our souls. You might think a rapid-fire interview of “73 questions” would either be not-so-engaging (at best) or annoying (more likely). But with classy lady Lupita … the answer is C – none of the above.

Lupita Nyong’o reveals a few of her (many) talents, from speaking Swahili and Spanish, to showing off her impressive hula hoop skills. The Oscar-winning actress also reflects on what it was like to move to Mexico at age 16 without her parents, how she learned to cry on demand, what life was like as a Hollywood production assistant, and what it took to bring her upcoming Star Wars character to life.

Isn’t she lovely? And just when you think the clip is all about inner beauty (which she definitely has)… BAM! She shows us she is wearing the very form-fitting yellow dress like WHOOOAAA! Watch and enjoy.

Stephen Colbert Talks Politics With Bernie Sanders And Walks ‘Silly’ With Lupita Nyong’O (Video)

Y’all done messed up now. Giving Stephen Colbert a ‘bump’ to a bigger media platform – from Comedy Central to CBS – allows him to do what he does, increased by an order of magnitude. Political satire on 10? Nah, on 100! And he’s just getting started. Above: Check him out lampooning the 2016 field of U.S Presidential candidates. “Feel the Bern” (candidate Bernie Sanders) for real. And dare you not to chuckle at the Republican candidates…

…Oh, you already were? Well, this’ll chuck some chuckles into the laugh fest.

Hit the jump for more hilarity; and Colbert spending some silly time with actress Lupita Nyong’O. And by the time all your watching and laughing are done, you will also have a little something to think about. Balancing comedy and commentary: it’s what Colbert does better than most anybody else in the biz.

Well, damn. I guess when you’re a mega media juggernaut like Disney, you can make that children’s story with “Iron Man” power to the big screen. Trailer looks dope and then some. Get ready for April 2016 movie goers.

But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat.
