Candyman legitimately terrified me when I was kid, to the extent that I white-knuckled a second viewing in a college folklore class ten years later, still as freaked out by it as the day I first saw it. I once threw a bottle of shampoo at a cabinmate at summer camp because she was pulling that “Candyman” bullsh-t in the showers, is how seriously that movie damaged me. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Jordan Peele’s Us exceeded box office projections this weekend, opening with $70.3 million and setting several records, proving that Get Out wasn’t a fluke (not that anyone thought it would be) and establishing him as an event filmmaker, the kind of storyteller who can deliver a commercial hit and make you think at the same time.  Read Full Intro

After a stunning debut like Get Out, anything less than equal success is bound to seem like a disappointment. Such is the case for Jordan Peele’s sophomore feature film, Us. Is it bad? Emphatically NO. But it’s not as deep or thematically grounded as Get Out, which is bound to feel like a disappointment to anyone looking for similar themes. Full Story

I really think there needs to be a three-month moratorium on Oscar talk following the Academy Awards, but life is inherently unfair so here we are, just a few weeks after the Oscars, already talking about next year’s Oscars. The subject? Jordan Peele’s Us. Just the trailer Full Story

When Jordan Peele introduced Lupita Nyong’o at the world premiere of Us in Austin at SXSW on Friday night, she leapt from her seat and started punching the air to cheer for her film and hype up the crowd. She was PUMPED because she knew what we were about to see: the most talked about movie of the festival. Full Story

Sassy toys being sassy

We got another look at Toy Story 4 during the Super Bowl, this time introducing new toys Bunny and Ducky, voiced by Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael-Key, respectively, and also a look at revamped Bo Peep (Annie Potts returns!). This is a fun and funny clip, with none of the nightmare dread introduced by the first teaser and its cursed star, Sporky Full Story

The nightmares was Us all along

With Get Out, Jordan Peele revealed himself to be a filmmaker fully formed, with clear vision and scope, and really no improvement needed. So his sophomore effort, titled Us, is both highly anticipated and scrutinized, as we want the next dose of his particular brand of horror, but also to see if Get Out is a fluke. Full Story

This was another one of those articles we all wanted to write. I think because Get Out affected each of us in a particular way. As I mentioned on Show Your Work, I only watched it recently, but have been thinking about it ever since. Full Story

Not perfect, but better. The Oscar nominations this morning got it mostly right, recognizing films we expected—The Shape of Water, Three Billboards, Dunkirk, Call Me By Your Name—films we didn’t—Logan and The Big Sick—and films we feared would be overlooked, like Mudbound and Get Out, which had to climb streaming and genre hurdles, respectively. Full Story

Midway through the Golden Globes last night I texted Duana and Kathleen: where is Jordan Peele? I feel like Daniel Kaluuya needs him.  Jordan was there and we all hilariously, at the same time, texted each other the minute he turned up in one of the shots (“There’s Jordan!”) but there are no photos of Jordan on the carpet at the Globes. Full Story
