‘Us’ and the Best and Worst Trailers of the New Year

We have met the enemy, and they are “Us.” The terrifying first look at writer-director Jordan Peele’s follow-up to “Get Out” towers over four other recently released trailers.

At least this trailer doesn’t promise the film will be different. “This is like in every story we ever read — Luke Skywalker, Harry Potter,” says the title kid. “Something amazing happens, and they find out they’re descended from magical families.” In this case, a modern-day schoolboy (Louis Ashbourne Serkis, son of “Lord of the Rings” alumnus Andy Serkis) discovers he’s King Arthur. The clip looks shopworn and corny, but it does earn points for truth in advertising.
