The Us Trailer Is Finally Here, and It’s Spooky As Hell.
“We are our own worst enemy,” says the tagline of Jordan Peele’s forthcoming flick. Though the first official trailer for Us dropped only a day ago, folks are already speculating what the theme of the film could possibly be.
“The family seems to be a regular African-American family. But when the ‘other’ family came in that looked just like them, Lupita’s ‘twin’ sounded like she had an African accent. Why is that?” one Twitter user asked upon the teaser’s premiere. “Both Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong’o are from Trinidad & Tobago and Kenya, respectively. Since the movie is called ‘Us’ and the tagline is ‘We are our own worst enemy,’ I’m wondering if it has to do with the “struggle” between African vs. African-American.”
They could be on to something. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. Oh, and the use of “I Got 5 On It”? Effing brilliant.
Kevin Spacey Has Been Charged with Sexually Assaulting an 18-Year-Old.
Newsweek reports that disgraced actor Kevin Spacey has been charged with indecent assault and battery after allegedly groping the son of former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh in July 2016.
“I want to see Kevin Spacey go to jail,” Unruh said at a news conference in November 2017. “I want to see Kevin Spacey have the hand of justice come down on him, not just for my son, but for the many others who have yet to speak their truth.”
According to Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe, Spacey will be arraigned on January 7 at Nantucket District Court.
LeBron James Is Apologizing for Posting Those Offensive Rap Lyrics.
After quoting lyrics from 21 Savage’s “ASMR”—in which the rapper states he’s “getting that Jewish money” and, as many pointed out, perpetuates “a historical anti-Semitic trope about all Jews having too much money and power”—Lebron James had made a public apology.
“Apologies, for sure, if I offended anyone,” James told ESPN on Sunday. “That’s not why I chose to share that lyric. I always [post lyrics]. That’s what I do. I ride in my car, I listen to great music, and that was the byproduct of it. So I actually thought it was a compliment, and obviously it wasn’t through the lens of a lot of people. My apologies. It definitely was not the intent, obviously, to hurt anybody.”
