Universal Pictures has unveiled the international trailer for Us, Jordan Peele's highly anticipated horror flick starring Lupita Nyong'o.

Just like the previous teasers, this trailer doesn't reveal too much information about the movie's mysterious plot. It does however, include never-before-seen footage of the Wilson family attempting to survive a group of menacing strangers.

"You know how sometimes things line up? Coincidences," Nyong'o's character, Adelaide, says in the trailer. "Since we've been up here, they've been happening more and more. It's like there's this black cloud hanging over us."

Us tells the story of a black family whose summer vacation is violently interrupted by creatures called The Tethered—a group of incredibly creepy doppelgängers. Since the film's first trailer debuted last December, fans have cooked up some wild and elaborate theories about the film's storyline. Many speculate The Tethered are a result of a science experiment gone wrong, while others believe they are physical manifestations of the family's past trauma. Some people are even convinced the clones will turn out to be the heroes. 

"I think the main idea that went into writing this film is that we’re our own worst enemy, and that idea created this monster, The Tethered," Peele said about the film back in December. "I wanted to forge this new mythology that explored our duality and the duality of the characters. To the actors, I knew this was the ultimate fun because who doesn’t want to play two roles in a movie; when you’re tired in one, you get to jump into the other. But I think what was a fun challenge for actors, was finding the connections between the characters and their counterparts."

Us also stars Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Anna Diop. The film hits U.S. theaters March 22.
