Us, Jordan Peele’s follow up to 2017’s Academy Award-winning Get Out, got its Super Bowl trailer right as the big game’s pre-game coverage marathon began today. Not only that, it appears Peele created a subreddit for the movie and his production company, Monkeypaw Productions just for the occasion.

Shorter than the first trailer, Us’s latest tease (shouldn’t that be Our latest tease?) is mainly a condensed version of what was revealed on Christmas Day. The monsters are still doppelgangers, still revealed to be mimics of the Wilson family (starring Winston Duke and Luipita Nyong’o). No bunnies and no “I Got 5 On It” this go-around though.

There is a little more foreshadowing on the supernatural origins of the Wilsons’ antagonists. Otherwise, plenty of good old fashioned you’re-not-safe-in-your-own-home chills and scares, and threatening sharp objects.

Us, distributed by Universal Pictures, premieres at South by Southwest on March 8, 2019, and makes its theatrical release on March 22.
