Antebellum Trailer: A Time-Travelling Horror Movie from the Producers of Get Out and Us


Producers Sean McKittrick and Raymond Mansfield, who previously teamed with Jordan Peele on Get Out and Us and also produced Spike Lee’s BlackKklansman, are now putting their weight behind another upcoming genre movie that explores racial themes. Antebellum is the feature directorial debut of Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz (aka Bush + Renz) and it stars Janelle Monáe as a successful author who finds herself transported back in time to the Antebellum South where she is seemingly trapped on a plantation. The new trailer doesn’t reveal much more in terms of plot details as Lionsgate seems to be maintaining some mystery in their marketing but there are definite hints of supernatural imagery mixed with the real-world horror of slavery. Antebellum co-stars Eric Lang, Jena Malone, Jack Huston, Kiersey Clemons, Tongayi Chirisa and Gabourey Sidibe and it hits theatres on April 24th; check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think.
