Jordan Peele’s Antebellum was originally set for an April 2020 release, but due to everything being shut down due to COVID the film was pushed back.
Today it was revealed that the new film from Lions Gate is going to be released in theaters on August 21st.
Months back when the trailer was released, no one could figure out the plot of the movie. They pretty much kept a tight lid on it until today.
The official synopsis states that the film revolves around a successful author who soon discovers that she can go back in time and live in the pre-Civil War era. While she’s there she witnesses the horrors of slavery.
Janelle Monae plays the author who is forced to unravel the mysteries of the past in order to save herself from a grim future.
This film still looks to be pretty haunting and I’m curious to see how it all unfolds. I really enjoyed Get Out and Us, so I’m definitely looking forward to this new mysterious thriller!
