Ah, it turns out one of today’s most original filmmakers has no issues going to war against a behemoth IP (Avatar 3) and a family-friendly one (Sonic the Hedgehog 3) around Christmas time next year.
Jordan Peele will return to action with his fourth solo feature arriving in theaters on December 25, 2024 (Christmas). Intriguingly enough, the filmmaker seems to have no issue spoiling the jolly holiday spirit with (presumably) another comedy horror feature. Get Out, Us, and Nope all encapsulated the frightening atmospheres and turned up the notch with some cerebral twist about why such fate fell on the local(s). Get Out eerily showcased, “Crap, racial politics are still not dead!” Us unveiled our personal footnote shadows and had them wreak havoc across America, while Nope said, “Don’t look at such spectacle or you’ll end up as remains!” An unpredictable choice will be made with Peele’s next outing, so audiences will surely be excited to see what is wielded.
In a turn of the announcement, Universal Pictures also scheduled an untitled Monkeypay Productions film (Peele’s production company) to release on September 27, 2024.
No details about the feature(s), plot, or casting have been revealed yet. Note that Peele likes to toy with audiences before delivering shock value.
The fourth untitled feature will be released on Christmas 2024, days after Avatar 3 and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (distributed on December 20th).
