Oscar-winning screenwriter Jordan Peele is back with his follow up to the hit Get Out, like that film it’s a horror movie from the perspective of an African-American screenwriter/filmmaker something that made Get Out one of the more unique films of the last decade. By the looks of things, Us will certainly bring the creeps and hopefully might cement Peele as one of the best horror directors.
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, stars Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway. Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
Universal Pictures has set the release date of Us for March 15th, 2019.
