Take a look inside Jordan Peele’s Us in new featurette
Universal Pictures has released a new featurette with the cast of Jordan Peele’s Us, his follow-up to the Oscar-winning Get Out, where they talk about the filmmaker’s unique passion he brings to every project. You can check out the video in the player below!
Us stars Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther), Winston Duke (Black Panther), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Tim Heidecker (Ant-Man and the Wasp) along with Shahadi Wright Joseph (Hairspray Live!), Evan Alex (Mani), Madison Curry, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon (Friends) and Duke Nicholson.
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Nyong’o stars as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Duke), and their two children (Joseph, 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 about to befall her family.
After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Moss, Heidecker, Cali and Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home to discover the silhouettes of four figures standing in their driveway. Us pits an ordinary American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
Us will be written and directed by Peele and will also produce through his Monkeypaw Productions. The film is being produced by Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum and Monkeypaw’s Ian Cooper with Daniel Lupi to executive produce.
The film will hit theaters wide on March 22.
