Universal Pictures has released a new poster for Academy Award winner Jordan Peele’s new social thriller film Us. Peele also took to Twitter to confirm that the trailer for the film will arrive on Christmas Day! Scheduled to be released on March 15, 2019, you can check out the full poster 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 newly added cast members, Shahadi Wright Joseph (Hairspray Live!), Evan Alex (Mani), Madison Curry, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon (Friends) and Duke Nicholson.
The official synopsis for the film reads: “A mother (Lupita Nyong’o) and a father (Winston Duke) take their kids to their beach house expecting to unplug and unwind with friends (including Elizabeth Moss). But as night descends, their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some shocking visitors arrive uninvited.”
Get Out was a massive success for Universal and Peele in his directorial debut, earning over $255 million globally off a $4.5 million budget. The film also earned widespread praise from critics and audiences for its deft blend of comedy and horror, as well as its trenchant themes and subtle messages hidden throughout the film. It was nominated for four Academy Awards, with Peele winning for Best Original Screenplay, making him the first African-American writer to win the award.
Us will be written and directed by Peele and will also produce through his Monkeypaw Productions. The film is being produce by Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum and Monkeypaw’s Ian Cooper with Daniel Lupi to executive produce.
Peele is currently in talks to produce a remake of director Bernard Rose’s 1992 horror film adaptation, Candyman. He is also busy working on other projects such as: the comedy series, Weird City for YouTube Premium; HBO’s Lovecraft Country and the CBS series remake of The Twilight Zone.
