“A mother (Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o from Black Panther, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and 12 Years a Slave) and a father (Winston Duke from Black Panther) take their kids to their beach house expecting to unplug and unwind with friends (including Emmy winner Elizabeth Moss from TV series The Handmaid’s Tale). But as night descends, their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some shocking visitors arrive uninvited.”
Jordan Peele is one of the most important voices in film that we have at the moment, and that he is making genre films and horror thrills me to no end. The amount of prestige and respect that he brings to horror in general cannot be overstated. This sounds like it will be some kind of home invasion thriller, and with this filmmaker and cast, it should jump to the top of most people’s must-see lists.
Us, directed by Jordan Peele, and starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elizabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Madison Curry, Cali Sheldon, and Noelle Sheldon opens on March 15, 2019.
