US (2019): Jordan Peele’s Follow-Up to Get Out, Opens March 15

Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller Us will kick off the 26th edition of the South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) on March 8.

The tale centers on a family confronted by a group of doppelgängers, stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, and Elisabeth Moss. Nyong’o and Duke play a couple who are taking their children to their beach house.

The movie is the first project under Peele’s first-look deal with Universal Pictures, which he signed with his Monkeypaw Productions last year.

Get Out, which grossed $255 million worldwide, was also nominated for best picture, winning Peele the Best Original Screenplay Oscar.

Peele directed “Us” from his own script.

The film is produced by Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum, and Ian Cooper of Monkeypaw, its the first solo production.

Us will open in the U.S. March 15.
