After taking viewers into the Sunken Place in Get Out last year, Jordan Peele's highly anticipated follow-up, Us, will make its world premiere at the South by Southwest film festival on March 8th, and while it was originally slated to come out in theaters on March 15th, viewers outside of SXSW will now have to wait just a bit longer to see it on the big screen.
As reported by multiple sources and confirmed on the official Twitter account for Us, the next movie from Jordan Peele has been pushed back one week to March 22nd. From the looks of the previously released trailer (see below), though, the extra week should be well worth the wait, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on any further details regarding Us.
Synopsis: "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."
Written and directed by Peele, Us stars Lupita Nyong’o, Elisabeth Moss, Winston Duke, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tim Heidecker, Anna Diop, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Madison Curry, Evan Alex, Cali Sheldon, and Noelle Sheldon.
