Jordan Peele's Us will invade theaters later this week, and make no mistake, this is a horror film through and through. We've already seen a number of final promotions for the movie ahead of its March 22nd release, such as a creepy new teaser and a Spotify takeover, but what's one more to add to the pile? A brand-new featurette has been released by Universal Pictures and it offers a look inside the film with commentary from stars Lupita Nyong, Winston Duke, and Elisabeth Moss.
Featured in the video is a mix of preview footage and behind-the-scene shots showing Peele, the cast, and the crew hard at work putting some of the film's tension-filled scenes together. The cast members discussing Us speak very fondly of working with the filmmaker on this endeavor and their words offer a glimpse into his process of getting his unique ideas on film. It's a short-but-interesting watch, so check it out above and let us know if you're excited to catch this one when it hits theaters.
Set in present day, the film follows a woman who returns to her beachside childhood home with her husband and two children for a summer getaway. Growing increasingly more paranoid about something bad befalling her family, her fears prove to be grounded as four figures holding hands arrive at the home. Soon, the family is pitted against doppelgängers of themselves in a terrifying battle for survival.
Us stars Lupita Nyong (Black Panther, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 12 Years a Slave) as Adelaide Wilson and Winston Duke (Black Panther) as her husband, Gabe, along with Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, and Noelle Sheldon.
