The upcoming horror flick will terrify viewers in March.
Universal has released the first trailer for Us. The film comes from writer/director Jordan Peele (Get Out) and is set to hit theaters on March 15, 2019.
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, stars Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe, and their two children for an idyllic summer getaway. Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers, Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

Us stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, and Noelle Sheldon. Writer and director Jordan Peele also serves as a producer for the film under his Monkeypaw Productions banner, along with Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum, and Monkeypaw's Ian Cooper.
Jordan Peele previously won the 2018 Best Original Screenplay Oscar for his directorial debut, Get Out, starring Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, and Bradley Whitford. The movie is now available on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. In addition to Us, Peele is also currently developing an updated version of The Twilight Zone for the CBS All Access streaming service.
