Blumhouse Productions has released a new poster for Jordan Peele’s upcoming horror movie Us. – which we first reported on back in May of last year. The poster features lead actress Lupita Nyong’o looking very distressed and holding a mask of her own face:
Also appearing on the poster is the film’s newly released tagline “Watch Yourself”.
Us is written & directed by Peele and stars Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Evan Alex, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Madison Curry, and Cali & Noelle Sheldon. The film will be released to theaters nationwide on Friday, March 15th.
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o), a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph & Evan Alex) 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 (Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, and Noelle Sheldon), 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: doppelgangers of themselves.
