Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out was most of the most successful and critically acclaimed horror movies of recent years, and expectations are high for his follow-up, Us. It’s another horror film and arrives next month. Following the movie’s recent freaky Super Bowl trailer, a stunning new poster has been released.
The poster was tweeted by Peele himself, and it shows star Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther) pulling aside a mask of her smiling face to reveal a much scarier version underneath. We already know that the film focuses on a family who are terrorised by a group of identical doppelgangers, and this poster is every bit as unnerving as the footage released so far. Check it out below:
Us also stars Nyong’o’s Black Panther co-star Winston Duke as Gabe Wilson. Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Tim Heidecker join them as members of the Tyler family, with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II from Aquaman and Anna Diop from the DC Universe streaming series Titans, also appearing. It hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
2019 is set to be a big year for Peele. In addition to Us, his take on a new Twilight Zone series will debut on CBS All Access on April 1 (disclosure: CBS is GameSpot’s parent company). Peele will serve as host and narrator of the show, and his production company, Monkeypaw, is set to produce the series.
In addition, Peele is producing a new Amazon series titled The Hunt. The show is set in 1977 New York City and centers on a group of people known as Hunters who track down Nazis hoping to establish a Fourth Reich in America. Last month it was reported that Al Pacino will take the lead role in the series.
