Lupita Nyong’o delivers strong perfomance in Us

Us is a 2019 American psychological horror-thriller film written, directed and co-produced by Jordan Peele.

The film stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker, and follows a family who are confronted by a group of doppelgängers.

The project was first announced in February 2018, and much of the cast joined that summer.

Peele produced the film alongside Jason Blum and Sean McKittrick (with the trio previously having collaborated on Get Out and BlacKkKlansman), as well as Ian Cooper. Filming took place from July to October 2018 in California.

Us had its world premiere at South by Southwest on March 8, 2019 and is scheduled for release in the United States on March 22, 2019, by Universal Pictures.

The film received universal acclaim for its screenplay, direction, acting (particularly by Nyong’o and Duke), cinematography, character development and musical score, with IGN calling it a “marvelous new American horror story.”
