After receiving a new theatrical poster and the film’s official synopsis, fans now have a first look at Jordan Peele‘s upcoming horror film, Us.
Acting as Peele’s first follow up movie since his critically-acclaimed Get Out feature, Us is slated to be “a new nightmare.” Now thanks to Entertainment Weekly, the first shots from the film have been shared, giving fans a closer look at the horror film coming our way. Included in the set of photos is Lupita Nyong’o wearing blood stained clothes, while the other features a family all in red eerily holding hands. Take at look at the photos above.
The director also sat down with the publication to discuss his new project, stating, “For my second feature, I wanted to create a monster mythology. I wanted to do something that was more firmly in the horror genre but still held on to my love of movies that are twisted but fun.”
Us will feature a mother and father taking their kids to their beach house expecting to unplug and unwind with friends. “But as night descends, their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some shocking visitors arrive uninvited,” reads the official synopsis.
The film stars Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke from Black Panther and Elizabeth Moss from The Handmaid’s Tale will also star alongside Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman); Anna Diop (Titans); Tim Heidecker (Ant-Man and the Wasp); Evan Alex (Five Blocks Away); Shahadi Wright Joseph (who voice young Nala in the upcoming The Lion King live-action film); and Cali and Noelle Sheldon (the twins that played Ross and Rachel’s baby, Emma, on Friends).
Universal has already dated the movie for a March 15, 2019, release. In more entertainment news, Men in Black‘s international trailer reunites Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth.
