Jordan Peele Gave Black Hollywood A Sneak Peek Of His New Film ‘Us’ And Everyone Is Absolutely Shook

The ‘Get Out’ filmmaker has another hit on his hands.

Published March 10th

Jordan Peele's Us is about to hit theaters on March 22. The first screenings took place this weekend and the reviews are in — Peele did it again.

  1. Directed and written by Peele, the film, which is about a family confronted by a group of doppelgängers, stars Lupita Nyong'o and Winston Duke.

    Peele said about the film when the trailer dropped on Christmas, “I definitely wanted to do a movie that started with this sense of invasion, this sense of the fear of other, the fear of the stranger from outside, which I think is a common fear in society these days, and then sort of force the characters to realize the invaders have their faces. I didn’t want to make just a home invasion, though I utilized that imagery. I wanted the sense of an adventure that was not necessarily a claustrophobic one — that’s a feeling that turns me off watching. I wanted to make this expansive, I wanted it to have themes of night and day.”

    Mission accomplished.
