Yeah, it may only be February, but we can feel it in our gut that this new poster for Jordan Peele's Us will be one of the best we see this year.
Peele shared the poster on Twitter today, which definitely focuses on the creepy doppelgänger element of the film, featuring Lupita Nyong’o‘s character taking off her normal face to reveal her scary double underneath. We feel the poster perfectly captures the unease of Peele's new film, and it's just a stunning piece of art in general.
"Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us stars Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s 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 about to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home to discover the silhouettes of four figures standing in their driveway. Us pits an ordinary American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves."
Peele produces for his Monkeypaw Productions, alongside Monkeypaw creative director Ian Cooper, in the company’s first solo production venture. Also producing are Sean McKittrick and Jason Blum.
Written and directed by Peele, Us will be released by Universal Pictures on Friday, March 22nd, 2019.
