Us is an upcoming 2019 American psychological horror-thriller film written and directed by Jordan Peele. It stars Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Shandi Jospeh Wright, Evan Alex, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Anna Diop, and follows a family who are confronted by a group of doppelgängers. Husband and wife Gabe and Adelaide Wilson take their children to their beach house, hoping to spend time with friends. Their serenity soon turns to tension and chaos when a group of "strangers" arrive.
The project was first announced in February 2018, and much of the cast joined that summer. Peele also produces alongside Jason Blum and Sean McKittrick (with the trio previously having collaborated on BlacKkKlansman and Peele's Get Out), 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 was theatrically released in the United States on March 22, 2019, by Universal Pictures. The film has grossed $216 million worldwide and received praise from critics for Peele's screenplay and direction, as well as the score and acting.
