Writer and director Jordan Peele has made an incredible career transition from acclaimed sketch comedy star to acclaimed horror filmmaker. After Mad TV and Key & Peele—which netted Peele both an Emmy and a Peabody—he wrote and directed Get Out, a horror film and dark satire of so-called post-racial America that won him an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
Now, Peele and his production company, Monkey Paw Productions, have the creative freedom to make whatever they please. Peele is producing and hosting a Twilight Zone reboot on CBS All-Access, and producing a new series, Lovecraft Country, for HBO. Most notably, he's writing and directing his second horror feature film, Us, due out on March 22, 2019.
The details of the film—about a vacationing family being stalked by its doppelgangers—are sparse, but tantalizing. The marketing for Us has been uncommonly creative and creepy, ranging from evocative trailers to unsettling posters to ads that change, depending on the angle you view them at.
Here is everything you need to know about Us, one of the most anticipated films of 2019.
