HipZOMJoint Movie Pick Of The Week 3/22/19: Us

Visionary filmmaker and Academy Award® winner Jordan Peele, who created the blockbuster Get Out, follows that success with another original and provocative thriller: Us. Peele produces for his Monkeypaw Productions alongside Sean McKittrick and Jason Blum. Also producing is Monkeypaw’s Ian Cooper.

The Us trailer debuted on Christmas Day and has steadily been building hype ever since. The film stars Lupita Nyong’oWinston DukeElisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker, and follows a family who are confronted by a group of doppelgängers. The dopplegangers invade the family’s home and a night of horror begins. Peele has said that an inspiration for Us was The Twilight Zone episode “Mirror Image” that was centered on a young woman and her evil doppelgänger. Which makes sense considering Peele’s next big project is CBS All Access’ Twilight Zone reboot.

Us is now playing at a theater near you.
