Successfully broke the Oscar and created a hit at the box office through its film debut, Get Out, making the latest work by Jordan Peele’s filmmaker, Us, highly anticipated. Now Universal releases the synopsis Us, which finally reveals the mystery of the story from Peele’s thriller.
Broadly speaking, Peele looks like to present a home invasion-themed film through Us. The film itself tells of a mother and father who took their child to his home on the coast, hoping to have fun with his friend. But as night fell, their togetherness moment turned tense and chaotic when uninvited guests appeared.
Starting from the synopsis, Us seems to be not much different from the home invasion films in general, which often highlights the host’s struggle to survive the terror of strangers. But because this film came from a Jordan Peele, Us has the potential to become a special home invasion show that might offend racial issues, as Peele presented in Get Out.
Meanwhile, the ranks of Us players involved two Black Panther movie stars, Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong’o, and one star in the series The Handmaid’s Tale, Elisabeth Moss. Besides them, there are also Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop and Tom Pelphrey. SlashFilm also reported, the film will mark Duke Nicholson’s acting debut, which is none other than the famous actor’s grandson Jack Nicholson. With a text written by Peele, Us was produced by Blumhouse, which previously also powered Get Out with Universal.
