Jordan Peele dropped jaws when his directorial debut, Get Out, hit theaters last year. Since then, fans were anxious to see what he would do next behind the camera. Earlier this year it was announced that he would be directing Us, and would have Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong’o.
After a quiet few months, we now have the official plot synopsis, which was revealed due to the upcoming test screenings. Check out the synopsis below:
A mother (Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o from Black Panther, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and 12 Years a Slave) and a father (Winston Duke from Black Panther) take their kids to their beach house expecting to unplug and unwind with friends (including Emmy winner Elizabeth Moss from TV series The Handmaid’s Tale). But as night descends, their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some shocking visitors arrive uninvited.
It seems like he’s not veering too far off from the thriller-esque theme that he’s already mastered. He’s been hard at work on it, despite his busy schedule that includes involvement in the new Twilight Zone reboot, his producing credit with the new Candyman, and the voice work he’s contributed to Toy Story 4.
Peele knows that the bar is set high after Get Out, so whatever he does with Us, I am sure it will have people trembling in their seats! What are your thoughts on the Us plot synopsis? Let us know your thoughts over at SuperBroMovies! – JB Baker
