Jordan Peele’s Thriller ‘Us’ Will Open SXSW Film Festival

Short link

Oscar-winning director Jordan Peele is set to premiere his second horror-thriller Us at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival on March 8.

The plot of the movie is described as follows, "Husband and wife Gabe and Adelaide Wilson (Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o) 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."

Us is the first project under Peele’s first-look deal with Universal Pictures, Variety reports, which he signed with his Monkeypaw Productions last year.
“We are crazy excited to world premiere the most anticipated film of 2019 from the creative powerhouse that brought us ‘Get out,’” said Janet Pierson, director of the film for the festival. “We honestly couldn’t imagine a more perfect film to kick off the 2019 SXSW Film Festival.”
