New York — Jordan Peele's Us, his anticipated follow-up to Get Out, will make its world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival.
SXSW announced on Tuesday that Us will open the 26th edition of the Austin, Texas, festival on 8 March. Like Peele's Get Out, Us is a socially minded horror thriller.
The film stars Lupita Nyong'o as a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband and two children. On the vacation, an unresolved trauma from her past is unearthed leading to an eerie confrontation for the family with doppelgangers of themselves.
Us will be released on 22 March by Universal Pictures. Peele also produces along with Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions.
