The horror-thriller “US” now has a digital release date. From Academy Award winner Jordan Peele, “US” will first release on digital on June 4th, followed by the Blu-ray and DVD release on June 18th. Fans of the genre only have a few more weeks left to own the film, and the new release features commentary by Jordan Peele, explaining the symbolism and choices that were made during production.
“US” was Peele’s highly anticipated follow up to the Oscar-winning film “Get Out.” The new thriller is certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a score of 94%, and features Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther, 12 Years a Slave), Winston Duke (Black Panther), Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Mad Men”) and Tim Heidecker (The Comedy, “Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories”).
The film did very well in theaters, opening back in March with a $71M debut. The horror-thriller went on to make over $172M domestically and over $249M worldwide.
Set along the North California coastline, Adelaide Wilson (Nyong’o) reluctantly returns to her beachside childhood home with her family and finds that she is haunted by unresolved trauma from her past along with a string of eerie coincidences. As darkness falls after a tense day at the beach, the Wilsons discover four figures standing in their driveway. They soon realize this is only the beginning of their troubles as they find that the four figures are terrifying and uncanny opponents: doppelgängers of themselves.
Peele is currently producing and hosting the new Twilight Zone reboot for CBS All Access. The video streaming service announced this week that the show has been renewed for a second season.
