It’s not easy to follow up an instant classic debut with yet another spectacular film, but that’s just what Get Out director Jordan Peele did when Us was released earlier this year. The movie received glowing reviews pretty much across the board, including by us out of SXSW, and did well at the box office too, which isn’t easy for an original film to manage in these times of endless sequels and comic book dominance.
It helped that Peele sought out a magnificent cast for his second film, including Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker. There’s not a lackluster performance in the bunch.
We won’t go into the plot here, because it’s a movie best seen without knowing too much, and because we know some of you may have been waiting for Us to appear on streaming/physical after missing it at the cinema. That being said, there are objectively some spoilers in the special features detailed below, so watch out.
