Us, from Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele (Get Out), stars Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband (Winston Duke), and their children for a summer getaway.

Haunted by an unexplainable trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family.

After a day with friends (Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker), the Wilsons return to their vacation home to discover the silhouettes of four figures standing in their driveway. Us pits an ordinary American family against a terrifying opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
