Jordan Peele’s upcoming Us looks to be one hell of a terrifying experience thanks to the trailer that dropped not too long ago. Starring Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong’o, the film will see a family struggle to survive against their doppelgangers of unknown origin, providing a heap of thrills and tension in the process. Peele’s debut directorial endeavor Get Out provided us with one hell of a horror film along with some social commentary in regards to aspects pertaining to race. The Oscar winning film no doubts serves as source of anticipation for this next film but it looks like we’re going to have to wait just a little longer for the film to be released.
Initially slated for a March 15, 2019 release, Us has been pushed back according to a report from The Wrap. Don’t worry, it’s not pushed back too far as it’s been pushed back to a March 22nd release, only a week from its initial release. The film would be going up against the likes of Five Feet Apart starring Cole Sprouse (Riverdale) and the Richard Linkater (Boyhood) directed Where’d You Go Bernadette? at the box-office.
It’s unclear why the film was pushed back but one could speculate that it might have something to do with Captain Marvel‘s March 8th release. Pushing back the film would provide a one week cushion for the film as there’s a chance that Captain Marvel would garner more traction a week after its release. The other films it’s competing against is no joke however since Cole Sprouse is a pretty big deal and Linklater himself is a damn good filmmaker. However, Us seems to have some solid marketing behind it so it would likely come out on top.
