GET OUT writer/director Jordan Peele's new horror film US will be in theatres in a couple days, but if you want a little video appetizer before you head out to the theatre a featurette has arrived online that mixes quick clips from US with interviews in which actors Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, and Elisabeth Moss discuss the experience of working on the film.

This featurette is barely over a minute long, so it doesn't offer a whole lot of information. For example, Nyong'o says that it was scary for her to play both the hero and her villainous doppelgänger, but that's all you'll hear about that.

Still, if you can't wait for US and want to see everything about it that you can get your eyes on, the featurette is here, embedded below.

The story of US follows 

Adelaide and Gabe Wilson as they take their kids to Adelaide’s old childhood beachside home in Northern California for the summer. After a day at the beach with the Tyler family, Adelaide — who’s haunted by a lingering trauma from her past — becomes increasingly more paranoid that something bad will happen to her family. As night falls, the Wilsons see four figures holding hands and standing silently at the bottom of their driveway…

In addition to the actors in the featurette, the film also stars Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Evan Alex, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon, and Madison Curry.

The official release date for US is March 22nd, but screenings will actually begin on the evening of the 21st in many theatres.
