Universal Home Entertainment has announced that writer/director Jordan Peele's GET OUT follow-up US is coming to home video in June, with the film getting a Digital release on June 4th followed by a 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand release on June 18th. Along with the film we'll be getting the chance to check out over 50 minutes of bonus features that will be "delving deep into the mind of Jordan Peele, his filmmaking process, and the symbolism behind US."

Starring Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon, and Madison Curry, US has the following synopsis: 

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.

Bonus features set to accompany the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital releases are: 

The Duality of US – Jordan Peele goes in-depth on some of the key themes and imagery in US – including Doppelgängers, Hands Across America, The Nutcracker dance scene, rabbits and the infamous 11:11 coincidence.

The Monsters Within US – Examine how the great cast were able to find their characters, whether they were playing one of the Wilsons or their sinister doppelgängers.

Tethered Together: Making US Twice – Making of a movie is hard. Making a movie where all the main cast play dual roles can be downright mind-bending. In this piece, filmmakers, cast, and crew discuss some of the technical challenges to making the film, as well as some of the design choices for the characters.

Redefining a Genre: Jordan Peele's Brand of Horror – In the space of two films, Jordan Peele has set himself apart as an invaluable artistic voice. Hear cast and filmmakers highlight what makes him so unique, as well as Jordan's own thoughts on his inspirations and the relationship between horror and comedy.

Becoming Red – Using behind-the-scenes footage from between takes, we take a closer look at Lupita Nyong'o's intense and mesmerizing performance as "Red."

Deleted Scenes
– I Am Not Even Near You
– Rabbit Season
– That's Badass
– Driftwood
– The P is Silent
– I Wanna Go Home

We're All Dying – Hilarious outtakes from the conversation between Winston Duke and Tim Heidecker on the beach.

As Above, So Below: Grand Pas de Deux – An extended version of the dance sequence from the film, cutting between adolescent Adelaide at her recital to Red in the Underpass.

A bonus feature exclusive to the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital versions is: 

Scene Explorations – The making of three iconic scenes from the film including the Tyler house massacre, Jason's abduction and Adelaide's underground flashback.
– Seven Second Massacre
– It's a Trap
– I Just Want My Little Girl Back

If you're a fan of US, it sounds like this is going to be a great release. Even if it appears to be missing my favorite type of bonus feature, audio commentary.
