Jordan Peele's US rated R for violence/terror & language

It was just yesterday that we shared with you guys the stunning new poster for GET OUT writer-director Jordan Peele's new nightmare US starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, and Elizabeth Moss. If you missed that poster yesterday you can check it out HERE and the masterpiece of a poster below as well. And if that alone wasn't enough to get your butt in a theater seat for this film's opening weekend maybe this update will seal the deal.

Today we have word via the MPAA that the new movie has been slapped with an R-rating for violence/terror, and language. Duh. I really couldn't imagine Peele's new film going the PG-13 route as the trailer itself is pushing the PG-13 envelope. But still, it's good to know that the movie will be sporting some good old violence and language to go along with its terror next month.

Here's the movie's official synopsis:

Accompanied by her husband, son, and daughter, Adelaide Wilson returns to the beachfront home where she grew up as a child. Haunted by a traumatic experience from the past, Adelaide grows increasingly concerned that something bad is going to happen to her family. Her worst fears soon become a reality when four masked strangers descend upon the house, forcing the Wilsons into a fight for survival. When the masks come off, each stranger takes the appearance of a different family member.

Written and directed by Peele, the film stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon, and Madison Curry. Peele produced US through his company Monkeypaw Productions, along with Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum, and Ian Cooper. Daniel Lupi served as executive producer. US is supposed to reach theatres next month on March 22, 2019. The film will host its world premiere as the opening night film at the SXSW Film Festival on March 8th.
