New image gives another look at Lupita Nyong'o in Jordan Peele's Us

Us Jordan Peele Lupita Nyong'o

Yesterday a pair of images released through Entertainment Weekly (that's a cut-down version of one of them above) gave us our first look at US, which is one of the most highly anticipated horror films of 2019 since it's the second feature from GET OUT writer/director Jordan Peele. Now Empire has gotten their hands on an exclusive image from the film, one that was selected by Peele himself.

That new image can be seen below, and Peele told Empire that it 

captures Adelaide (played by Lupita Nyong'o) as she approaches the threshold of a nightmarish journey, prepared to kill anything everything in her way."

Peele describes US as his attempt to create a monster mythology, as it will introduce monsters called The Tethered. We have no idea exactly what these Tethered things are, but we do know that the story of the film is 

set in the present day and 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…

Nyong'o is joined in the cast by Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon, and Madison Curry.

Word is that the trailer for US is going to be released on Christmas. The film itself is scheduled to reach theatres on March 15, 2019.
