We don’t know what it’s about—but Jordan Peele’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning debut, Get Out, now has a title and a rumored cast.

The film is called Us, which Peele just announced on his Twitter.

Variety then reports that Lupita Nyong’o, Elisabeth Moss, and Winston Duke are all in talks for lead roles. I mean, damn.

The film has a release date of March 15, 2019 but no one has any idea what it’s about. The only clues we have are that the poster says it’s “a new nightmare”—and that image, which looks like a heart... if it was made up of a human and what might possibly be a monster.

Whatever it is, we can’t wait.

Can someone explain why Get Out was so highly regarded? I watched it with absolutely no advanced knowledge other than, it was highly regarded and it was horror (I enjoy horror a lot).

I found it to be extremely predictable and not the least bit scary. It felt like your average suspense/horror (though, I really don’t see the horror component). I just really don’t get how the movie gets so many accolades.

The actors were good, but there wasn’t necessarily a standout performance by any means. While I like the main character (as I did in his appearance in Black Mirror), I wouldn’t call him phenomenal. He’s rather mechanical in his delivery (unless he’s been typecast to do just that, as that’s how he was in Black Mirror as well).

I found movies like The Conjuring series and the Annabelle series much scarier and much better in terms of the storytelling and acting.
