NEW YORK (AP) — Jordan Peele’s “Us,” his anticipated follow-up to “Get Out,” will make its world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival.

SXSW announced Tuesday that “Us” will open the 26th edition of the Austin, Texas, festival on March 8. Like Peele’s “Get Out,” ”Us” is a socially minded horror thriller.

The film stars Lupita Nyong’o as a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband and two children. On the vacation, an unresolved trauma from her past is unearthed leading to an eerie confrontation for the family with doppelgangers of themselves.

“Us” will be released March 22 by Universal Pictures. Peele also produces along with Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions. Co-stars include Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker.

SXSW runs March 8-17.

    Back in the day it was called “Talking black while sleeping white.” Left over from the 1970’s Civil Rights Movement.

      Look at the top negros in the civil rights movement Harry Belafonte, Syndey Poetier and Julian Bond all married to white women, that’s why they gets no props me. How in f you protesting racism and lynchings in the south while going home sleeping with a white woman. That’s a pure insult to every ancestor who died at the hands of racist. But thats black people fault for allowing these Hollywood coons to be the face of our movement, they should have sent their asses packing right back to the hills.
