Universal Pictures brings Jordan Peele’s critically acclaimed horror film “Us” to stunning 4K HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital — packed with special features.
“US is a wildly successful feat pulled off by a one-man powerhouse of director, writer, and producer. It leans towards a more traditional notion of horror with the amount of frights and suspense when compared to its predecessor GET OUT, but still acts a conduit for Peele’s earnest messages.” – Morbidly Beautiful
Academy Award® winner Jordan Peele follows the success of his blockbuster hit, GET OUT, with the masterfully executed and viscerally terrifying US. Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a score of 94%, the film is being hailed as “a colossal cinematic achievement” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker) and is “meant to be watched over and over” (Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine/Vulture).
Beginning today, June 18, Us comes to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, DVD and On Demand.
