Famous Irish faces stepped out for an exclusive first look of Jordan Peele’s Us on Thursday evening at The Stella Theatre, Ranelagh.

After sending shockwaves across contemporary culture and setting a new standard for provocative, socially-conscious horror films with his directorial debut, Get Out, Academy Award®-winning visionary Jordan Peele returns with another original nightmare that he has written, directed and produced.
Us currently has a perfect 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes since it premiered at SXSW in Texas last Friday, March 8. Reviews raved about Lupita Nyong’o’s performance and cemented Jordan Peele as a risk-taking visionary filmmaker who delivers on his follow-up film to GET OUT.
Starring Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o and Black Panther’s Winston Duke, Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
