Lupita Nyong'o in Us

Cape Town – Us - Jordan Peele's highly-anticipated follow-up to his terrifying and psychologically incisive Oscar-winning debut feature, Get Out – hits South African cinemas this weekend.

MUST-READ: Flying to Hollywood, meeting Jordan Peele, chatting with Lupita Nyong'o, and getting the very first look at the hauntingly stunning masterpiece that is 'Us'

Also showing: Disney's disappointing live-action remake of Dumbo, A harrowing retelling of the attack on 12 locations in the city of Mumbai in 2008, and a film about a presidential front-runner who was caught by the press having an elicit affair.

HERE ARE THE 4 NEW MOVIES TO SEE:

Movie: Us

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: Stemming from the idea that we are our own worst enemy, Jordan Peele's Us is as terrifying and psychologically incisive as his Oscar-winning debut feature, Get Out.
