Jordan Peele‘s ‘Us’ is about to hit home video and the release will be packed with extras including six deleted scenes, but you can view one of them early.
In the film, Lupita Nyong’o portrays Adelaide Wilson, who experienced a trauma at an early age, while visiting the beach with her parents. Now, as an adult, she returns to her family’s vacation home with her husband Gabe (Winston Duke), and kids Zora (Shahadi Wright Joseph), and Jason (Evan Alex). Staying nearby is Gabe’s boss, Josh Tyler (Tim Heidecker) and his wife Kitty (Elisabeth Moss), as well as their twin daughters, Becca (Cali Sheldon) and Lindsey (Noelle Sheldon).
While it’s important for Gabe to hobnob with Josh, it’s a lot harder for Adelaide to feign interest in the superficial Kitty. Not only that, but the twins are pretty obnoxious themselves.
Another major subplot revolves around Adelaide’s promising career as a ballet dancer. Several flashbacks depict her dancing as a young girl, a process that her parents hoped would help her recover from her trauma.
In this deleted scene, Adelaide reminisces about her glory days with Kitty, who believes that both women just missed their chances to achieve greatness. Check it out below:
As director Peele stated before ‘Us’ was released:
“You need to see the movie because there are a lot of messages to take away. What I have talked about so far is that we as a culture, we are afraid of invaders. We are afraid of the outsider. Our fear lies in this idea that there’s a bad guy is coming to get us. This movie is about the fact that we are our own worst enemy.”
In addition to the six deleted scenes, the home video releases will include many other extras, including outtakes and featurettes about the making of ‘Us’. The picture will be released on Digital on June 4, with physical releases on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on June 18.
