Fans of Us will be able to own Academy Award-winner Jordan Peele’s followup to Get Out on Digital come June 4, 2019, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand June 18, 2019.

The Us home release will be giving fans more than 50 minutes of bonus features “delving deep into the mind of Jordan Peele, his filmmaking process and the symbolism” behind his latest successful movie.

The cast includes Academy Award-winner Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Emmy-winner Elisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker.

Here’s the official description:

Set along the North California coastline, Adelaide Wilson (Nyong’o) reluctantly returns to her beachside childhood home with her family and finds that she is haunted by unresolved trauma from her past along with a string of eerie coincidences. As darkness falls after a tense day at the beach, the Wilsons discover four figures standing in their driveway. They soon realize this is only the beginning of their troubles as they find that the four figures are terrifying and uncanny opponents: doppelgängers of themselves.

The Exclusive Bonus Features on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital are:

  • Scene Explorations – The making of three iconic scenes from the film including the Tyler house massacre, Jason’s abduction, and Adelaide’s underground flashback.
