The First Word Podcast - Jordan Peele's Us

"They look exactly like us. They think like us. They know where we are. We need to move and keep moving. They won't stop until they kill us… or we kill them." On this episode of The First Word podcast we dive right into a full-on, discussion covering all aspects of Jordan Peele's new horror film Us, his second feature following the highly successful Get Out (from 2017). Friends Alex Billington (@firstshowing) and Mike Eisenberg (@Eisentower30) team up to bring you a podcast providing in-depth discussion, analysis, and interviews about the latest movies, and some old ones too. For this episode, our friend and fellow podcaster Aaron Neuwirth (@aaronsps4 of the Out Now podcast) join us as our guest for this discussion about Us and why it's such an outstanding film. We talk about everything so watch out for spoilers. Listen in below.

Thanks guys! I don't think it will be in Japan anytime soon, so I am going to spoil myself by listening to the podcast.

No! Don't spoil it! You can wait, no? Can't be that long? It's better to save all the surprises for the film.

Alex Billington on Mar 28, 2019


Yeah, that would be ideal, no? But yeah, Japan takes absurdly long to get smaller releases. Only blockbusters get same week or month releases here. I think HEREDITARY took 8 months to get here.
