The hype surrounding the world premiere of Jordan Peele’s “Us” movie at the SXSW Festival in Austin was pretty epic to say the least. And, of course, Peele and Lupita Nyong’o were on hand, adding more buzz to the first look.

“Us” was originally scheduled to release next week, but the studio pushed it back to March 21 to exclusively debut the film at SXSW 2019. It’s a smart move but we know everybody’s not happy about it.

“Us” follows the success of Peele’s Oscar-winning “Get Out” and seems to follow the same format of leaving movie-goers on edge but simultaneously craving more.

“I hope it’s the kind of film that makes people want to talk about it, kind of unpack the ideas in it. I think that’s what Jordan Peele does so well. you know he gives us a lot to think about and so I hope audiences feel that way about it,” said Nyong’o.

The horror follows a family a four whose life turns upside down when their doppelgangers start terrorizing them.

Nyong’o said it was “exhausting” playing two characters who are trying to kill each other.

“It was a serious challenge and it was about finding a distinct vocabulary for each character and like trying to sort it out in my head long enough to be able to play them.”

“Us” is out in wide release in U.S. cinemas on 22 March.

Cannes Film festival has kicked off with an interesting start! On Saturday, moments before the premiere of a controversial Argentine documentary, centering abortion rights, dozens of women used the red carpet as a meeting place to protest against the issue.

The group of women reportedly included filmmakers who wore green ahead of the premiere of Argentine director Juan Solanas’ “Let It Be Law.”

Argentina’s Senate rejected a bill to legalize abortion last year. A modified version of the bill will be presented to Congress on May 28, per AP.

On Tuesday, the Alabama Senate passed a bill that would outlaw almost all abortions in the state, including those involving pregnancies from rape or incest.

Octavia Spencer hit the red carpet at the premiere of her new horror movie “Ma” on Thursday night (May 16) at the Regal LA Live in downtown Los Angeles.

“I am really excited! It’s a labor of love,” she said during a brief interview where she discussed her role as Sue Ann.

Spencer plays a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. She described the character as “very different” but still thrilled to have the opportunity to take on the character.

“I like not being contained but keeping her grounded in every way possible,” she continued. “We’ve all been teenagers at some point in our lives and I think that’s what’s so relatable about Sue Ann. We’ve all been on the outside looking in at some point, especially as kids.”

The Oscar-winning actress was joined at the event by her co-stars Allison Janney, Juliette Lewis, Diana Silvers, Corey Fogelmanis, McKaley Miller, Kyanna Simone Simpson, Gianni Paolo, Dante Brown, and Tanyell Waivers.

Director Tate Taylor made an appearance as well. Taylor previously worked with Spencer on the award-winning motion picture “The Help” in 2011.

“Ma” lands in theaters May 31.
