AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Jordan Peele has a lot to live up to, after the success of his directorial debut "Get Out," which won him an Oscar for best original screenplay.

The filmmaker brought his anticipated sophomore effort, "Us" to premiere at SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, on Friday.

Stars Lupita Nyong'o, Elisabeth Moss and Winston Duke joined him on the red carpet.

"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 March 22.
