Every Hidden Meaning In The Trailer For ‘Us,’ The New Jordan Peele Movie

  • Published on Dec 27, 2018
  • A breakdown of everything you missed in the trailer for “Us,” Jordan Peele’s newest horror film following “Get Out.” The movie, which stars “Black Panther” co-stars Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke in addition to Elisabeth Moss, will come out in March 2019.
    The trailer features off-beat snapping to the Luniz track "I Got 5 On It," lots of rabbit imagery (which was also featured in "Get Out"), sealed mouths, scissors, "V" shapes, and more.

    You want to see something that's a trip?
    Open another browser instance and go here:
    This is the official trailer. Go to :18
    Notice how this one screen starts with mom looking in the back seat. You see outside the wife's window that the grassy hills are passing them left to right because the car is going forward.

    Now look at :40 on this preview on this video and you see outside of the wife's window and you will see the grassy hills going from right to left.
    (the opposite of above).
    If you slow down the video, (with the pin wheel icon "settings") and notice the part where the daughter in the back seat is saying "its about drugs" she is saying that in reverse because this video portion is in reverse.
    Either this guy reversed the video or its that way in the real movie.

    Looks like the little boy (bad version) can create fire. The fireplace lights up when he walks in front of it. The car, as well as holding up a flame when talking to the normal version of the boy.

    One thing that wasn’t mentioned: the tethered don’t have eyebrows, at least for the main family

  • Chi Hin Li

    Maybe they are bounded because they share the same look/identity, and the Tethered want to kill their "true" counterpart to eliminate this connection?

  • Shannon Gillespie

    The scissors reminded me of those two entities in the book "insomnia" by Stephen King. The scissors are used to severe the ethereal cord which keep us alive while keeping us bound to our souls. The size, shape and color of the scissors reminded me. In the book the entities are seen as terrifying but they are the ones who cut the cord that binds us to the illusion of being separate physical bodies. The ones who cut our silver ethereal cords free us from the nightmare of being apart from our creator and everything else. They are short little bald guys in lab jackets if I remember right.

    To paraphrase: “Hands that belong to white people, Their evil double tethers”...
    How much more can Hollywood screenwriters lick the boots of those whose rise against an entire white race? Jesus.
    No one wants to think this much in a theater. This ideal is killing the entire experience of “entertainment”. Symbolic masterpiece or racially charged content shrouded with innuendo against white people? RIP HOLLYWOOD. What a fitting epitaph. I won’t see a film by a creator so hellbent on brow beating white people today for the sins of a socially demonstrative generation that none of us had any control over.

    I think lupitas character might be the tethered version of herself. If the little girl is lupitas character in the past then she killed the real version of herself and grew up and had a normal life. Which is why she seemed to know what was going on.

    The son with them pre-beach scene is their son, the son with them post-beach scene is one of the "tethered" I think. All of the other tethers are physically identical to their counterpart, except the boy - he is burned, particularly around the mouth. I don't think that is by accident. I think either the son is an impostor from the get-go, or the son is at some point swapped and the mouth is burned so they can't communicate. I think Lupita and the boy are impostors which is why she says, "stick with me, ill keep you safe". I could be way off though. We all could be way off haha.

    I’ve got it lol, the dopplegangers are the reallllllll them figuratively speaking Nd the actual family are the facade they hide behind, the son is a narcissist and hides it behind the mask, the black woman is crazyyyy because she try’s to be this reallllll black woman(what is that) but isn’t reallyyyy that, the daughter wants to be lighter and smaller, the dad is actually containing a lot of rage.....

    This movie is about the sentiment:
    You can change as much as you like but your past will always follow you...that is our burden as black people and then showing that white people also have a past is the reply “but what about you becky??!” And thats what us is about...if im right...this perfect timing because of what happened to kevin hart & the Oscars

    Mom: sad/traumatized Tethered: only smiles

    Girl: cares about looks tethered: ugly maybe doesn’t care about looks no eyebrows.
    Boy:always talking questioning tethered:quiet

  • NCT
    NCT 5 days ago

    (Sry idk the names) The mom has witnessed/dealt with her tethered self as a child which is why the tethered version she’s dealing with herself is a child version of her (+ they’re in her hometown) and she knows more now that her entire family is dealing with it. And I believe she tried to kill the tethered version of her son with the fire but he survives which might mean they have to kill their own doppelgänger. If they do have to kill their own I have this feeling the boy won’t want to do so because they seem to be the closest..?

    I think the little girl is a younger version of Lupita, since she’s never seen with her now family, and the vintage clothing and vibe suggests that it was when someone was younger. Lupita’s character is the only one who knows about the ‘tether’ and she seems to be the one who’s doing the most in order to get rid of them. The little girl (Lupita as a child) was also seen in the asylum/school/laboratory so I’m assuming she either lost her family to tethers, or she is a one herself.

    Look up ‘I got 5 on it’ on the urban dictionary... one of the meanings is “I’m on it” or “I’m in control of the situation.” In the movie Adelaide and her family struggle to kill off their doppelgängers who are causing chaos, and bringing back past traumas that happened to her... she doesn’t want anything to do with her past, maybe something terrible has happened like a loved one that died a tragic death, or it could be something so terrible that happened to HER that traumatized her at a young age, that caused her to flee off and start a new life else where, THINKING at that time that leaving a situation, would solve itself.... not knowing that going back years later, the “problem” has gotten worst and has been waiting for her return.... i think that after she left NorCal when she was little (because of whatever happened) thru the years while she was growing up else where, living life, and forgetting her past, everything that happened grew so surreal, that the doppelgängers decided to take fate in their own hands and started terrorizing people for all those years that Adelaide was gone.... therefore awaiting Adelaide and her family’s arrival for an eventful ending to their happiness🤫🤭
    Edit: I think the only way to kill the doppelgängers are with those scissors, because if u skip to 0:29, notice between the clones, there are a pair of scissors between each person that keeps the link together... that’s why the clips where they tried to kill their clones didn’t keep them dead, bc they’re using different weapons and not the scissors👀🤯
