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.

    7:27 the “ink blot” by itself in the middle of the heads above the word us. Looks like a fox or badger to me. Though the fox seems more like a good disruption due to the fact that foxes eat rabbits. I don’t know. I’ve been told that I see things that aren’t there. So maybe it’s just my imagination playing tricks on me.

    After watch the rabbit reference 5:22. In the trailer, there is a brief moment where the sister wearing a shirt named 'thỏ' which translated to rabbit. It can be a forshadow that the family is the clone of the tethered that is trying to kill the family. Anyway that's my theory.

  • Irene Alvarez

    Ok maybe I just grading at straws but I think The reference to five has to do with like there were 5 of them one dying like a kid or something that’s why the mom freaked out when the kid was gone for a little bit and the doppelgängers are like there guilt manifested

    I think the boy had already been switched with the other boy at the beach. When he ran off I feel like the mom found the wrong boy. I wrote this before unwatched the full video, (just in case they say sum like that lol). But I feel this way because in the preview, the boy seems to act kind of weird after he runs off at the beach, like nonchalant

  • Cephalon Fisherman

    The guy on the beach is a doppelgänger he has on the red Jumpsuit (you can see under his coat) and 2 bloody fingers; the ones you would use to hold scissors

    What I was trying to say before I went on a tangent...lol...
    The inkblot definitely suggests something very psychological is going to be at the core of this horror thriller...I can’t wait to see it!! 🤗😱

  • Ara cely
    Ara cely Day ago

    A rabbit is also one of the things perceived by some people in the actual Rorschach cards. Sucks you posted the real ones though. I get that no one can legally do anything about that, but it is truly not helpful should anyone need to complete the Rorschach in the future. They can be a particularly useful tool for certain conditions & are not really something you can figure out (for someone who would be trying to “con” the test). Btw, attempts to “con” any type of psychological test is just not gonna work in the person’s favor. We have ways of determining exactly when a person is doing that. Even someone like myself who knows the “answers” & knows how these tests work wouldn’t be able to get any specific results. The results of someone attempting to manipulate just show exactly that & we basically just toss them & say the test is invalid & offers no information. It was a waste of time & it definitely doesn’t look good in court when a psychologist tells the judge the person attempted to manipulate the test - or to an employer if that’s what you’re being tested for.
    Also, other reasons that may cause a test to be invalid/inaccurate (severe mental illness, reading ability, cognitive or intellectual disability, etc.) are able to be distinguished from purposeful manipulation. My suggestion. Just don’t do it. It doesn’t matter what comes up on your tests. We already have impressions about you & tests just help us to support our hypotheses. They are actually more helpful to you when you’re honest & open because 9 times out of ten, you have real problems that need real support & we can’t argue for you to get help instead of being just locked up if we can’t back up our reasoning with solid tests.

    This movie tells you that you’re your biggest enemy and your own biggest fear. The only person that could stop you from doing anything is yourself. This movie also shows that’s what’s done in the dark will come to light. Your past will come back to haunt you. If you don’t repent or straighten up those secrets that you have ...they’ll find you. It’s like karma. What goes around... we’ll definitely come back around. The black family didn’t just have the clones. The white family had clones as well holding hands and working together. When you do wrong it will come back to get you

    I know she Fukin Lyin 3 days ago +2

    I have a theory.
    In the first scenes of the trailer they say, “I got five on it.”
    The five could possibly mean that little girl that didn’t appear in the car with the rest of the family or it’s the mother.
    The family also are convincing themselves that the people they are seeing are real because no one else seems to see The doppelgängers accept for the people who are getting targeted.
    Maybe the family is sleeping but still awake and they meet their doppelgängers throughout dreams.
    The doppelgängers are also what they fear most.
    What I’m saying basically is that the other family is a mix of their worst fears and something else. Also the bunnies being there (Black and white) could mean duality.

  • Anisha LeShaw

    His movies are social satires. Us is the second movie of four. Each focusing on the dangers black people face in society.
    Get Out = the danger black people face from white people.
    Us= the danger that black people face from within their own culture (think black on black violence).
    Movies 3&4 I believe will focus on the dangers black people face from the government and religion.
    These are very dark comedies which stay within Jordan's wheel house, just pushed to the extreme. However, he is a fan of the horror genre, he will be the narrator/producer for the new Twilight Zone series that comes out April 2nd on CBS. Can't wait!!!

    Bruhhh teatherd means tied to a post or fixed to the ground with a rope or chain. Remember it showed the mother with handcuffs on her arm like she have been hunged up on something. That's why it showed the man on the beach on a cross like a scarecrow. I think the people with the orange jump suits where kept captive in an institution. Bonded/restrained. I think the people in the orange jump suits are the original family.

    Wow. I'm dumb. I decided I like being dumb. I would not and don't have the quick capacity to dissect a movie when I'm watching it for the first time to get all of the answers. I just like to watch a movie for the first time and get the initial shock and aw experience. This time I needed answers before I watch it because …. I just would not have gotten all of this on my "dumb" own. LOL I also want to punch him in the face for scarring the hell out of me. He was even scary in some scenes in his show.

    The scissors the Tethered are holding remind me of sewing scissors. The kind you use to separate the thread from the spool from the thread you've sewn into the fabric. Maybe the Tethered are trying to cut the Wilson's out of the fabric of their lives and replace them as the new thread.

    What I got from the two trailers is that lupita’s character is an original tether. I think the original lupita was captured and switched out as a kid. Now that same lupita is out to take control of her new life. If you notice she is the only clone to speak. Let alone lupita talks the most in both trailers and has too much knowledge to just have had a past experience. Just a thought not saying it’s canon lmao so don’t flame me
