Fans of Jordan Peele Are Full of Us Movie Theories, and 5 Top the List As the Best Out There
Everyone with an Us movie theory may be completely wrong, but it's still fun to make them.
Director and screenwriter Jordan Peele has had movie lovers wild with anticipation for his follow-up feature to Get Out, Us, ever since the release of the first trailer. And with it, Us movie theories started to trickle across the internet. The second trailer only made more people share their Us movie theories, and soon, SXSW attendees will get to know exactly what Us theories were correct, or whether everyone is wrong.
The unfortunate thing about Us premiering at SXSW is that all of us who are not at the screening on March 8 may have Us spoilers to contend with until the movie opens in theaters on March 22. You can avoid reviews, but there’s always someone who thinks it is a good idea to post a spoiler on social media or even a hint at what the big twist may be, and the moviegoing experience is ruined. You still see the film, but the experience is not the same.
Given the excitement and amount of Us movie theories circulating, we can only hope that the internet-verse does not post Us spoilers before the masses have had a chance to see the movie in theaters. It’s only good measure, though, to know what Us movie theories exist so when you do watch Us, you can see how good movie aficionados are at guessing movie twists or whether these Us fans are taking things too far.
5 Us Movie Theories You Need to Know
5. There Are Aliens in Jordan Peele’s Us
4. Us Borrows From The Island and Cloning
Remember The Island with Scarlett Johansson and Ewan McGregor? If not, it’s no surprise because it’s not very good, but its overall story is interesting: If you have the means, you can create clones who will live normally until you need an organ from them. There’s an Us movie theory that likens the doppelgängers to clones.
And one last bit of information from davinpantz: The rabbits are part of the cloning experiments, too.
3. The Us Clones Can’t Be Killed By Just Anyone
The Us movie theories out there love the idea of cloning, and here’s another that takes cloning and goes a bit deeper into the logistics of it.
2. Us Wants to Show Us Who We Are Not
1. Us Is a Sequel to Get Out
The favorite of all the Us movie theories: Us is a sequel to Get Out, and the family is actually white people in their new bodies and the doppelgängers the real family who has escaped from the sunken place.
There are many variations of this theory out there, but I’m sure you get the idea.
On March 22 all will be revealed, and every Us movie theory found true or false or close to reality. Whether Us is a sequel to Get Out or not, and whether clones are real or alien, is all up for grabs at this point. Just make sure to grab a ticket to Us now, so you don’t miss seeing it before spoilers are everywhere.
