Jordan Peele's Us: What we know about the film's story and themes

Nyong'o plays Adelaide Wilson, who returns to her beachside childhood home for a summer getaway with her family–husband Gabe (played by Black Panther's Winston Duke) and their two children.

Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide's paranoia spikes to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to happen to her family, according to a synopsis from SXSW.

Things turn for the worse after Adelaide's son notices a family standing in the driveway. First introduced as dark silhouettes, it is then discovered the haunting figures are doppelgängers of themselves.

Peele has hinted the new movie will examine the "monster within."

"For my second feature, I wanted to create a monster mythology," Peele told Entertainment Weekly . "I wanted to do something that was more firmly in the horror genre but still held on to my love of movies that are twisted but fun."

Peele added that the movie "turns into this relentless nightmare that taps into [Adelaide's] deepest fears and ours as well—the idea that we might be our own worst enemies."

How fans have reacted so far

The Get Out director debuted the film's trailer on Christmas Day last year, with social media users expressing equal amounts of horror and excitement for the March flick.

"If it wasn't clear to everyone before, it should be now, @JordanPeele will go down in history as one of the most influential cinematic geniuses of this generation," one Twitter user wrote. "It's a wonderful time to be alive...if only for this genius."

Other Twitter users have analyzed the movie's trailer to dream up some bone-chilling conspiracy theories.

The doppelgängers are the physical manifestation of having to supress their real selves in the workplace, school, etc.

Suppressing anger over all of the microaggressions in day-to-day life took the form of their clones #UsMovie

"We're gonna found out in Us that the family tryna kill the main characters are the actual heroes and the people we're watching are the villains," another hypothesized.

"Here's my guess for #UsMovie's plot: mom's estranged twin sister experimented with cloning to try to replicate/steal what she sees as her twin's 'perfect life.' Clones are 'tethered' to originals via a twin connection type effect," one Twitter user added.

While some conspiracy theorists simply focused on the plot of Us, others the new film may be connected to Get Out in some way.

Can’t wait for this. And not to sound like a conspiracy theorist but....are you telling us to Get out @JordanPeele 🤔

It hasn't been concluded whether Get Out does, indeed have a connection to Peele's second film; however, no matter the hypothesized conclusions, audiences will have to wait for the truth in the coming weeks.
