Jordan Peele‘s sophomore effort Us has already found a huge amount of success this year, considering it managed to take in $70 million USD on its opening weekend.

Following in the footsteps of the Academy Award winning Get Out, Us also had audiences worldwide discussing theories, trying to decipher motifs of duality, and finding hidden symbolism for days after initial viewings. And just like Get Out before it, Us was successfully able to touch upon today’s cultural landscape and showcase a satirical take on society and race, helping it to become one of today’s most culturally relevant films.

Now thanks to a recent video analogy by ScreenPrism, (revamped as The Take by ScreenPrism), the symbolism, themes, deeper messages in Us have been unsurfaced. Take a watch above to see what you might have missed during your initial viewing of the film.

In related news, Jordan Peele himself explains the ending of Us. Warning, the aforementioned posts contains spoilers.
