Us: How Zora's Sweatshirt Hints at Dangerous Similarities to Her Mother
It's safe to say that if you've already seen Jordan Peele's second box-office hit, Us, you're questioning every minute of the two-hour film. The horror movie is filled to the brim with Easter eggs and hidden messages, and fans continue to find new aspects of the film to try and decode.

Aside from trying to figure out the film's batsh*t-crazy ending, one of the greatest mysteries in Us has been the significance of all the white rabbits hopping around those creepy tunnels. While the furry creatures can be seen almost everywhere in the film (Peele even manages to sneak in a cameo using them), there's one instance of their presence that's so subtle, fans may not have caught it: Zora's sweatshirt.

All throughout the second half of the film, Zora wears a sweatshirt bearing a single word, "Thỏ," which means "bunny" in Vietnamese. Considering how much Peele loves symbolism,

How Old Was "Old Man" Mick Mars When Mötley Crüe Started? The World May Never Know

  • Popsugar
The Netflix biopic The Dirt covers the early days of the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, from their founding through their early days of success. The four-man band was founded in the early 1980s, when its members were young men just starting out their careers, though it's a running joke in the film that Mick Mars is an "old man" compared to the rest of the crew.

While Mötley Crüe devotees can cite plenty of trivia about the band, the exact age of lead guitarist Mars is not one of those facts that can be easily pinpointed, as there's some confusion as to when he was actually born. His birth name is Robert Alan Deal, but his birth date has been reported two different ways. Some sources report that he was born on May 4, 1951, while others claim a later birthday of April 4, 1955. Mars himself has not clarified, and at this point,

Jordan Peele's Us Had the Best Opening For an Original Horror Movie Ever
Jordan Peele has once again struck box-office gold by scaring the bejesus out of people. Two years after his Oscar-winning debut Get Out became a box-office smash, his horrifying follow-up Us has shattered expectations and debuted with $70.3 million in ticket sales, according to estimates from Sunday, March 24.

Us officially came out on Friday, March 22, and opened with $33.4 million domestically before grossing $255.4 million on a $4.5 million budget. According to HuffPost, Us cost $20 million to make, which means that not only did the movie successfully turn audiences off to their own reflections for life, but that the film has already become huge hit for Peele and Universal Pictures. So, all those creepy images and terrifying messages were worth it!

In addition to making a whole lot of money, it's also broken a few records in horror movie history. Us has the biggest opening ever for an original horror movie. On top of that,

The Dirt: The Painful Condition Mick Mars Has Struggled With For Decades
The biopic The Dirt gives some insane inside scoops on the metal band Mötley Crüe, from their scandals to their marriages and more. Along with the drama, there are other serious elements at play, too. Among them: the health struggles of guitarist Mick Mars.

From about the age of 17, Mars has suffered from ankylosing spondylitis, a chronic form of arthritis that causes inflammation of the spine and pelvis. This particular type of arthritis is believed to be caused by a combination of environmental and genetic factors, according to the Spondylitis Association of America, and leads to chronic pain, sometimes worsening over time. There is no cure for the disease, although there are treatments that can potentially slow progression and manage symptoms.

Mars has dealt with the disease for over 40 years at this point, and has become more open about discussing it. He revealed more about his struggle in the band's autobiography,

Us Is Fictional, but Here's the Truth About Those Mysterious Tunnels Under America
Jordan Peele's new thriller Us has become the latest viral sensation, gaining some major traction as audiences buzz about the film's twists and turns. Without going into any serious spoiler territory, the concept of underground tunnel networks plays a big part in the movie's plot. It's a great concept for a tense thriller movie, but is any of it actually plausible in real life?

Author Will Hunt, who wrote the new book Underground: A Human History of the Worlds Beneath Our Feet, spoke with The Wrap about the plausibility of the film's tunnel twists. According to his research, there are, in fact, plenty of empty tunnels beneath our feet. But there's not a sinister explanation for them - it's just boring old infrastructure.

"There are way more tunnels underground wherever you are in the United States than you would imagine," he said. "There are just crazy layers of infrastructure,

Jordan Peele Has a Subtle, Nightmarish Cameo in Us
There are certain film directors out there who really seem to get off on having cameos in their own movies. For some audience members, it's fun to spot Alfred Hitchcock boarding a cable car in the background or seeing how M. Night Shyamalan will shoehorn his way into his latest sci-fi flick (*heavy sigh*). But it seems director Jordan Peele prefers a subtler approach - his cameos are of just his voice. (Don't worry - we won't be spoiling anything for Us below!)

In Get Out, Peele provides the chilling groans of a dying deer that is hit by Daniel Kaluuya's character's car on a back road earlier on in the film. He opted for a similar approach for his cameo in Us, which resulted in a subtle but nightmarish cameo that he revealed while speaking to Fandango about his latest horror masterpiece. Apparently this time around Peele lends

Once You Realize How Important This Color Is to Us, You'll Need to See the Movie Again
Fans of Jordan Peele's latest box office smash, Us, may have spent hours digging up Easter eggs and analyzing eerie imagery only to discover that one of the film's most prominent metaphors is the use of the color red. This motif begins as the film opens on a seaside amusement park one Summer evening in 1986. An 8-year-old girl named Adelaide strolls along the boardwalk with her inattentive parents. Moments later, Adelaide wanders off alone, drawn to a mysterious energy emanating from a funhouse on the beach. The second she begins her solo journey, the color red becomes a dominant symbolic force attempting to warn our doomed protagonist of the dangers to come.

Warning: major spoiler follow.

If you recall, the last thing Adelaide grips in her hand before she enters the house of horrors is a bright red candied apple. The camera lingers on the fruit's glossy surface before she enters the maze.

The Inspiration Behind Lucy in the Sky Is One of the Most Bizarre News Stories of the 2000s

  • Popsugar
At surface level, Lisa Nowak had it all - a wholesome family life and a bustling career as a Nasa astronaut. But just over a decade ago, her life turned a complete 180 degrees. Dressing up in a wig and wearing an adult diaper, she drove over 900 miles to confront the woman whom her ex-lover was seeing, a move that led to her dismissal from Nasa shortly after her successful space mission. Natalie Portman, with cropped hair and a Southern twang, brings a loose adaptation of Nowak's scandal to the big screen this year alongside Jon Hamm in Lucy in the Sky. Suffice to say, the movie doesn't need all that much embellishment, as the real-life debacle that unfolded was truly out of this world.

Nowak's Career

Nowak flourished in a highly accomplished career. In 1987, she became a Naval Flight Officer in Nas Pensacola, Fl, later entering the Nasa Astronaut Corps at the Johnson Space Center.
