NOPE, the new blockbuster UFO sci-fi/horror movie from actor and director, Jordan Peele which has already been released in theaters in the US last month, is now set to premiere in cinemas across the UK next week.
There has been a lot of secrcy regarding the plot of the movie, nothing official has been publicised on the movie’s website. As always with Peele’s films, the less you know about the plot beforehand, the better.
Oscar winner Jordan Peele disrupted and redefined modern horror with Get Out (2017) and then Us (2019). Now, he reimagines the summer movie with a new pop nightmare: the expansive horror epic, Nope.
The film reunites Peele with Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Judas and the Black Messiah), who is joined by Keke Palmer (Hustlers, Alice) and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun (Minari, Okja) as residents in a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery.
Two siblings who run a California horse ranch discover something wonderful and sinister in the skies above, and the owner of an adjacent theme park tries to profit from the mysterious, otherworldly phenomenon. (Rotten Tomatoes)
Nope, also co-stars Michael Wincott (Hitchcock, Westworld) and Brandon Perea (The OA, American Insurrection).
Last week Daniel Kaluuya appeared on BBC’s The One Show. Kaluuya was asked by presenter, Alex Jones what the movie was about as the trailer is “a bit tricky to explain.” Kaluuya responded; “It’s about this guy, OJ (Daniel Kaluuya) and something happens that is odd at the beginning of the film. He runs this ranch and at the ranch there are horses that supply stunts for Hollywood films. His sister comes back into the fold, and then they spot something in the sky and they want to capture it in some sort of way, shape or form. It’s about the brother and sister trying to fight for the ranch, essentially.”
Still a little confused? Hopefully the trailer might give you a little bit more a teaser.
NOPE is set to release in UK cinemas August 12 and is available to go and watch in US theaters now.
