Lots of hype has been swirling around director Jordan Peele’s hopeful summer blockbuster NOPE. We really haven’t been given much of an idea of what we are in store for – and I’m afraid this new video does not do much to help us out there but – regardless, it’s a pretty cool behind the scenes look so – might as well have a look.
Giving themselves a pretty high bar to broach by self-proclaiming themselves A Cinematic Event but – time will tell. Here’s how the studio is spinning the release:
“NOPE – Only in Theaters 7.22.22
“What’s a bad miracle?”
Oscar® winner Jordan Peele disrupted and redefined modern horror with Get Out and then Us. 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. Nope, which co-stars Michael Wincott (Hitchcock, Westworld) and Brandon Perea (The OA, American Insurrection), is written and directed by Jordan Peele and is produced by Ian Cooper (Us, Candyman) and Jordan Peele for Monkeypaw Productions. The film will be released by Universal Pictures worldwide.”
July 22nd. All will be revealed.
