The American filmmaker who brought us ‘Get Out’ and ‘Us’ is now ready to make his way back into the box office with his new upcoming film, ‘Nope,’ which will launch in movie theaters next month.
Since his multi-award-winning 2017 debut ‘Get Out,’ Peel has since become one of America’s best filmmakers to date. ‘Get Out’ has since become one of the most talked-about films in Hollywood. After his debut film ‘Us,’ his second movie also did exceptionally well in theaters.
Peele has been credited for investing in what critics call “elevated horror’ as he adds issues and topics like race relations, social issues, and pop culture references in his movies.
Fans of Peele are more than excited for the release of his new film ‘Nope’ because it, unlike his other films, has a hint of a sci-fi twist. Peele seems to be combining horror and science fiction as he explores what appears to be an alien landing, something utterly different from what he usually releases.
As for the actors, Daniel Kaluuya will team up again with Peele for the first time since his Award-winning Academy debut in Peele’s film ‘Get Out.’ Alongside Kaluuya will be Keke Palmer as Jill Haywood, Steven Yeun as Brian, and Michael Wincott as Craig. Terry Notary, Barbie Ferreira, and Brandon Perea are also said to be in the film.
Peele has been very vocal about his journey with this movie, stating, “This film is definitely a ride. The title speaks to the idea of being in tune with what the audience thinks and feels in the theater. I know a lot of people who say when it’s a scary movie, they say, ‘Nope!’ Especially Black audiences, right? We love horror, but there’s skepticism.”
The official trailer for the movie was released last week and is said to give audiences a more extensive idea about what the film will feature.
