We will get to see more of 'Nope' this Sunday during the Super Bowl.
Jordan Peele is back with yet another horror film and we get a first look this Sunday during the Super Bowl. After the success of his previous projects, Get Out and Us, comes a new one: Nope.
His production company, Monkeypaw Productions shared a short trailer recounting the previous successful projects before announcing the new project. "This Sunday… from the mind of Jordan Peele. NOPE," the post read. The project was written and directed by Peele. We do not know much more about the premise of the project yet. But knowing Peele, it will likely be a chilling social commentary, holding up a mirror to society. The teaser image shared by Peele has a solitary cloud floating above a town.
However, we do know that the film stars Daniel Kaluuya who was also a part of Get Out, Keke Palmer (Jump In!, Winx Club), and Steven Yeun (Minari), and is scheduled to be released by Universal Pictures on July 22, 2022. They will be joined by Michael Wincott (The Crow), Barbie Ferreira (Euphoria), and Brandon Perea (The OA). The film's cinematographer, Hoyte van Hoytema (Dunkirk, Interstellar) confirmed that the film was shot on KODAK film, including 65mm film in IMAX format. The principal photography concluded in November 2021.
Watch the teaser here:
Donna Langley of Universal Studios, said of Peele, "Jordan has established himself as a premier voice and original storyteller with global appeal. He is leading a new generation of filmmakers that have found a way to tap into the cultural zeitgeist with groundbreaking content that resonates with audiences of all backgrounds. We also share an important goal with Monkeypaw when it comes to increasing representation on-screen in the characters that are portrayed, the stories that are told, and the people who tell them." Get Out and Us were also films made with Universal that went on to become huge commercial successes.
Peele was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay for Get Out, and won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Speaking to The Guardian, the comedian and actor had said about Us, "You know, it doesn’t feel too different. With Get Out, I had the fear that if it went wrong, it would go terribly wrong. I don’t have that fear with this movie, but of course, there’s the fear of betraying the expectations of somebody who wants, essentially, Get Out 2, and what happens when they realize this is a very, very different movie." We can soon expect another brilliant story from the 42-year-old filmmaker.
