The trailer for Jordan Peele‘s third horror movie Nope has arrived and it looks like we could be in for a good old-fashioned UFO horror movie.
The plot of the movie is still relatively unknown because Peele fancies himself as a combination of Hitchcock and Shyamalan and likes to keep audiences guessing. The trailer pretty much lays out most of the details but you know there will be twists a plenty and lots of jump scares.
Nope stars Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer as siblings OJ and Emerald Haywood who own a horse training ranch. By the looks of things, Emerald looks like she’s an insufferable narcissist hungry for fame. OJ seems to enjoy the simpler life which gets turned upside down when he sees a UFO frequents the skies over his home.
Determined to get the fame she craves, Emerald sets out to get the ”Oprah shot” of the UFO and broadcast it to the world. The trailer gives us plenty of quick shots that are typical of Peele’s signature filmmaking but doesn’t give us any answers, only more questions.
Nope follows Peele’s two previous horror films Get Out, which won the Oscar in 2018 for original screenplay and also starred Daniel Kaluuya, and Us in 2019.
I love UFO movies so I’ll be checking this out on 22nd July when it is released. I just hope Emerald gets abducted early so I don’t have to sit through 2 hours of her show-offy nonsense.
