Jordan Peele has established himself as one of Hollywood''s most well-known filmmakers for his original genre films in the five years since Get Out was released. His latest release, Nope, is one of the most anticipated of the summer, with its cryptic trailer promising another genre-bending, politically charged thriller from Peele, albeit one that includes UFOs.
The film, which stars Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer as a brother and sister who runs Hollywood''s only Black-owned horse ranch, has sparked a lot of interest from filmmakers about their UFO plotlines. Though a new Jordan Peele movie will always be revealed in mystery until the credits roll, the filmmaker has provided some additional information to keep fans informed as soon as the film comes out.
Peele spoke in a press conference with Fandango, saying, "I want to create a large-scale science fiction film that would bring audiences back to theaters."
Peele said that when we were a little bit concerned about cinema''s future, I wanted to create a spectacle. I wanted to create something that the audience would have to attend.
Peele shifted to a subject that has sparked an endless cinematic fascination over the years: aliens.
So I set my sights on the great American UFO story, according to him. And the film itself deals with spectacle, and the good and bad that come from this idea of attention. It''s a horror epic, but it has some elements in it that are intended to provoke an overwhelming outcry.
Peele spent a while relaxing examining the audible reactions he wanted to provoke from audiences, so that he named the film after a word he wants audiences to yell in the theaters.
When we go see it, we would then hear a lot of nope,'' he said.
On Friday, July 22, Universal Pictures will release Nope in cinemas.
