The weather is heating up as summer draws closer, but there’s no need to spend time outdoors when movie theaters have plenty of films for us to go watch. And when it comes to summer movies, at the very top of our list is Jordan Peele’s Nope.
Everyone who has seen the trailer for Nope, has been speculating about what the movie could be about. Peele is keeping fans in the dark with this movie, but, honestly? We’re here for it. Going into a movie without knowing much about it can turn into a great time. Not to mention, I think Peele has earned our trust when it comes to brilliant stories.
If you’re not excited about Nope, or simply feel indifferent about it, here’s why you need to start caring.
Jordan Peele’s Nope is the most anticipated movie of the summer
The synopsis for Nope doesn’t offer too much information. The plot description only shares that residents in an isolated town in California witness a “mysterious” and “abnormal” event. And, in the trailer, we see these residents looking up at the sky in horror. Aliens, maybe? That’s the most popular guess. But the mystery factor isn’t the only reason we’re all highly anticipating its release.
Jordan Peele quickly grew a fan following after this directorial debut, Get Out, became a hit at the box office, as well as praised by critics. The horror elements, brilliant acting, unique stories, and the way Peele masterfully connects the plot to real world problems and issues, secured Peele’s place as a great director. We couldn’t wait for Peele’s next project.
Us is the next film Peele directed, wrote, and produced. And while I did enjoy Get Out more, there’s no denying that Us is another hit. And, soon, on July 22, we’ll get to see Nope.
Horror fans can’t wait to see what Nope will bring and what Easter eggs Jordan Peele will throw at us. As much as we love streaming movies from home, Peele’s films are made for the big-screen. And it doesn’t get better than the summertime to go to the movies.
As if we needed another reason, there’s also the brilliant cast. Daniel Kaluuya is back! The Get Out and Black Panther star is joined by Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Euphoria‘s Barbie Ferreira, and more. Don’t wait for this movie to become available on streaming, watch it on the big screen! And then stream it when available from home, we have a feeling this movie is going to be one to watch multiple times, just like Get Out and Us.
Jordan Peele’s Nope is in theaters on July 22, 2022.
