Jordan Peele’s third feature film, Nope, is hitting theaters this weekend. The sci-fi/horror-comedy blockbuster is expected to earn a good amount of money at the box office.
Experts say it might reach the $50 million mark in its opening weekend, and it’s certainly off to a solid start with a $6.4 million Thursday night preview. It premiered in over 3,250 theaters last night and will expand to even more theaters tonight.
His previous horror flick, Us, managed to land $7.4 million in its Thursday night preview back in March of 2019, so the numbers aren’t too far off. Us went on to make $71 million in its opening weekend, the best opening for an R-rated horror film.
How do the films match up when it comes to the critics? Well, they’re fairly close. Us has a 93% rating on the site, and Nope currently sits at 81%, but of note, Nope currently holds the better audience score, although it’s likely that number drops as more votes come in.
Nope was made on a $68 million budget, not including marketing costs, so it’s likely closer to $100 million.
The good news is that it should make that back and more, once its run in theaters is complete.
Jordan Peele has already shown he’s an outstanding filmmaker. His first two films, Get Out and Us, received outstanding reviews from critics and were both hits at the box office.
And now he’s ready to return to theaters with his third feature, the horror-comedy, Nope. And this film promises to be a little different than his first two movies. He went big with this one. Working with a bigger budget and tackling a bigger idea… ALIENS!
It’s more of a summer blockbuster than his first two movies, and according to the early reactions, it’s going to be worth the price of admission.
Nope hits theaters this weekend, so get your tickets now! Screenings are selling out! The movie stars Keke Palmer, Daniel Kaluuya and Steven Yeun.
Well, the third and final trailer for Jordan Peele’s upcoming horror-thriller, Nope, was released by Universal Studios this week. And unlike the two previous trailers, this one actually reveals the film’s plot.
So if you want to go in with little to no information, we suggest clicking away from this article.
We knew the film, which stars Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer had something to do with a ranch and aliens, but now we know what Palmer and Kaluuya’s characters are up to.
Thanks to the aliens hovering above their ranch, they hatch a scheme to capture and sell the first authentic footage of UFOs.
As with his previous films, Peele wrote and directed this flick. In addition to Palmer and Kaluuya, this movie co-stars Steven Yeun, Barbie Ferreira and Brandon Perea.
If this third and final trailer is anything to go by, it looks like this movie might be a little more comedic/light than ‘Us’ and ‘Get Out’ but you never really know with Peele. He likes to switch on you fast.
‘Nope’ is expected to hit a theater near you on July 22, 2022. Check out the final trailer below…
We have been waiting for the first ‘Nope’ trailer for months now. The poster was released last year, and ever since then, the internet has been speculating on the film’s plot.
Well, Jordan Peele dropped the first trailer during the Super Bowl on Sunday, and as expected, we still don’t know exactly what the movie is about.
But we do have a clearer picture. It certainly appears that this will be an alien invasion horror story, which is what we thought when the poster dropped. According to the trailer, Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya star as two animal trainers in Hollywood who specialize in horses.
During a night at their ranch, something spooky drops from the sky, and well, after that the trailer gets all kinds of weird.
In addition to Palmer and Kaluuya, ‘Nope’ stars Steven Yeun and Barbie Ferreira. This will be Peele’s first feature film since 2019’s ‘Us’
‘Nope’ will hit theaters on July 22 in the states, and then a couple weeks later across the world.
After the success of ‘Get Out’ and ‘Us’ Jordan Peele is back with another horror/thriller, although this one might also mix a bit of sci-fi as well.
‘Nope’ is expected to hit theaters on July 22, 2022, and to celebrate the upcoming release, Universal Pictures plans to drop the first trailer on Super Bowl Sunday.
But before we get there, they teased us with the first look you see below. In the clip, near the end, you can see the first images from the film, featuring Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun. They all appear to be looking at something above them in the sky.
Which makes sense, because this is the poster…
This is why we speculate that there might be a sci-fi element to this. Plot details are still not known, and honestly, the trailer probably won’t tell us much. Peele loves to keep his movies a surprise.
Nope is also notable for teaming Peele and cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema, who has become Christoper Nolan’s go-to director of photography in recent years after shooting ‘Interstellar,’ ‘Dunkirk’ and ‘Tenet.’ Hoytema will also be shooting Nolan’s next directorial effort, the atom bomb drama ‘Oppenheimer.’
Peele is bringing out the big guns for this one, and we can’t wait to check it out. JULY 22, GET YO’ POPCORN READY!
We have some good news for all you Jordan Peele fans! Filming has been completed on his most recent feature, Nope. It’ll be his third feature following the success of ‘Get Out’ and ‘Us’
Not much is known about this movie, but we do know it was shot on Kodak film, including 65mm film in IMAX format. So he shot this film for IMAX, which probably means he’s working with the biggest budget he’s ever worked with.
I’d expect this film to be “bigger” than his previous films. We know it has an impressive cast, which includes Keke Palmer, Daniel Kaluuya and Steven Yeun.
We also know that Hoyte van Hoytema served as the cinematographer, which is pretty significant. Hoytema has worked on big films like Dunkirk, Interstellar and Tenet.
It’s clear Peele wanted to work with the best of the best for this feature. We still don’t know any details surrounding the film’s plot, but the poster is giving us a sci-fi/horror vibe.
‘Nope’ is expected to hit theaters on July 22, 2022, which means a trailer should drop sometime in late winter/early spring 2022. We’ll keep you posted.
We have been waiting months to hear more about Jordan Peele’s latest flick, and thankfully today (July 22) we’re getting a little more information. Just a little though.
The filmmaker revealed the title and the first poster for his next project. The movie is titled ‘Nope‘ and it’s set to star Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun. As most of you know, Peele previously worked with Oscar-winner Kaluuya on his debut feature, Get Out.
Check out the poster below…
What does it mean? No idea. We don’t really know anything else about the project, beyond the cast, title, release date and this poster.
He didn’t even provide us with a logline, and he probably won’t for a long time. We probably won’t get more information until the trailer drops sometime early next year, at least that’s our best guess.
Of note, on the IMDB page for this project, there’s an actor credited as a “Fry’s Customer” and an actor credited as “Kid Sheriff”
What does that tell us? Not sure. Fry’s was a big box electronics store, which recently shut down all stores due to the changes in the retail industry and COVID-19. So it’s possible one of the characters works at a Fry’s, or maybe some aliens take over a store. Or maybe all the electronics in the world cause some sort of mayhem.
I DON’T KNOW! WHY IS THERE A KID SHERIFF? We’ll just have to wait for more answers.
