Over a century of filmmaking, moviegoers have been able to enjoy the work of countless critically acclaimed directors. The number of inventive filmmakers who have managed to get their work into theaters has grown dramatically over this time, to the benefit of moviegoers and filmmaking overall. One of the latest names to add to the list of critically acclaimed directors would be Jordan Peele, notorious for his satirical takes on rather touchy subjects that elicit a visceral response from fans. Now he is back for his next endeavor: this week Peele and Universal decided to release the official poster and trailer for Peele’s new film Nope and it is certainly interesting to say the least.
Originally finding his place in the entertainment industry as one of the two stars of Comedy Central’s hit series Key & Peele, Peele has become an incredibly talented director who produced several highly regarded films in recent years. 2017’s Get Out, an incredibly jarring satirical take on racism in America, won the Academy Award in 2018, and 2019’s Us grossed over $250 million in box office receipts. It suffices to say that Peele has been on a tear the past few years, and now it looks like his ready to build upon it: this week, Peele and Universal unveiled the official poster and trailer for their latest project together, Nope. The poster, reposted above, is weather vague only featuring a horse seemingly being projected into the air; the trailer is a much different story however, packed with dramatic cuts that only vaguely allude to what the films underlying story that should excite fans to say the least. It should certainly be interesting, with Nope expected to hit theaters on July 22nd.
Jordan Peelee has become one of the hottest names in Hollywood in recent years, and he just continues to build upon his budding legacy. He has already done that quite well with the resume hee has accrued on this farm but it looks like he’s just getting started. Nope will be his next attempt to expand upon said legacy, available for moviegoers in a few moths.
