What is the plot?

Peele is known for not sharing the plot of his films.

Nope’s website doesn’t have an official synopsis, with people assuming what to expect via the trailer.

It follows the story of ranch owners and siblings James and Emerald Haywood (Kaluuya and Keke Palmer) who run Haywood’s Hollywood Horses, named for their great-great-great-grandfather, Alistair E. Haywood, who rode the horse in the first motion picture ever made.

They witness a UFO and decide to set up a camera to capture it on film and make a quick buck, but the aliens are not happy.

Who plays in Nope?

Nope will star British actor Daniel Kaluuya as Jim Haywood, who Peele previously worked on with Get Out.

What did the reviews say?

Nope has received mixed reviews in the press, but currently has an 81% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it part of their Fresh series.

In its review, The Guardian gave it a two star rating out of five, describing it as “a little meh”.

While Empire Magazine gave it a five out of five rating, calling it “An ambitious, provocative swing, Nope feels like that increasingly rare beast: an original blockbuster.”

Speaking to GQ Magazine about Nope, Peele explained, “I felt like the big summer blockbuster extravaganza movie, and the Great American Flying Saucer Story in particular is something I didn’t feel fully represented my perspective on.”

He added, “We need to make this big original blockbuster, and that in itself is part of what the film is about.

“It’s about occupying that space. It’s about existence. It’s about acknowledging the people who were wiped out on the way here.”
