First Glance: “Nope”

To say Jordan Peele’s filmmaking career has started with a bang would be an understatement. His debut picture “Get Out” released to almost unheard of adoration and praise (I’m still trying to figure that one out. It’s a pretty good movie, but one with plenty of first-time writer/director missteps). His next film “Us” was a major step up for Peele and features one of the best performances in recent years from Lupita Nyong’o. And that brings us to his third feature, “Nope”.

The long-awaited first trailer dropped hours before this year‘s Super Bowl and to say it’s intriguing would also be an understatement. There’s not much revealed in terms of plot, but it definitely gives us a good sense of the vibe Peele is going for. It also sees Peele reteaming with Daniel Kaluuya, an actor with a lot of intensity but who generally only works at one temperature. But the rest of the cast excites me more, especially Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun. I like what this trailer teases and I’m excited to see where “Nope” goes.

“Nope” is scheduled to release in theaters July 22nd. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
