The mysterious trailer for Jordan Peele’s Nope contains all kinds of tantalising hints, not to mention a release date too. 

Since Jordan Peele’s last film as director – 2019’s Us – was released to further acclaim following his Oscar win for Get Out, we’ve been looking forward to his next directorial project. It’s entitled Nope, and was announced last year.

It will  be distributed by Universal, as with Peele’s last two pictures. Production wrapped in December, although what the film’s story entails continues to be shrouded in secrecy.

The film’s first trailer has just launched,  although don’t expect to find too much in there in the way of plot details. It looks to us that Hollywood itself may be in for Peele’s unique brand of satire this time round, whilst there’s one or two moments in the trailer that suggest the filmmaker may be taking this flick into the terrifying realms of extraterrestrial abduction. The cast includes the Oscar-winning Daniel Kaluuya, who worked with Peele on Get Out, and has gone on to do all kinds of terrific work since. There’s also Keke Palmer, Stephen Yeun and Michael Wincott also featuring.

We know that Peele has shot in the 65mm IMAX format which means the film should look spectacular, whilst we also now have a release date of 22nd July 2022. We’ll bring you more as we hear it with Nope, but expect plot details to remain scarce.
