Jordan Peele’s latest directorial outing – Nope – is delayed by a few weeks, and won’t be with us until August.
Originally due to be released on 22nd July, Jordan Peele’s Nope will now hit UK cinemas on August 12th, according to the film’s official page on the Universal Pictures website.
Nope is Peele’s third directorial effort, following 2017’s Oscar winning Get Out and 2019’s Us. As ever, little is known about Peele’s plot, one of the many joys of the previous two films was the many, many surprises, twists and turns incorporated throughout each script. What we do know, though, is that it is set in an isolated town in California and that James and Jill Haywood, played by Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer respectively, witness a ‘mysterious and abnormal event’.
See the trailer below.
