Director and comedian Jordan Peele has given us a tease of his new upcoming horror film. Peele who directed the award-winning horror films Get Out and Us revealed the poster for his new film, Nope, on his Twitter account earlier this week.
Much like his other films, the film title and poster is very vague. But that has not stopped fans of Peele’s films in theorizing and analyzing the new promotional material.
Nope Poster Speculation
While many people will say the poster is very simple, fans of Peele’s work know not to underestimate it. Mainly because we know it’s going to be a horror film, and Peele has shown a knack for layering subliminal imagery, as shown in the teaser posters of his previous films like Get Out and Up.
On the poster we see the three main stars of the film: Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, and Steven Yuen. We also see an ominous storm cloud with a flag garland attached to it lurking over a small town. If we have to make an educated guess, a logical bet is that the film will focus on a threat from another world or from outer space.
It also seems fitting that the poster is at night. So we can assume that the cloud might be a spaceship, U.F.O., or something else, that’s disguised as cloud. It’s likely that the U.F.O might be observing the town or possibly having a diabolical plan for the town’s citizens. We just know that something terrifying will grace the big screens.
In Peele’s previous films when people have been faced with danger, both strange and supernatural, there is typically an iconic or memorable expression. So for this upcoming film when the people see that mysterious cloud, they might say the expression “Nope.” Who knows?
Jordan Peele’s Nope is scheduled to premiere on theaters on July 22nd, 2022. The film will star Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, and Steven Yuen. The film will have a supporting cast consisting of Barbie Ferreira, Brandon Perea, Ethan Cutkosky, Michael Wincott, Betty Buckley. Music will be done by Michael Abels. Nope will be produced Ian Cooper and Peele himself. Peele also wrote and directed the film. What do you think of the new poster for Nope? What are your theories for the film?
