Jordan Peele Releases Mysterious Trailer for His Horror Epic ‘NOPE’

Back in 2017, comedian Jordan Peele took the film world by storm when he released his directorial and writing debut within the horror genre in the form of Get Out, a film that was darkly chilling and spoke about timely themes while also being surprisingly comedic.

It was the first sign of many that Peele was more than just a comedian. Two years later – in 2019 – he released his sophomore feature Us, which followed a woman named Adelaide Wilson and her family, who proceed to get attacked by a mysterious group of menacing doppelgangers.

Ever since then, audiences have been wondering when they’d be able to get a taste of what’s to come in Peele’s next film NOPE. Today, after several months of waiting, the first official trailer has arrived and proves to be just as mind-numbingly weird as you expected.

You can take a look at the trailer here:

NOPE follows a group of residents in a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery. Other than that, the plotline to Peele’s next film is being kept purposefully vague.

The film – written and directed by Peele and co-produced by Ian Cooper as part of the Monkeypaw Productions banner – stars Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, Brandon Perea, and Barbie Ferreira.

NOPE is scheduled to be released by Universal Pictures in theatres on July 22, 2022.
