Filmmaker Jordan Peele’s much-awaited film “Nope” will hit Indian cinemas on August 19, Universal Pictures announced on Friday.
The critically acclaimed title marks Peele’s third directorial debut in the sci-fi horror film, following “Get Out” (2017) and “Us” (2019).
It revolves around siblings who run a horse-farm in the state of California, where residents of a lone gulch witness strange, ominous movements in the sky above.
The situation worsens. The owner of an adjacent theme park is trying to profit from a mysterious, supernatural phenomenon.
“Nope” reunites Peele with his “Get Out” star Daniel Kaluuya, who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in “Judas and the Black Messiah.”
Peele, who has emerged as one of the most successful directors in the horror genre in recent times, said the inspiration for the film was his desire to explore humanity, combined with a sense of existential helplessness.
“I targeted this idea of Tamasha to help bring people to theaters and instill their love for the cinematic experience.
“At the same time, I asked myself the reason why we are so obsessed with the spectacle. Why is the human condition such that we are so addicted to seeing magic, be it beautiful or terrifying?” the filmmaker said in a statement.
The film also stars “Hustlers” actor Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun of “Minari” fame.
