For Jordan Peele’s forthcoming horror film, Universal Pictures has released a brand-new Nope featurette, which has discussion from Peele, Daniel Kaluuya, and Keke Palmer. The movie is set to premiere on July 22nd.
The video focuses on two main characters, OJ (Daniel Kaluuya) and Em (Keke Palmer) as the director and cast explain their sibling dynamic and friendship, with Peele identifying their relationship as the crux of the movie.

Oscar-winner Daniel Kaluuya, who worked with Peele on the critically acclaimed 2017 film Get Out, will play the lead role in Nope, which is being billed as a vast horror epic. He is joined by actors Keke Palmer (Hustle) and Oscar-nominated Steven Yeun (Minari), who play locals in a desolate gulch in inland California who have seen a startling discovery.
Brandon Perea, Donna Mills, Wrenn Schmidt, Keith David, Eddie Jemison, Barbie Ferreira, Michael Wincott, Terry Notary, Oz Perkins, Andrew Patrick Ralston, and Jennifer Lafleur are among the additional cast members.
Although much information regarding the project’s characters and narrative is currently being withheld, it is anticipated that, like Peele‘s prior two directorial efforts, it will be a psychological horror thriller with socially aware themes relating to race and society.
