The straight answer to where you can watch Jordan Peele’s new movie online would ‘Nope,’ not so soon. Touted as one of the three masters of Modern horror, Peel’s third movie, for some time has been constantly pushed towards a wide theatrical release. Universal Pictures has also asked audiences that they watch it on the biggest screen possible, seeing how a lot of it has to be with the technicalities of genre movies and how it is mounted for its viewers that are too obsessed with algorithms.
Reuniting Peele with his ‘Get Out’ star Daniel Kaluuya, the movie also co-stars Keke Palmer, Brandon Perea, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, Keith David, and Wrenn Schmidt. Following siblings OJ and Emerald Haywood, who live in a remote Southwestern rach, the plot follows a mysterious UFO sighting that leaves them, and the nearby resident of the town perplexed and running for their lives.
Currently at an 82% Rotten Tomatoes score, ‘Nope’ has been loved by film critics but audiences are finding its bewildering and often ambitious narrative quite confounding. However, its metaphors of Hollywood as a business and its engulfing and ever-changing nature of devouring low-paid jobs of technicians is quite evident and well realizes.
To top that off, the Spielbergian aesthetic puts this immersive thriller, right up there with the best genre movies in recent memories. Making ‘Nope’ an increasingly successful horror movie that rightfully ticks off another step for director Jordan Peele.
