In July 2022, respected writer cum director, Jordan Peele, released his long-awaited third film titled ”Nope” in Hollywood. However, it took about 2 months before they officially entered the Southeast Asia market. Though, what makes us fans so intrigued about the film is that it is a sci-fi horror movie that elevates both of those genres to previously unseen heights. “It’s a grander journey than I’ve ever tried to convey,” Jordan Peele said of the picture. From a cinematic standpoint, this is by far my most ambitious.”

Jordan collaborated with famous cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema to make the first horror film to be broadcast on IMAX cameras. In classic Jordan Peele flair, Nope has awed old and new fans, subverted and surpassed audiences’ expectations, and swept over the present cultural debate, spawning a flood of fresh questions about cinema and our connection with it.

Jordan Peele has characterised Nope as telling “the big American UFO narrative.” Peele totally deconstructs any beliefs about aliens that the media has offered us with in the past in various but seamless ways. He described Nope as an unusual extraterrestrial film that explores the concept of spectacle and “the good and the terrible that arise from this idea of attention” through the lens of otherworldly powers.

The first concept of spectacle introduced by Jordan Peele in the film is the debate over Eadweard Muybridge’s creation of the first moving image in the nineteenth century.

The ways in which some experiences may actually transform a person’s character, or make them act on their deepest, darkest aspects, were equally frightening and disconcerting throughout the movie. This demonstrated how easily individuals can turn devastating events in their life or around them on their heads and use them for personal benefit.

To cut it short, this movie heavily welcomes those interested in Sci-Fi horror like the X-Files. So, are you ready to explore the darkest, dark secret about aliens? Nope officially hit Malaysia’s theatres starting September 15th, 2022.
