Director: Jordan Peele

Jordan Peele quickly became an in-demand director after his Oscar winning Get Out shook audiences. He’s now back with his third film, NOPE, looking to challenge audiences all over again. Peele reunites with Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya who stars as O.J. Haywood. He works for his family business training horses for Hollywood movies. He’s struggling over his father’s tragic and untimely death. His sister, Emerald (Palmer), also works for Haywood’s Hollywood Horses and is the energetic face of the company. Their latest client is Jupe, played by Steven Yeun. He’s a former child star who now runs a small little amusement park with attractions and side shows. There’s something shifty going on with Jupe, which comes at the same time O.J. and Emerald believe they’ve seen a UFO in the sky. In true Jordan Peele fashion, it goes from mysterious to shocking as he takes his audience on one wild, alien ride.
