After months of wild guesswork, we ultimately know what Nope is about.
Mysterious new project from Jordan Peele, Nope saw a recent trailer, not to mention a poster reveal, but fans were still unaware of what the film was actually about. Now, a full new trailer gives us insight into the upcoming sci-fi horror flick.
If you don’t want to know anything about Nope, go back now and don’t watch the new trailer!
As you can see, it’s all about UFOs…with a lucrative twist. After encountering a mysterious shape in the sky, ranchers James and Jill Haywood (Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer) decide to make the most of this opportunity. By installing security cameras, they are determined to get evidence of what is going on.
“No one will get what we will get,” says Jill. “Undeniable evidence of extraterrestrials on camera.”
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Jordan Peele movie if things didn’t go spectacularly, and as the trailer progresses we find that it’s not as simple as they make it out to be. clearly hoped. Kevin (Brandon Perea) is brought to the ranch to set up their new UFO detection camera system, while Craig (Michael Wincott) is their own UFO expert. But aliens apparently have none of it.
“I think we pissed them off,” Jill says.
What unfolds is a montage of clips showing the aliens wreaking havoc on the Haywood Ranch, in disturbing and creative ways. A shattered windshield and a trashed rodeo ring are nothing compared to what looks like the kidnapping of an entire rodeo audience. Not to mention Daniel Kaluuya, on horseback, pursued by a huge flying saucer.

Featuring an upbeat soundtrack and energetic performances from Kaluuya and Palmer, this new trailer gives us the best look at Nope we’ve had so far. But whether or not the Haywoods get their pictures or survive the ordeal remains to be seen.
