Director Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) has announced the title and release date of his upcoming horror film. Named Nope, the film is advertised to release on the 22nd of July 2022. Peele announced this on social media by releasing an image of the poster for the film. The poster features a large cloud against a dark sky, a length of bunting trailing into it. The cloud resides over a cluster of brightly lit structures, seemingly a carnival, in a secluded area surrounded by mountain and grass.
The poster also lists three actors’ involvement in the film: Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Queen & Slim), Keke Palmer (Hustlers, Turnt Up with the Taylors), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead, Invincible). Of the three, Kaluuya is the only actor to have previously worked with Peele, having starred as Chris Washington in 2017’s Get Out.
