The Movie “Nope” Is Having Good Success
Jordan Peele’s Movie Makes $100M. As a movie director, Peele amazes me. His ability to capture your attention is great. For instance, in the movie “Get Out” there were many twists and turns.
Variety, had this to say about Peele,
“blending race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect, this bombshell social criique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless -which is not at all the same thing as scareless. In fact, from the steady joy-buzzer thrills to its terrifying notion of a new way that white people have found to perpetuate the peculiar institution of slavery, “Get Out” delivers plenty to frighten and enrage audiences. But it’s the fact that Peele doesn’t pull a single one of his punches that makes his Blumhouse-backed debut a must-see event.”
I could not have said it better myself. This movie had me on the edge of my seat. Then Peele came back with “US.” And, once again, I was flabbergasted. In a review from the New Yorker,
No less than “Get Out,” “Us” is a work of directorial virtuosity, in which Peele invests every moment, every twist, every diabolically conceived and gleefully invoked detail with graphic, psychological resonance and controlled tone, in performance and gesture. Here, as in “Get Out,” Peele employs point-of-view shots to put audience members in the position of the characters, to conjure subjective and fragmentary experience that reverberates with the metaphysical eeriness of their suddenly doubled world.”
Well said. That is why his new film “Nope” has a lot to prove. Of course, the press is on. So far, “Nope” has grossed $100 million in the United States. It’s safe to say it will bring in much more revenue.

Although, the Pandemic may have lessened it gross ticket receipts. Nevertheless, check out what some of the critics are saying,
Critics have praised “Nope,” which holds an 82% on Rotten Tomatoes, while audiences gave the film a so-so “B” CinemaScore — the same grade as “Us.” Peele tends to leave audiences feeling unsettled, which may explain the passable exit polls. By comparison, the Oscar-winning “Get Out” landed an “A-” score.”
As I mentioned, “Nope” has yet to be seen worldwide. Keep in mind, that Peele has the ability to woo audiences. Having said this, I suspect box office receipts will supersede our expectations.
