Filmmaker Jordan Peele has been surprising audiences in a number of ways with his horror movies, with Nope continuing that trend earlier this year. While audiences were aware that the project would focus on some sort of alien visitation, when audiences finally realized the true threat of the otherworldly "Jean Jacket," it proved that Peele continues to offer unpredictable experiences. With the film headed to home video, a number of featurettes will further explore the mysteries of the narrative, including a featurette that explores how Jean Jacket was influenced by sea jellies. You can watch a clip from this featurette above and grab Nope now on Digital HD and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on October 25th.
Per press release, "Oscar-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) unleashes his latest spine-tingling thriller with Nope, a mysterious sci-fi pop nightmare available to own for the first time as a Collector's Edition on Digital September 20th and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on October 25th from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, this 'spellbinder that keeps pushing boundaries' (Peter Travers, ABC News) will have you never looking at clouds the same way ever again. The exclusive Collector's Edition comes filled with more than 90 minutes of never-before-seen bonus content, including a revealing documentary that dives deep into the film's rich DNA and Peele's extraordinary vision; an exploration into the conception, design, and execution of entity 'Jean Jacket'; deleted scenes, a gag reel and more taking audiences behind the scenes of the out-of-this-world adventure.
"Featuring an incredibly talented and dynamic ensemble cast, Nope is written, directed, and produced by Jordan Peele and showcases outstanding performances by Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Judas and the Black Messiah), Emmy Award winner Keke Palmer (Hustlers, Scream Queens), Oscar nominee Steven Yeun (Minari, The Walking Dead), Michael Wincott (Basquiat, What Just Happened), and breakout star Brandon Perea (The OA).
"Jordan Peele reimagines the summer movie with Nope, an expansive epic of uncanny science fiction. Following their father's shocking death, Hollywood animal wrangler OJ (Kaluuya) and his sister Emerald (Palmer) begin observing unexplained phenomena on their vast Southern California ranch that leads them down an obsessive rabbit hole as they plot attempts to capture the mystery on camera. Along with a former child star turned family theme park ringmaster (Yeun) who neighbors the siblings, the pair's efforts to chase the spectacle soon bring terrifying consequences and unimaginable horror. The result is a complex social thriller that unpacks the seeds of violence, risk, and opportunism that are inseparable from the romanticized history of the American West ... and from show business itself.
