The plot of Nope revolves around two siblings OJ (Daniel Kaluuya) and Emerald (Keke Palmer) who are overcoming their own adversities after the tragic death of their father. Both siblings run a horse ranch in California. They discover something wonderful and sinister in the skies above.


OJ and Emerald try to get the video of what they saw in the sky to show the world. The fact behind this was the story of their great, great, great-grandfather. He pioneered the motion picture by a way of the complex image of a man on horseback.

After the death of their father, their primary source of income is selling the horse to Ricky “Jupe” Park. (Steven Yeun). Ricky runs a local Western-themed amusement park. He was a child star. He had a traumatic past of a violent on-set animal attack.


The film Nope is filled with suspense and mystery. The appearance of a strange “Craft” makes the story more mysterious. In the ending, it is revealed what the “Craft” in the film is. “Craft” is actually a living flying alien being. 

Jordan Peele describes his idea of writing the Nope as:

It’s about a lot of things. The first notion that I latched onto when I was writing this movie was the idea of making a spectacle. I wanted to make a flying saucer movie because I just felt…if we could feel like we are in the presence of something…other. If we feel like that’s real, then just an immersive expression of going to the movies.”

The film received positive reviews from critics for its originality, character performance, direction, and cinematography. The movie has managed to gross $100 million.
