‘Nope’ Earns An R Rating For Violence, Bloody Images

by Thomas Tuna

Looks like this will be one bloody invasion.

Nope–the latest Jordan Peele horror show–this week was predictably rated R for “language throughout and some violence and bloody images,” according to the MPAA.

This third Peele feature film–following the successes of Get Out and Us–will follow the residents of “a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery,” according to the logline. The film lands in theaters July 22.

Nope–written, directed and produced by the Oscar-winning Peele–stars Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, Barbie Ferreira and Brandon Perea.

Peele told Fandango that, with Nope, he wanted “to create a spectacle. I set my sights on the Great American UFO story. The movie deals with spectacle, and the good and bad that come with this idea of attention.”

Peele called the film “a horror epic, and it has some points that are meant to elicit a very audible reaction in the theater. Hopefully when we see it, we’re going to hear a lot of, ‘Nope’.”
