Nope is an American movie that centered on the science horror genre. The depiction of the genre of the movie was an interesting choice as it fused together with the concepts of science and horror together. There are many movies that revolve around the debate of science vs superstition. But this movie might bring something new to the table. It is trying to navigate unchartered territory. The movie is directed and produced by Jordan Peele. He became the first Black filmmaker who won an Oscar. On the other hand, he won an Oscar for the best original screenplay. He was initially a comedian, but then became a director and directed many critically acclaimed movies like Us, Get Out, etc.
