Nope had its premiere in Los Angeles last night, and soon after it was over, the near-universal stance is that Peele is 3 for 3 after scoring with get-out and Us. Most are calling the film extremely ambitious, while there are a lot of comparisons to Steven Spielberg, Close Encounters of the Third Kindand jaws. Our very own JimmyO said in his quick thoughts on social media, “#NopeMovie is an absolute blast!! @JordanPeele has crafted a loving homage to fans of a certain Spielberg masterpiece – I’ll let you figure that out. The cast is excellent, and the sound and set designs are impeccable!” You can check out some of the other first reactions below!
