Last weekend, Jordan Peele proved himself to once again be a formidable filmmaker at the box office with his epic horror offering, Nope, earning more than $44 million across the US.
For those who have yet to see the frightening film, Nope follows two siblings (Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer) who discover a potentially extraterrestrial presence stalking their remote horse ranch as well as a local tourist attraction operated by a former child star (Steven Yeun).
However, that’s not all that’s buried inside of Nope, because whether it be conscious or otherwise, the film also shares a number of parallels with the original summer blockbuster, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws.
