Jordan Peele’s ‘NOPE’ Is First Horror Epic To Be Shot With IMAX Film Cameras

A new featurette has revealed that Jordan Peele‘s upcoming film NOPE is the first horror epic to be shot using IMAX Film Cameras.


The two-minute behind-the-scenes clip explores how Peele and cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema utilized the technology of IMAX’s iconic 15/65mm cameras for NOPE, allowing them to fill the IMAX screen directly “with unprecedented crispness and clarity.” The director shared, “IMAX is movie magic pushed to its limit. When you see a film in an IMAX theater, it feels like you are there. It’s complete immersion, and there’s nothing quite like it. And we are only at the beginning, there’s still so much to be explored in this format.”

NOPE will mark Peele’s next film following Get Out and Us:

“The film reunites Peele with Oscar® winner Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Judas and the Black Messiah), who is joined by Keke Palmer (Hustlers, Alice) and Oscar® nominee Steven Yeun (Minari, Okja) as residents in a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery.

Nope, which co-stars Michael Wincott (Hitchcock, Westworld) and Brandon Perea (The OA, American Insurrection), is written and directed by Jordan Peele and is produced by Ian Cooper (Us, Candyman) and Jordan Peele for Monkeypaw Productions. The film will be released by Universal Pictures worldwide.”
