Faithspotting “NOPE”

NOPE Universal Pictures

Nope is the newest film from writer / director Jordon Peele and re-teams Peele with star Daniel Kaluuya who starred in Peele’s breakout directorial film Get Out. The film co-stars Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, and Brandon Perea. Other than knowing it is a Neo/Peele style horror film, Kenny and Mike suggest viewing the film fresh, before reading reveiws etc. and as Daniel Kaluuya suggested at the film’s premiere, “with an open mind.” Peele and Kaluuya also teamed as producing partners for the upcoming film, “Honk for Jeus, Save Your Soul.” Follow link below for the podcast and faith notes.
