Fans have been looking up all summer, whether it was to see the Top Gun: Maverick top graduates or to look for clues to director Jordan Peele’s elusive UFO in his third movie hit Nope.

The latter has kept viewers puzzled by the details of each scene, from the enigmatic upright shoe to the motorcycle rider’s incredibly limited screen time, despite the fact that both films were summer successes. When asked about tidbits fans had found, Peele seems hesitant to provide too much information, although he did hint that more from the world of O.J. (Daniel Kaluuya) and Emerald (Keke Palmer) would be revealed.

Peele’s promotion in the months before the movie’s theatrical debut kept fans guessing, just like it did with his two previous films, the Oscar-winning Get Out and Us. It appeared as though more of the tale was being revealed with each new teaser and trailer as layers were pulled back. Then, when at last we were able to witness the terrible events taking place on those IMAX screens, people were struck with wonder but also with a need to learn more. Nope has brought in an astounding $148 million since its first weekend as we, the audience, go back one more time to truly appreciate the scope of Peele’s storytelling.

In his interview, Peele was candid about the typical queries, outlining his choice to use IMAX cameras as well as the inspirations behind his third full-length film. The moment the director heard about the shoe that defied gravity, he began to back off. Peele revealed, though he kindly declined to say more, “But I can say, from a character-driven aspect, the scene is about a moment in which a dissociative psychological switch gets flicked for the character.”

It was a single peculiar, upright shoe that made moviegoers’ hair stand up in a movie about a massive UFO pursuing the people of a rural gulch in California. On the set of the family-friendly sitcom Gordy’s Home!, a particularly terrible massacre occurs, and little Ricky ‘Jupe’ Park (Steven Yeun) notices his co-shoe, star’s which was misplaced in the commotion and is now pointed upward.

Peele was questioned about a figure fans discovered labeled as “Nobody” on IMDB in relation to Gordy the Chimp’s attack. The comedian Michael Busch, who has played a number of small roles in shows and commercials but doesn’t show up in the finished product of the movie, is given credit for creating the character. Busch was briefly spotted walking across what appeared to be a movie lot with his hands quietly in his pockets while standing in one of Nope’s trailers. The most shocking part is that everyone is stumbling over one another to flee in the opposite direction, away from what viewers can only guess is the carnage taking place on-set.

When prompted about this perplexing character, Peele acknowledged the sleuthing fans were doing and said:

“The story of that character has yet to be told, I can tell you that. Which is another frustrating way of saying, I’m glad people are paying attention. I do think they will get more answers on some of these things in the future. We’re not over telling all of these stories.”

Gordy’s Home! ultimately pales in comparison to the Haywoods’ quest to get the ideal picture, even though the two parallel plots are linked by Ricky’s inability to overcome his childhood trauma. Peele’s purposefully evasive response seems to suggest there might be a follow-up movie given Nobody’s absence from the actual movie but the eerie glimpse of him in the teaser. Undoubtedly, a Nope prequel would please the fans, but only time shall tell.

Nope is still showing in theaters and is accessible for rental via VOD on all significant streaming platforms. The trailer for “Nobody” is shown below.
