Tik Tok user Nesha Higgins utters an expletive in her now-viral capture of what appears to be a huge UFO emerging through the clouds.
One might think this was a publicity stunt for Jordan Peele’s upcoming horror movie Nope. But alas it is just Mother Nature doing what she always does; scare the crap out of people.
The video was captured over the cloudy skies of Tempe, AZ. Just like an Independence Day sentry ship, the mass appears to be pushing through the clouds.
In fact, what Higgins (and the rest of us) was experiencing is a phenomenon known as pareidolia. That’s when your brain adds meaning to something nebulous.
That being said, the image is uncanny if you compare it to the poster for Nope.
Universal owes nature’s PR team for this huge UFO
Jordan Peele must be thanking the heavens for this free publicity for his movie which opens on July 22. Although the plot has been kept under wraps, the director has confirmed the movie is about UFOs.
“So I set my sights on the great American UFO story,” he told Fandango. “And the movie itself deals with spectacle, and the good and bad that come from this idea of attention. It’s a horror epic, but it has some points in it that are meant to elicit a very audible reaction in the theater.”
The movie has also inspired a new attraction at Universal Studio’s Hollywood. Guests who pay for a backlot tour will also get to experience Jupiter’s Claim, the fictional town in which the film takes place. It’s the actual movie set created by Production Designer Ruth DeJong. It was dismantled after the movie wrapped and then reconstructed at Universal Studios.
Watch the video below to see Higgins’ reaction. And go see Nope in theaters on July 22.
Marvel Studios’ Special Presentation: Werewolf By Night
Marvel’s Werewolf By Night has just released its official trailer and release date of October 7th. It looks like a fun/creepy retro horror special that will be streaming directly to Disney +.
A page for the special on Disney+ also reveals it’s been rated TV-14 and has been filed under comedy as its genre. Furthermore, the synopsis on the page teases the death of one Ulysses Bloodstone.
“On a dark and somber night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the foreboding Bloodstone Temple following the death of their leader,” the synopsis reads. “In a strange and macabre memorial to the leader’s life, the attendees are thrust into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic—a hunt that will ultimately bring them face to face with a dangerous monster.”
With confirmation the special is involving the Bloodstone Temple, that stands to reason the reports of Donnelly playing Elsa Bloodstone would be accurate. In addition to the eponymous werewolf and Bloodstone, the trailer also confirmed the involvement of Man-Thing.
‘Scream’ Vibes Prevail In Kevin Willamson Co-Penned Story ‘Sick’ Movie Clip
Kevin Williamson hasn’t been too busy over the last few years. But it appears his ideas have. The new movie Sick which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) was inspired by one of the stories he wrote.
Of course we know the Williamson brand. It was everywhere in 90’s horror. That slick storytelling mostly featured cat-and-mouse situations around final girls and unyielding slashers.
It looks like that sensation is back if we take anything away from the exclusive clip Collider proved today. According to the logline we are two getting young women holed up in a lake house during the pandemic. They think they’re alone, but it’s clear someone is out to get them.
Director John Hyams is behind the camera, and it seems he is sticking to that Craven/Williamson aesthetic where the camera moves seamlessly through the scene to focus on an object, dark colors are glossy and landscapes are uplit.
Sick is scheduled to release in Canada on Sept. 11, but that’s according to IMDb. As for the rest of the world, we’ll have to wait and see when it hits theaters.
