jordan peel latest movie, No, hits theaters on July 22, and even with the teasers and trailers released for the film, a lot is still unknown about it, even as the story is clearly in space. About visitors. But the film has much more than that, with experiences not only in their existence, but also in their reaction to those affected by this alien threat. Now, Knope star Daniel Kalua goes a little further and compares the film to another, classic film that deals with alien contact: Close Encounters of the Third Kind,
Speaking with Peele in an excerpt for Essence, the pair talked about how they wanted No To “cross the horror genre”, to which Kalua compared the film. close EncountersCall it more horror-adventure.
“No– I feel like it’s almost a horror-adventure. I hope you don’t mind me saying like close Encounters,” Kalua said. “I remember when I first saw it, probably about four years ago, and I was like, Wow, this has stood the test of time. It’s an incredible film now, especially with all the technology and all kinds of things that he’s managed to make. It’s essentially like epic horror. Another director I know said, “I’m not a minimalist, I’m a maximalist.” And I love when black people go for it—because fuck it. Why not? We are in the game. Go to hell. It seems to me that this is it. For me, it’s about what genre can you rediscover? And what style can you extend? I feel like you’ve already expanded on Terror, and now you’re doing it again – giving it scale and epic. I like to push the envelope. We’re in a creative industry, but people sometimes handle it like they’re working in a bank. This is crazy for me. Let’s go – let’s make. I don’t like hearing, ‘Oh, I’ve never seen that before.’ that’s the point. That’s why people watch movies. So, it was amazing to be at the center of something that I loved watching even as a kid.
