Running Time: 107 minutes

Focus Features will release this film in theaters on July 29.

His follow up “Us” detailed sinister doppelgangers and also fared well with the press and audiences. So, expectations have been high for his latest feature.

Readers should keep their assumptions in check. “Nope” isn’t as thematically deep or as terrifying a film as the filmmaker’s previous two efforts. However, it is an enjoyable genre picture that does include...
