Jordan Peele is back with Nope. After the mysterious death of their father, estranged siblings Emerald Haywood (Keke Palmer) and Ottis James (Daniel Kaluuya) reunite at their family’s ranch in California. While staying at the ranch, supernatural occurrences affecting human and animal behavior are noticed by the family and its workers. The siblings do not believe their father’s death was a coincidence. 

What is the Age Rating for Nope?

Nope is rated R for language throughout and some violence/bloody images which means some content may not be suitable for kids under 17. 


Nope has a lot of profanity in it including uses of damn, a**, sh*t, f*ck, motherfu**er, di*k, and hell. There also words of Deity used including g-ddamn.


Gore is heavy in Nope. There are blood spurts and bloody injuries from humans and animals. Blood falls from the sky and comes down windows. An animal eats a body and is violently killed. Children are in peril. You see a character’s mangled face. There are also lots of jump scares.

Mature Content

Some characters drink alcohol, smoke pot, and vape. 

Is Nope Appropriate for Kids Under 17?

Nope is not kid friendly or ok for kids. Age recommendations for Nope are at least 16+ and should be mature enough to handle the content. However, I would even caution on the older side. 

You can expect to to see some blood and gore, intense violent scenes, smoking, alcohol, drug use, and profanity used by some of the characters in Nope.  There is no nudity or sexual content.
