Nope comes out next week, but the world around this film is still very mysterious. Here are all we know so far.

“If you’re at all a follower of good horror movies, then you’re probably just as excited as we are for Jordan Peele’s upcoming scary-looking, sci-fi film, Nope. Set to release this month, on July 22nd, it certainly looks like it’ll be just as much of a trip as his past films. There’s, as expected, a lot of secrecy around this film, and we can probably expect some twists on our expectations. That said, watch the trailer below and we’ll tell you everything we know!”

“Following the release of The Boys Season 3 finale last week, the series’ showrunner Eric Kripke has confirmed that certain storylines from Season 3 will lead into the debut season of its The Boys Presents: Varsity spinoff, leading to the possibility of seeing familiar characters. ‘There’s definitely crossover, and we’re doing our best to design a universe that sees some of the issues and storylines in Season 3 hand off to the first season in Varsity,; Kripke told Deadline. ‘Like there’s a presidential campaign happening in the background of that season, and there are certain things that are happening at that school that are both in reaction to Season 3 of The Boys. There’s Soldier Boy, etcetera, but also some new storylines that are happening in that season of the spinoff that we have to pick up and take into Season 4 of the show.'”
