Universal Pictures certainly saved the best for the last with Jurassic World: Dominion at CinemaCon 2022. Several Hollywood A-listers starting with Dominion star Jeff Goldblum, Halloween Ends actor Jamie Lee Curtis, Steve Carell, the voice of Gru in Minions: The Rise of Gru to NOPE director Jordan Peele graced the stage during Universal and FOCUS features CinemaCon 2022 presentation – to offer never before seen footage from their respective blockbuster titles. In fact, “Every single thing we show you today has never been seen by an audience before,” said a Universal representative on stage.

After Disney’s lengthy 70-minute long presentation unpacking Marvel Studios, Pixar and 20th Century studio titles, Universal and FOCUS took the stage later that night. Beginning with Us director Peele, unveiled a two-minute special preview for NOPE, which also seems to have addressed the film’s plot. However, the director asked attendees to stay hush-hush on the exact details. “I’m going to personally thrive on the amount of times I hear the word nope when NOPE hits theatres,” said Peele. NOPE was shot in 65mm IMAX and the director added that they used “new techniques we’ve never seen before.”
