Listen to the podcast version of this story, featuring interview soundbites and audio clips from this weekend’s new releases.

This weekend, filmmaker Jordan Peele reunites with “Get Out” star Daniel Kaluuya in the expansive horror epic “Nope” while directors Anthony and Joe Russo reunite with “Captain America” and “Avengers” star Chris Evans in the action-packed summer blockbuster “The Gray Man.”

In “Nope,” Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun star as residents of a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to the uncanny and chilling discovery of a mysterious force that affects human and animal behavior. The expansive horror epic, which was written and directed by Jordan Peele, is playing exclusively in theaters.

Meanwhile, “The Gray Man” stars Ryan Gosling as a CIA operative who was plucked from a federal penitentiary and recruited by his handler — played by Billy Bob Thornton — and made to be a highly-skilled, Agency-sanctioned merchant of death. However, now the tables have turned, as he finds himself a target, hunted across the globe by his former CIA cohort — played by Chris Evans — who will stop at nothing to take him out. The action-packed summer blockbuster, which was directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, is streaming exclusively on Netflix.

Whether you say “yep” to “Nope” or uncover CIA secrets with “The Gray Man,” this weekend’s new screen releases will have you on the edge of your seat.
