Daisy Edgar-Jones leads the cast of Twister sequel Twisters – and the first trailer is here to feast your eyes on. Gusty.
One of the summer blockbusters that made it through the strike-affected times of last year without any further delay? That’d be Twisters, the sequel to the huge 1996 hit movie Twister. That’d be the one with all the wind, and the flying cow. You remember, right?
It’s taken decades to get to this point, but this summer, we get a sequel to the film. It’s cunningly going by the name of Twisters, and the first trailer for the movie has now landed. We may as well get straight to the point and show you that…
And give you a synopsis while we’re here too.
From the producers of the Jurassic, Bourne and Indiana Jones series comes Twisters, a current-day chapter of the 1996 blockbuster, Twister. Directed by Lee Isaac Chung, the Oscar-nominated writer-director of Minari, Twisters stars Golden Globe nominee Daisy Edgar- Jones (Where the Crawdads Sing, Normal People) and Glen Powell (Anyone But You, Top Gun: Maverick) as opposing forces who come together to try to predict, and possibly tame, the immense power of tornadoes.
Edgar-Jones stars as Kate Cooper, a former storm chaser haunted by a devastating encounter with a tornado during her college years who now studies storm patterns on screens safely in New York City. She is lured back to the open plains by her friend, Javi to test a groundbreaking new tracking system. There, she crosses paths with Tyler Owens (Powell), the charming and reckless social-media superstar who thrives on posting his storm-chasing adventures with his raucous crew, the more dangerous the better.
As storm season intensifies, terrifying phenomena never seen before are unleashed, and Kate, Tyler and their competing teams find themselves squarely in the paths of multiple storm systems converging over central Oklahoma in the fight of their lives.
Said synopsis actually goes on for a bit longer than that, but you get the gist.
Twisters is heading to cinemas on July 19th 2024. It’s penned by Mark L Smith, too, incidentally.
