Trailer – “Megalopolis”

Director Francis Ford Coppola has released the trailer for his much-anticipated upcoming film, “Megalopolis,” starring Adam Driver, Giancarlo Esposito, Nathalie Emmanuel, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Voight, Jason Schwartzman, Talia Shire, Grace VanderWaal, Laurence Fishburne, Kathryn Hunter & Dustin Hoffman. The film will be have its world premiere at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival. it currently has no U.S. distributor or release date.

Plot Synopsis: An accident destroys a decaying New York City-like metropolis. Cesar Catilina, an idealist architect with the power to control time, aims to rebuild the city as a sustainable utopia, while his opposition, corrupt Mayor Franklyn Cicero, remains committed to a regressive status quo. Torn between them is Franklyn’s socialite daughter, Julia, who, tired of the influence she inherited, searches for her life’s meaning.

What do you all think of the trailer? Well, this certainly looks visually stunning. Francis Ford Coppola’s passion project, which he self-funded by selling off a large portion of his vast wine empire, maybe the Academy Award-winning director’s swan song. It’s tough to say if it will be seen as an artistic masterpiece from one of our greatest living directors to sit alongside “The Godfather” and “Apocalypse Now” or a colossal failure on the level of “Twixt” or “Tetro.” There appears to be some incredible imagery in what will undoubtedly be Coppola’s most ambitious film since “Apocalypse Now.” I’m very excited to see it this week at Cannes, whether it’s good or bad. We should all be lucky to be getting a project of this size from this man in 2024. What do you all think, though?
