TWISTERS Final Trailer

Twisters being so close to release makes me think of the original. Twister is a curious movie, in that it wouldn’t feature on many people’s lists of the greatest movies ever made, but whenever you find it on TV you just have to watch it. It is simply a damn good time from start to finish.

It harks back to the wonderful time in the 1990s when the multiplex was packed with movies that all at least delivered entertainment and you could go just about every summer weekend and feel it was worth the trip.

The Twister: Ride It Out experience at Universal Studios, Orlando, was also tremendous fun and now sadly departed.

That might look like bad timing Universal Pictures, as Twisters is imminent in theaters. Is it a sequel, or a reboot? Well… possibly both. Early versions of the script had links to the original characters.


If any of that has made it into the finished movie, we will find out shortly. We do know, that’s to the official press releases, that it stars Daisy 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 (Anthony Ramos) to test a groundbreaking new tracking system.

There, she crosses paths with Tyler Owens (Glenn 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.

Now, just two weeks out from release, Universal has dropped a final trailer:

Brandon Perea, Sasha Lane, Daryl McCormack, Kiernan Shipka, Nik Dodani and Maura Tierney co-star. Lee Isaac Chung (Minari) directs from a script by Mark L. Smith (The Revenant).

Twisters opens in cinemas on July 19th.
