Glen Powell Trades Jet Planes for Tornadoes in Trailer for Twisters

The 90s came out with a lot of great disaster movies, and one that manages to stand out is Twister starring Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt. The movie followed the story of a group of storm chasers who had to face one of the most violent tornadoes ever in order to make an advanced weather alert system. The movie had done well in the box office, and now decades later, they’re now looking to make a sequel called Twisters.

Check out the trailer for Twisters:

The official description for the film reads:

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 (Golden Globe nominee Anthony Ramos, In the Heights) 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.

Admittedly, it’s hard to gauge just how popular the Twister franchise is after all these years, but a lot of audiences who have seen the original will definitely spot a few easter eggs in the trailer.

For one, the original film had something to do with wireless sensors being released to find out the pattern of the storm, and it looks like there’s going to be an updated version of that in this film that uses some kind of advanced drones.

If the premise isn’t also going to draw you in, it’s possible that the movie is going to be depending on the star power of Powell, Edgar-Jones, and Ramos—who have all been in highly-regarded properties over the past few years.

 Twisters is set to blow away theaters this summer on July 19.
