Remember the heart-pounding thrill of watching monstrous twisters tear through the screen in the 1996 film “Twister”? Twenty-eight years later, the iconic storm chasers are back, but this time, the stakes are higher and the world they face is vastly different. Mark your calendars for July 19th, because Twisters is hitting theaters, ready to unleash a whole new generation of weather-fueled chaos.
This Ain’t Your Mama’s Tornado
Don’t expect a straight-up sequel. While the original film remains a cult classic, Twisters stands on its own. A fresh narrative unfolds, following a new generation of storm chasers, played by rising stars like Kiernan Shipka, Daisy Edgar-Jones, and “Superman” himself, David Corenswet. Helmed by Oscar-nominated director Lee Isaac Chung (Minari) and penned by Mark L. Smith (The Revenant), the film promises intense action and emotional depth.
While Twisters promises thrilling visuals and edge-of-seat moments, it’s not just popcorn entertainment. It’s a thought-provoking story about resilience, human connection, and the challenges we face in a world grappling with the consequences of climate change.
Mark your calendars for July 19th and prepare to be swept away by the whirlwind of emotions and action that is the new Twisters.
