Megalopolis trailer – Adam Driver stars in bonkers footage with all-star cast | Films | Entertainment

It’s been 40 years in the making and now Francis Ford Coppola calls Megalopolis “the best work I’ve ever had the privilege to preside over.”

Debuting in the battle for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival this month, the Oscar-winning director had to put up his vineyard to finance the $120 million sci-fi experimental epic.

Now the 85-year-old legend behind The Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now has released the latest trailer for what looks to be a truly bonkers, but ambitious movie.

Megalopolis’ synopsis reads: “An accident destroys a New York City-like metropolis already in decay. Cesar, an idealist, aims to rebuild the city as a sustainable utopia, while the venal mayor, Frank Cicero, has other plans.

“Coming between the opposing men and their visions is Frank’s socialite daughter, Julia. Tired of the attention and power she was born with, Julia searches for her life’s meaning.”

The upcoming gamble stars Adam Driver, Nathalie Emmanuel, Giancarlo Esposito, Jon Voight, Laurence Fishburne, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Schwartzman, Dustin Hoffman and more.

A release date is TBC but our best bet would be late 2024 to complete for the Oscars next year.
