Extended trailer for Coppola's Twixt online
A new trailer has arrived for Francis Ford Coppola's latest film Twixt and I'm surprised it's not causing more of a stir, after all this is Francis Ford Coppola. Mind you judging from the trailers we've seen the film isn't his best or most expensive work and that's one reason why mainstream sites might be staying clear of it.
Still while there may not be hordes of helicopters, atmospheric hotels or gang killings there are Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, Ben Chaplin, Joanne Whalley and more.
Despite the cast and the big name behind the script and the direction it doesn't seem that Twixt is going to be saved and from the reviews and comments the film has been gaining neither does it look as though Francis Ford Coppola is garnering the fame of old.
Reviews haven't been good and the trailers haven't helped to sell the film which looks amateurish in places, even the story feels as though it's a little outdated especially in the way it's sold through the trailer.
This new trailer is, according to ShockTillYouDrop who carry it, to mark the limited release in San Francisco, so not stretching that far and sounding as though it's probably heading to a couple of cinemas which aren't too far from where Coppola lives.
Mind you he doesn't need to really try too hard does he? After all he's not desperate for cash nor is he out to curry the favour of critics and reviewers alike.
Here's the blurb for Twixt as a reminder:
A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He's unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.
Now here's the extended trailer which features more footage and more onscreen time for the leading characters.
Would you race to see that because of the names involved? I'm sure it wouldn't be because the trailer won you over.
