A new promo trailer has popped up online for Francis Ford Coppola‘s latest film, Twixt, which has been getting a lot of buzz from Comic-Con due to the way Coppola wants to present the film. At Comic-Con he showed clips of the film live while reediting it to please the crowd. This means that every time you view the film it will turn out different based on the crowds reactions to certain things.
This sounds like an innovative idea from a veteran director, but I’m more curious in the actual film itself. I don’t mind new gimmicks and ways of sharing and experiencing film, but I want the overall film to be good, not because it can get mixed around, but because it has a solid plot, story, direction and so on.
With that being said I honestly didn’t care for this latest trailer. Something about it looks cheap and the general story didn’t hold my interest. Hopefully it’s just the case of a badly cut trailer and not a bad film in general.
Twixt stars Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning and Ben Chaplin. Check out the trailer below, thanks to Collider.
A writer with a career in decline 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.
